A- pale gold with creamy white that lasts and leaves lacing; visible carbonation
S- not much. Some undefined malty sweetness but not much more than that
T-similar to smell. Sweetness with maybe a bit of hops bitterness on the finish. Again, nothing definable.
M- thinner and a little fizzy.
O- a pretty boring lager. Didn't disrupt my sushi but I wanted more from it.

The beer pours a dark yellow color with a nice even cap of foam floating above. The appearance is typical of an adjunct lager. The aroma is mainly bready. The flavor is light and clean save a few hints of husk. The adjunct emerges a little more as it warms. Nothing extraordinary here, but it would do well washing down Japanese fare.
