A: Exceptionally clear straw coloured beer. Pours with small reasonable head that soon subsides. Pretty standard stuff.

S: Not much at all in the way of smell. Just a slight hint of sweet malt.

T: Pretty watery, with the malt coming threw. No hops really a tiny bit of citrus, but really hardly noticable. This is very clean, watery beer more akin to a mass produced Lager, with only a little more depth to it, in terms of the malt. Northing much.

M: Goes down well. Crisp, balanced and dry with a good level of carbonation.

O: This is fine. If I had the choice I would probably choose it over the huge brewers in Japan (Asahi, kirin and the like), but that is the problem with this beer, it's in that realm, and not really doing anything more. One for the salary army who don't really want to think about what there drinking and just get it down as quick as possible before work starts again. This is by no means bad, pretty good really, but nothing remotely exciting.
