500 mL bottle into a pint glass. Clear, golden, gassy with a good foamy head. The aroma is ok, malty with plenty of hop, but not very adventurous. Malty, bitter, but surprisingly smooth for the strength. Has a cereal, Shreddies like aftertaste. Not too considering but Iím not going to be insisting my friends try it.

Bottle at home from notes 2011. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet grainy malt, corn, skunky notes, faded hops, a hint of floral, very mild bitterness, dry finish. Not very good.

ContemplateBeer (1540) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma: Sweet and corn puffy with a whiff of something that almost reminds me of a pear liquer. Appearance: Royal gold with a white head that settles into a bubbly ring. Flavor: Spirit-like, and fruitier than any lager should be with some weird pear esters; corn sweetness is there, but itís not unpalatable. Alcohol lets itís Russian flag fly. Palate: Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Hard to rate this by the numbers; itís a pretty poor lager overall, but is pretty cheap and fills your need for something a little more stiff. And, really, I didnít find myself saying "this is terrible" but rather "I like this more than I want to admit." My rating reflects the latter.

Clear golden yellow beer with small head. Aroma has barley malts, hay, slight honey sweetness and hint of grassy notes. Taste has sweet honey, barley malts, with an unpleasant after taste. Boozy lager with high carbonation.

maekchu (2127) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 20, 2014
500ml. can from Kyoto Yamaya. Strongish sweet malt nose, with light alc. fumes. Clear pale straw, thick fluffy white head, good lace. Sweet fruity initial, peaches, carrot juice, white wine, grain serious alc. warmth, very little bittering. Thin-medium body. Heavy duty grainy stuff. Overall, not so good. A beer that you feel rather too quickly, without any compensating flavors to make it worthwhile.

16.9oz bottle. Pours a fizzy yellow with foamy white head. Grainy aroma. Extremely sweet, like cotton candy sweet. Light bodied and drinkable. Sweet finish. Almost like malt liquor. Not much here to recommend.

Poured at tasting with 2 others and I was the only one brave enough to swallow. Pale yellow with a weak white "head" little to no aroma and taste was same. Terrible, drain pour.
