500ml bottle shared at home. Pours clear light yellow with a thin white head, low carbonation for the style, the head doesn’t hang around. Grassy and biscuit aromas, perhaps white grapes. Classic ’Lager’ aftertaste, something vegetal. Decent bitterness, decent enough beer.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Kyoto Daimaru basement supermarket. Light yeasty nose, with some citrus, peach, grain, and buttered corn. Medium gold straw color, thin head, some lace. Light pale malt, grass, sweetness emerges in mid palate, tiny sour note, and small bitter tracks in finish. Thin-medium body. Pleasant. Balanced. Hits the sweetness level at about the right point.

23.10.2014. Clear golden. Aroma is a bit different, grain, malts and butter of lager but also some saison style yeast and citrus. Taste is also similar but a bit milder. Although different it still feels somehow unbalanced and strange. However, considering the abv its quite good.

A bit fizzy as you'd expect. Quite a flowery taste but hardly any aroma. Very sweet and tastes like sweet honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IrishBoy (4112) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
500 ml bottle from my friend in Aberdeen; BB 11 09. Label says 5% ABV. Nose is grassy hops and some earthy grains and light yeast. Clear pale gold with a big, lightly lacing, long lasting, yellow tinged head. Flavor is lightly bitter with lots of cereal graininess. One of th e tastiest pale lagers I have had, of course most have been American. Could drink this one anytime.

Keg at Cloisters. A golden ale with an excitable white head. Caramel, yeasty nose and flavour. Some grassy hop flavours also. Moderate carbonation. Quite decent for a lager!

Bottle. Classic lager appearance, This is at the top end of pale lagers - credit to Black isle for making a good beer in what is generally a poor style.
