2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Foodshow in Tokyu. Drank straight from the can. Aromas of sweet rice and light peach. Taste is similar. Fairly sweet, but still drinkable. I’m really not a fan of Koshihikari beers...why do I keep rating them? Because it was in a can I guess...sigh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dorada clara y limpia, de un dedo de espuma blanca y fina burbuja. Aroma escaso, herbal. En boca es eminentemente cereal pero no dulce, con amargor moderado. Seca, e insípida.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Visual: Pours golden orange with a sizeable foamy head, a 1mm layer of ultra fine retention, lots of spread out steady streams.
Nose: bright and sweet barley malts, trace (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: super crisp bite
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-gentle sweetness, (MAIN) cereal grain, faint barley malt
Finish: liquid malt adjunct sweet finish.
Summary: I’m guessing the sweetness comes from the rice. 100% a meal beer; not a whole lot of flavour but does a good job of cleansing the palate.

60cl bottle in a japanese style club in Manhattan, NY, 04.04.2015. Didn’t know this was a rice beer, felt like a lager/pilsener. Pale yellow color, clear, average white head, mild grainy aroma, light body, dry finish. Average.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Smells and tastes like an adjunct lager, possible a little light struck funk to go with it. Pale golden with musty grain aroma (rice?). Taste is more grain, export lager quality.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. And it’s a crappy and cheap export lager. It tastes stale and a little sweet with little real character to it. A bit of corn and bleh.
