Basically a better version of Sapporo. A little more to the aroma and much more to the taste of regular Sapporo. Enjoyed this beer far more than regular Sapporo of Kirin. I would actually buy it to drink at home.

Here comes the prototypical fizzy yellow beer. Doesn't retain a head. Fizzes up white, but crashes with no wave. Aroma was mild nothingness of grain, rice type of thing.

Taste, well there's lots of carbonation, a little twinge of hops and bitterness. Six row I'm thinking and rice. Watery, good for food I guess. I don't know why it is so relatively expensive, I guess its because it comes from half way around the world, or they just have a good marketing department to make people think this is exotic and imported.

Weak and watery, pours a pale golden (like ginger ale) color. No head to speak of. Taste is weak and almost non-existant. Not much to speak of from this offering.

This was a bit better than the Asahi, a bit softer on the taste buds, a bit more enjoyable going down. But it still is not a drink to savor, to hold in your mouth and get the full flavor before letting it slide down. Went better with the tapas we ordered and I sipped it through the first part of the meal. This beer complimented the food better and I guess was more to my western taste. Still a bit thin for me.
