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.

Grassy hops on the nose with an earthy note. Pours clear blonde with little head. Very crisp and hoppy upfront, earthy and grassy with a very bitter flavor. Very surprising! Its not bad at all.

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
> Super clean, refreshing, blossom forward light pilsner

[ Bottle ][ Sake House Encinitas ][ 12oz ][ $8 ][ Frosted Mug ][ 4/2/14 ]
>> Pours a clear, deeper golden with impressive white foam, very nice lacing and retention lets you know this one is actually hoppy. Nose delivers a very fresh, floral blossom note, pomelo. Taste is a bit bland but super clean profile with no sugar and mild hop bite that grows into fairly solid white pepper and grapefruit peel by the end of the glass that solidifies this beer as being well made, refreshing, and clearly in the right for claiming Pilsner, a style I guard with passion.

>!< Could be more assertive bitterness wise

czlowiekwiadro (196) - POLAND - MAY 19, 2014
zapach chmielowy, ziołowy, ale też lekko kwaśny. kolor złoty, lekko zmętniony, piana trwała, ale niezbyt obfita. w smaku spora, długa goryczka przypominająca pomieszanie grapefruita z ziołami, niska pełnia, lekko kwaśne.

reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
330ml bottle pours slightly hazy golden in color with a finger and a half of creamy white head which left some nice lacing on the side of the glass. Has a pleasing grainy aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is grainy with some malty sweetness and a mild hoppy bitterness. Nice carbonation and a medium body leave the palate satisfied. This is a refreshing beer that I had while camping in Washington, which may explain why I gave it a higher rating than most.

jonno (2274) - 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.

marcus (6343) - 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.

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.

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.
