3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light clear straw colour with thin dissipating head which belies its significant palate. A very pleasant light bitterness refreshing pale ale (I'd say much more than a Pilsner which is how it's listed here). Citrus fruity tones. Bitterness grows over time on the palate. Pleasant and normally very affordable for a fairly easy-to-find Japanese beer.

Bottle from Katsuragawa Aeon mall. Really pale gold with decent lacing. Spicy citrus hop aroma. Flavour is way more hoppy than I expected. Nice spiciness with a hint of sweetness.

330ml bottle from a department store in Shinjuku. Drank from the bottle. Nice aroma of stone fruit and malt. Well-balanced on the palate. Nice malt sweetness paired with hops. More hops present than usual for this style which makes it more interesting than the Ruri.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - hazy dirty yellow with a spotty head and lacing. An earthy hop taste. Light bodied and refreshing. A lot hoppier than I thought it would be.

Had this on a number occasions as it was pretty common.
Pour is clear orange-gold with white lacing.
Pretty solid amount of bitterness to this along with a fair caramel malty backbone. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Hazy amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of sticky bread crusts, nectarines, grapefruit, white pepper. Creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Sweet bread crusts, really rather fruity, with some odd tropical notes along with the citrus and white nectarines. Dries out a bit towards the end with medium bitterness. Didnít really like the tropical fruit and still feel that hops - particularly fruity ones - should be more of a garnish in things like this, but itís pleasant enough.
