Tap at CBM Sendai. Nice, lots of citrus, bit of lemon but more orange than anything. Taste has some maltiness too in the body. Kind of sweet, caramel. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Yellow Ape. Crystal clear deep gold, nice lacing. Bright Saaz aroma, crackery, floral hop. Lively minerally feel, a fair amount of hopping, but a lingering flavour of sweet malt that holds in nicely in check. Really crisp and refreshing, perfect for this 36 degree day.

Baird's Cool Breeze Pils 6% 40 IBU
A bit higher ABV than I look for in a summer sipper but the cloudy gold topped with a wisp of foam is appealing.
Fresh herbal mint and green hoppy aroma. Medium bodied with a crisp semi-dry finish.
The taste is whole grain breadiness with a herbal I'm guessing noble hop bite. Nicer than Little Norway but I'm gonna put that down to freshness. Lagers like IPAs are meant to be drunk fresh in my book.

Bottle. Aroma: floral, spicy, lemony, husky. Light bodied but enough to feel substantial. Has that caramelised bread crust feel in the malt with a dry, spicy and bitter finish. Refreshing. Pretty good pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bulldog. Served in horrible condition, almost flat and warm... I do see good potential though with decent bready cereal body followed by green hops and a bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Naka-Meguro Taproom summer 2014. Clear golden color with soapy white head. Lemongrass, lime and some citrus on the nose. Hop forward with malts only coming across muted on the palate. Very refreshing with a medium body. Crisp and dry finish. Not really a pilsner fan but this was nice.

Draught at Baird Nakameguro
Pours clear orange with a large frothy white head.
Smells of grass, orange, herbs. Taste is crisp, fresh grassy hops. Really enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Light citrus nose, floral, not Saazy. Hazy medium straw color, 1-cm. fluffy head. Thin malt, with a slight fizz-up of mild hoppiness. Thin-medium body. Okay. Gentle, some good flavors, but not much like a pils.
