1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The recipe has been changed!! That’s official!! So...so sad! When first released this low malt beer was an instant success story NO JOKE!
Great hop bite, wet and clean. It has now joined the ranks of wet cardboard
and ...."Who cares??"
Just pathetic.....obviously an attempt to rival Kirin’s long selling Nodogoshi
It is a total let down. Bland as water. It’s a corporate mess like Yahoo.
Move along now....nothing to enjoy at all.

350 ml can, thanks to Ingo! Sampled on April 7, 2015.
Clear golden color, big white head at first, dies down fast though, some lacing. Light fruity estery scent, some pear and golden apples. Cream, light fruity taste. Fruity aftertaste, also a bit stale. Weak mouthfeel, rather low CO2. Low bitterness.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This isn’t even real beer. Pale yellow. White head. No real aromas to speak of. Taste is rice with a slight amount of graininess. Avoid at all costs (even if handed to you).

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sporting an ugly can, ugly smell, and ugly taste this is the posterchild of sub-standard daisan. Not the worst out there, but checks all the boxes for what you think of as a bad beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I couldn’t pick up a noteworthy aroma of any kind, but this beer isn’t bad, and preferable over Happoshu equivalent brews. A very standard beer in colour. RICE taste, and fairly dry. I like the palate, the bubbles have impact and run all over the tongue. Better than expected, not bad at all!
NOTE: This is a Happosei (発泡性), somewhere between a Happoshu and beer.

From a can poured a golden color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can 330ml (Nagoya)
Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma has very ligh corn notes. Light-bodied. "Clear", clean flavor ... or lack of it. Mostly just some sweetish corn maltyness. Low bitterness. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light golden coloured body with a crisp white head that’s about a centimetre tall. Light malt aroma with some rice and lemons noticeable and very little else. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive rice flavours with not much malt and very little sweetness or anything else of substance. Aftertaste shows a subdued sweetness and perhaps a touch of malt, but that’s it - very easy drinking and not much going on, but at least no bitterness or offensive qualities. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from 7-11 in Narita, Japan on 20-June-2014 for ¥110 sampled a few minutes later in my hotel room in Narita.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
aromat starego chmielu. kolor i piana typowe dla stylu. w smaku odrobinę bardziej goryczkowe niż inne japońskie lagery z koncernów. nic specjalnego.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Skunky smell. Tastes like a dirty straw/grain soda, mild grass hops, watery finish. Clear-ly a fail...
