3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden amber, brief white head. Nose is weak ans malty, slight sweetness. Flavor is sturdier than the nose would have you belive, but it’s pretty lagery sweet malt, herbal hops, toasty notes. Lingering herbal hops. Not a bad quaffer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
333ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn)
Pale amber, brief head. Fairly simple lagery aroma, not that expressive at all. Watery palate, but fuller than typical macro fare, but a bit dead on the tongue. Pleasant carbonation brings some life to it when swallowing. Simple light grains, some herbal and bitter hops. Finish gently drying with the bittering hops, herbal, but not losing touch with its grains.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 333ml bottle on 21/7/2015 (labelled India Pale Lager). Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a small head. The aroma is light and fruity, with a hint of spice. Take a sip and there’s some bready and biscuity malt, sweet citrus fruit, and a moderate spicy bitterness. Has a fullish body and average carbonation. Pretty good, if not quite hitting the bullseye. But I wouldn’t complain if I had to down another.

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.
