Can: Poured a clear golden colored beer with a pretty decent head with standard retention. Aroma is very weak, almost watery I should say. Taste is also quite watery and boring. I guess it would go well with the kind of spicy food where you loose all your taste buds. Taste is even worse when I notice that this is brewed by Sleeman at their Guelph facility.

Here's another macro-styled light-tasting lager beer that comes closer to tasting unfermented grain water than drinking a beer.

The lack of hop is disappointing but expected. Thin bodied, highly carbonated. Yep, get out the lawn mower, work up a sweat and down this in seconds, then you might find it satisfying.

This beer reminds me of Sapporo Premium. In fact, I can't come up with any discernable differences. It is a pale straw color with a weak beige head. The nose and taste are both ricey and a bit skunky. A light boddy has more than ample carbonation and does not go down well.

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.

12 oz bottle in Japanese restaurant. Pours a pale straw with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is of grass, some hops and sweet malt. Flavor is light hops with some biscuit malt. Finish is not existent. Body is watery. At least it was not disgusting
