12oz undated bottle poured into a pokal glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on bottle. The beer pours bright straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is mostly yeast driven, but I get some grain and faint lemon as well. The taste is minimal with slight grain, no hops and a barely tart flavor. Mouthfeel is very thin bodied, adequately carbonated and "super" dry in the finish. Overall, interesting tick. I'm not sure that I would ever seek out another unless it was in a Japanese restaurant. Nothing offensive, but nothing exciting.

I will admit, the malt work with the rice sweetness does go well together. However the metallic aftertaste is rough, and the smell has a dry cracker character to it. But the feel is solid for the style

This one holds a special place in my heart when I went to Japan and had my first legal beer. Even without the nostalgia, I still think it's solid, if not great.

A: Pours a clear golden color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Grain and malt up front along with light spicy hoppiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the grain and hearty maltiness and goes into a balancing spicy hop character. Finishes with lingering malt

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice, easy drinking rice lager. Nothing too special or noteworthy. Good for what it is

The beer is a pale yellow with a thick, white, foamy head. Lots of visible carbonation. The beer smells crisp, clean, stereotypical Pilsner. The taste is very similar to a Miller or a Bud but a little cleaner and crisp. It feels smooth, cold and crisp. The overall taste and feel reminds me of baseball and beer.

12oz can, plastic airline cup, 201812 and 201804 on the bottom.

Very clear Pilsner yellow with a billowy head that maintains well.

Pilsner malt, wet rice, crisp, clean

Crisp malt, grain, clean crackery yeast. There’s a bit of a funky wet grain finish. Hops provide just the essential tempering and that’s it.

It’s very bubbly as you’d expect. It’s light, effervescent, with a light matte finish.

In style I’m guessing it’s one of the standards. A riff on German style beer from a country that imports every ingredient except water. There just isn’t much flavor, which is why I’ve always eschewed Japanese beers.

Just an awful Japanese light beer. Unfortunately it is by far the most popular beer in Japan.

Pours a clear straw color with a finger of white foamy head. Head retention is fair. Aroma is light, hitting notes of rice, and herbal but nothing beyond that. Flavor profile is again - light. It hits notes of rice and a light herbal dose. Mouth feel is crisp, dry, and medium-thin. Overall, it's a simple rice lager, so not much in terms of aroma and flavor. It does make for a refreshing drink.

Served in a 16oz shaker pint. Draft. Reviewed from notes.

Bottle bought while eating Japanese at a restaurant. Clear straw. Low frothy head.
Lemony aroma. Some grain. but not much there really.
Minimal flavour profile. Demi-sec.
Light in carbonation and body.
Went well with the meal.
