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.

35cl can from a nearby Family Mart in Tokyo. Pours clear golden with a modest white head. Mild grainy aroma with just a hint of fruits and possibly honey. Sweet, watery and not much flavour or bitterness to speak of. Close to sparkling water.

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).

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.
