COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coedo's beer is brewed from selected malts and hops with the technique of beer artisan, braumeister.

With the stark contrast of its clear golden hues and fluffy pure white head, this premium pilsener boasts a crisp refreshing taste. The name "Ruri" is Japanese for the gemstone Lapis, representing the pure clarity this beer abounds in.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Can from Ueno station. Fairly standard pilsner. At least it isn’t bland and boring; decent body to it. Not bad but nothing amazing. Fine.

hoju777 (151) - FRANCE - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle from Grand epicerie. Smells strong, but with an ’Alsatian’ funk. Yellow but opaque (that’s weird). Watery but with burnt caramel. Smokey burnt caramel. Very interesting!

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle from Davis Co-op. Pours golden with a huge off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a slightly sweet pilsner malt flavor with a little banana ester and a bitter finish. Refreshing.

Can. Hop aroma, slight citrus tang. Light carbonation, semi-dry mouthfeel. Much more bitter than I had expected, but not too shabby overall.

GoufCustom (843) - HONG KONG - MAR 26, 2013


330ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long; Golden colour; Less than half finger head and white foam which last for 1 minute; Small but sticky lacing with notable carbonation; Potent smell of malt, meaty yeast, corn syrup and faint grass; Light sweet taste of malt, earthy yeast with strong liquorices, bitter lime and sharp grassy hops; Mid to light body, thin but slick palate. Taste profile is initially medium note of minimally-sweet, strong lager malt, followed by stronger earthy meaty yeast, all wrapped around in a true-to-form Classic German Pils level potent hops bitterness and astringency, with lively liquorices, bitter limes (lemon is notably absent) and grass that quite impressive to the tastebuds. Pretty dry after taste, crisp and bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one holds several surprises: looks like an Urquell, smells like a macro, yeasty mouth feel reminds me of some good hefeweiss, and hoppiness is truly German Pils. Its aroma is a let down but everything else works out just fine. Bitter, rustic, and enjoyable in a simple way. A gem for German Pils lovers.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - FEB 20, 2013
Well made beer with good head retention. Quite hoppy for the style and not at all grassy, more fruity undertones. A lemon aspect also runs through the body. Having said all that it’s a bit non descript, though would be good in a pinch, as it’s readily available.

trapped (824) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pale yellow slightly hazy appearance with very small foamy white head, flat, bitter taste, roasty aroma, bitter finish. Did not like it very much.
