Had it with hibachi at a Japanese Steakhouse. Accompanied the meal well. Didn't really stand out from Sapporo or Kirin in my opinion. I think since i've tried all three, from now on i'll probably favor Sapporo.

Toward the end of the bottle, it started to taste a little bitter. I didn't finish the bottle. I left about a finger and a half in it.

I'm not really a beer specialist, but I know what I like. So my overall score is a 3.5 and i'm just giving the other things a 3.5 since you can't skip that part.

Had recently in Japan, both bottle & can, but not on Tap. When came back to the States, found it in Bottle.

Light golden/straw beer, typically alot lighter than I drink (I did have the Black version in Japan - more my style).

Good head (small fine bubbles) and did sink down a bit (when poured in glass). Some carbonation.

Aroma was mild w/ hints of rice and some sweetness.

Flavor was mild, sweet to start then finishing to faint bitterness.

Worked well with everything we ate (beef, pork, chicken & burgers). Best consumed cold, toward the end of the bottle can get somewhat bitter when up to room temp.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is pleasant, all rice.
The taste is tempered sweetness, a touch of mild dry bitterness at the end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Not my favorite style, but this beer isn't bad... not great though.
