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.

0,35 l can. I have had some Coede beers before, probably also this one - but somehow they have felt quite ordinary. This time did proper tasting with aroma glass :) This is supposed to be "Japanese style pilsener". Considering that al major brews in Japan are pilseners, it would be difficult to stand out for this one. Appearance is nice though, yellowish pale, with dissipating top. Aroma is the biggest surprise - it is actually very nice, somewhat sweet with some mango and banana. Taste is smooth, some soft fruit tones give way for mouth-filling bitterness. Not too much of hop aromas / tastes flying around but you can definitely feel some hop bitterness. Aftertaste is quite classic, dry, some remaining bitterness. Overall nice pilsener - although in these days I am more into "bigger" beers, this is a nice take on the style.

Light caramel malt aroma. Sweet roasted malt, some hops, bitter finish. Overall a bit too bland, but not that bad for a German-ish pils.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 29.06.2013, 0,3l bottle @ Hakkasan NY:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, light malts, rice, caramel, hay, hints of hops. Taste is slightly dry, light malts, hops, hay, caramel, hints of grass. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Actually pretty nice for being a Japanese pilsner.

Bottle received chilled from the brewery. I was pleasantly surprised by this. Quite tasty, strong floral notes which make this quite a unique pils.

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.

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!

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.
