Sweet malt aroma. Mostly caramalt flavor with a touch of pine hops, mild bittersweet finish. For this price it’s a probably a better beer imitation than most happoshu’s. Refreshing but probably wouldn’t drink more than one. Drink it cold and fast cos it quickly deteriorates.

Can 350ml (Osaka)
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweet corn-like aroma. Light-bodied. A bit cardboardish, sweetcorn flavor. Typical sweetish supermarket lager with very low bitterness.

KyotoLefty (6581) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2012
Can from Yamaya. ¥154. Nice deep gold, but heqd vanishes instantly and the it looks like ginger ale. Malty nose, slightly fruity, with sweet orange. Sweet malt, fruity, with strong hop bitterness in the finish, though little hop aroma or flavor. Decent enough for the price, but far from really good.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 17, 2012
Can, bought in a Maxx Value supermarket in Yanai-shi, Yamaguchi. Clear light golden, small lively white head. aroma of a cheap straw lager like with some sweetness. Thin mouthfeel. flavour is no offense but simple, lightly hoppish like with something malty . Simple but drinkable.

maekchu (2205) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 17, 2012
Can from Aeon Kumiyama liquor shop. Thin malt, grass, bit of hop in the nose. Dark straw (very dark for a lager like this), thin head, good lacing. Pretty damn malty with good hop balance. A bit too fizzy though. Very full bodied for a lager. Fairly clean and crisp for a discount cheapie. Made in Korea -- and it’s certainly the best Korean-made beer (despite my moniker) that I’ve ever had.
