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.
