I drank this beer before and during dinner at a sushi restaurant. It was a nice compliment to sushi. I tried this beer out of a 22oz can. It's pour resulted in a low, short-lived head and had low carbonation overall. The aroma was light, crisp, and slightly skunky. It consisted of a light, clean, and crisp taste, but was distinctly light and clean - better than an average American pale lager. I enjoyed the difference in the quality of this beer in comparison to other pale lagers. Despite my enjoyment, it wasn't anything extraordinary. It was a nice, new experience, but an average beer, nonetheless.

Japan's Budweiser? Pours a light gold color with a slight fizzy head. Smell is of a slightly sweet, carbonated starchiness -- mostly what you would expect from a basic lager. Obviously pairs well with a nice japanese bento box. Very easy to drink thanks to the right amount of carbonation and an overall freshness. Finishes dry. Solid beer.
