2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden yellow beer, small, quickly diminishing white head. Nose is paper, sweet malt. Flavor is papery malt, some grainy sweetness, finishes with herbal hops. Aftertaste reminds me of extract hops, or maybe it?s just flatly herbal bitter. Mouthfeel is nice, but the flavor is not.

Can from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A dark golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Sweet, malty aroma. Tastes similar, sweet, malty, maple syrup, slight butter taste. It is OK for a Japanese beer I suppose.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Masuyo’s in Asagaya. Poured into a tumbler. Clear golden straw yellow with a nice white head. Grassy aroma with a slight bit of malts on the nose. Medium bodied and mostly well balanced. Average carbonation with crisp finish. It’s OK for a pils.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Seiyu. Served in a lager glass. This plisner pours a clear deep gold with a thick fluffy head of foam that leaves goegeous lacing behind. The nose is hay, freshly mown grass, crackery light malts and a small hop bite. Medium bodied with a slick almost oily mouthfeel. The taste is sweeter than I like it a pilsner, sugary light malts with a dry grassy bitter hop finish. More flavorful than a macrobrew pils but too sugary for my tastes.
