Mellow hop aroma is the characteristic of this English-style ale. The bitterness of dry bitter hops, plus aromatic hops and ale yeast create a fruity, aromatic harmony. Ingredients: water, barley malt, wheat malt, hops, yeast.

Clear, copper colour. Thick and lively white head. Very metallic aroma, a little bit of malts. Neutral taste at first, then turns into slightly bitter and sour (?) finish. Watery mouthfeel... Disappointed all over, this one screams convenience store can beer. Still better grab some of the regular beers which are cheaper and better than this one.

Can from daiei in himonya. Drank straight from the can on the commute home. Light grain aromas with a bit of fruity esters on the nose. Taste of bread and malt with a slight sweet taste. Some fruit as it warms up. Lively carbonation and light body. Crisp and dry finish with a little peppery spike. Not bad.

Pours beautiful golden with a nice top, has lively carbonation. Aroma is soft and very malty. Bread. Taste is also rather soft, has more body than usual macro lagers, although bittering hops feel better. Aftertaste is short and dry. Overall not really very exciting beer but tastes OK and is definitely better than your usual Asahi or Kirin. Good beer when it’s cold and the day is hot outside.

czlowiekwiadro (462) - POLAND - MAY 2, 2014
ładny zapach, drożdże, chmiel i owoce (morele?). złoty kolor ze średnią, ale długotrwałą pianą. w smaku dość pełne, drożdżowe, gładkie, z wyraźną ale nie za mocną ziołową goryczką.

Westkyoto77 (565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2013
Can. Pretty strawberry-blond. Strawberries in the flavour too, along with apples, soap, grass and sweet malt. Light body, fairly heavily carbonated. More interesting and flavourful than most macro lagers, but not really balanced.

Malt aroma. Honey malt flavor, mild fruity hop, bittersweet finish. Not a memorable one, just darker and maltier than your usual industrial blond.
