Aroma: fairly fruity aroma for lager. Sweet berry notes with malty behind. 6-
Appearance: golden brew with medium plus sized white top.
Palate / Taste: Fruity front with malty approach. Felt bit flat for lager as well. Plain. No major flaws just quiet washed out of character.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2012
Can from a Lawson Conv. Store. 4%. Medium gold with a full, thick head. Big malty nose, rich cereals and wheat, a bit of butter. Sweet and rich malt flavor, quite a bit of diacetyl. Fruity, estery, banana and peach. Decent but too sweet and buttery. Full, rich mouth. Not much hop action.

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - JUL 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 Can - listed as 4%. Also as Cains Premium Export Lager. Has an interesting aroma - almost like raisin bread. Yeah, raisin bread big time. Good full body, bready, crystal malt, a touch of sweetness and a smooth bitter finish. Much better than expected. Pretty straight forward and not brimming with flavour, but a good little number.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can. Poured pale gold with a large white, fairly dense head. Aroma was grassy, floral hops and some mild malt. Flavor was that plus some generic fruitiness. Rather sweet, low bitterness; needed some more balance on this count. Thick mouthfeel.
