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.

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

Bottle in Tokyo. Golden body with medium head. Nose is very skunky, funky. Taste is eggy, pilseneresque, malty. Prickly texture. Some sour notes in the finish. Quite a funky pilsener.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
A hazed golden pils with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, grassy mineral malt with light German hops, light mineral notes, so-so. In mouth, a light German pils with light hops, light mineral notes, rather pedestrian. On tap at Coedo Hong Kong.

On tap in Tokyo 14 Beer Hall. Bright golden colour. Long lasting white foam. Soft mouthfeel. Sweetish, not that bitter. Slightly fruity. An ok lager, seems to be well marketed in Japan.

330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Gold brief head. Super starchy aroma. Is this van pur, definitely a super starchy polish macro. Taste copybook, palate ditto, metallic finish ditto. Total cookie cutter eastern european macro lager. Van pur all over.

Marduk (4503) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pale yellow color. Tiny size, beige head, disappears. Malty, starchy, minerals, dirty cloth in aroma. Malty, slightly grainy, hops in taste. Tingly hops in aftertaste. Bland and watery. Pretty meh. Not nasty at least. Neutral brew.

joet (2440) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Dim golden relatively still with little foam. Under attenuated sweet. Round sugar affected feel. Herbal earthy hops. Solid bittering. Good.

suurjuust (2039) - ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2015
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.

martjoobolut (1924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2015

evergreen0199 (2582) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
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.
