A well balanced fusion of malt & floral hop, with a clean dry citrus finish.

KyotoLefty (6569) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle at the Seiyu supermarket, which, like ASDA, is also part of the Walmart Empire. \298. Floral, citrus hop nose, slight caramel malt, bread, cherries or grapes. Fruity, reasonably nice. Light amber-orange color, tall, fine head. Nice clean maltiness, somewhat sweet, fruity, good bitter finish. Full but not heavy. Enjoyable and well balanced. Great deal for the price of a Japanese major lager.

leaparsons (8174) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. Golden brown with a thin foam. Aromas are grain and toast with light lemon and dusty notes. Some floral, soapy aspects. Flavours are grain and mellow lemon with peppery notes Dry with low bitterness. Not much going on here.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottled 25/05/13. A proper brown coloured beer - not at all golden - with a white head. Very husky and grainy. A sweetness and a grassy hoppiness in the nose but then it’s grainy malts all the way. Substandard.

Rob_D_UK (806) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Gold, lasting creamy white head and gentle condition. Gentle fruity hop aromas with a touch of toffee sweetness. Quite sweet in the mouth with a hint of caramel and a low dry chalky bitterness, short sweet and slightly chalky finish.

shoestring (271) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2013
’Spritzy’ it how I would describe mouthfeel. It improved as it warmed up (served too chilled). Maliness was there - and hops came through.

Fairground (29) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Really roasted and hoppy taste with an aroma of citrus and zingy lemon. Nice,

Westkyoto77 (530) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 6, 2013
Honey brown, pretty white head. Reasonable nose of hips, some fruit, settled hay. Didn’t quite get the citrus that was talked up on the bottle, but some nice hops. Medium body, pretty smooth and creamy. Rounded finish, fairlly sweet aftertaste. At 300 yen for a 500ml bottle, I’d call it good value.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAR 2, 2013
Not a bad little brew for 300 yen. Wafts of lemon, citrus rind and malt. Clean crystal malt body, floral hops and a lemon citrus finish. A pretty damn good budget beer.

dynamiteninja (1540) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber body. Medium white head. Spice, orange peel, grassy, lemony, fruity. Bittersweet. Dry finish. A kind of minerally aftertaste. A little oily mouthfeel, and fizzy on the palate. This beer is like a flavoursome lager.

mr_h (2930) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2012
