i drink this on tap at my local sushi places as i find super hoppy or heavy craft beers dont mesh well with raw fish
had this on tap last night at hapa sushi in boulder co
on tap pint glass
looks is a pale gold small very white head
smell is yeasty and rice
taste is slight citrus bubbly and light easy to drink with a bit of a bitter aftertaste
excellent palate cleanser for eating raw fish and my go to when dining out for sushi
also low abv means i can down many of these and some sake and still be able to function

Surprisingly, this light crisp beer is not too bad at an all night Karoke joint

The can is great quality. This beer has a bit of a bitter taste. If you'd like to get into strong beer, this is a good one to start with.

Original draft beer, but I had it on draft - wondered if this beer was pasteurized? Probably the best of the Japanese lagers, IMHO.

Having to justify my rating with a review is highly annoying.

Nothing special for this beer but pretty good taste.
somewhat strong grain flavor in this but it is okay.
