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.

mile (3453) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2011
Bottle. Golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty-grainy sweetish aroma, some bread. Body is medium, malty-grainy and sweetish flavor, some bread, faint grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some bread, faint grassy hoopyness. Not really pils, more like not so good lager.

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle, gift from LarsGa, thanks!. Very pale beer. Somewhat stale hoppy aroma. Flavour is like a Balkan lager, they have found the recipe, but they’re not wuite able to make it right. The hops are a bit off, there is a hint of cardboard. But it’s almost there, it is perfectly acceptable to drink, but the flavour is not crisp and clean enough.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2010
330 ml bottle. Pale golden and crystal clear. Some large chunky floaties at the bottom of the bottle. Papery and clean malt aroma. Oily and rich malty flavours and a relatively thick mouthfeel. Some hop bitterness, but nicely balanced with the malt sweetness. Reminds me a little of a helles bock, but only a little lighter. Very drinkable, except that it leans somewhat towards the sweet side.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear medium dark yellow with minimal head. Taste has a hint of hoppy bitterness, and a dry finish. This one gets an "meh" from me.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2009
Thick yellow body, bubbily white head. Nose was straw, some floral hops, and butter. Taste was grass, sweet butter cookie, citrus, lemon finish. Palate is crisp but not really refreshing at all. Not my kind of pilsner, too malty and complex.

KyotoLefty (7874) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle from Yamaoka. Buttery pale malt, slightly fruity, a touch of hop aroma. Medium malt flavor, decent hop bitterness with a bit of honey, citrus, some corn. Decently made, refreshing pils. Not great.

rallison (116) - USA - DEC 5, 2008
Some nice qualities in this pilsener - relatively dry finish, crisp, focused. Unfortunately, the malts are a bit grainy and there is a distinct corn-like component. Smell is too medicinal. The aforementioned positives are right in line for this being good...the other things really need some working on.
