2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
17oz bottle pour, small beer glass. Pale yellow color, with little head, but lots of carbonation. Dry, crisp lager, paired great with sushi, and sriracha spice. No lingering bitterness like other Japanese premium beers.

Bottle courtesy of Andy, split in the apartment. Light gold pour, no lacing, big fizzy head quickly receding. Light grain and floral nose, basic pale lager taste but no foul notes and no aftertaste. Crisp and clean tasting. Cool beans.

Good beer with sushi. I was recommended this with dinner and enjoyed it. Was intrigued to find out how much rice was in the grain bill of this brew.

This reminded me of a really smooth mass distribution american lager..A little better quality than the mass produced with a very nice mouth feel.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy and a bit corny with some grass. Thin. Taste is more pleasant than the aroma, and is slightly sweet with little bitterness but quite dry at the end so what bitterness there is lingers. There’s hay and perfumed rice and it’s all quite clean. Looks awful and the first sniff was pants, but really not bad at all after that.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from local Yamaya store. Light malty sweetness in the nose. Color is fairly standard yellow, has steady streams of fat slowly rising bubbles. Grassy, some cardboard flavors in mid palate, and touch of mild bitternes in the finish. Thin and crisp, light with the added rice, and gassy. Okay, not really so interesting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle from Mitsuwa market. Pours a pale gold color with a small fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The aroma is corn-like with some salt and citrus. The flavor is similar to the nose with cereal malts, sugar, light citrus and a bit of salt and pepper. The palate is light but appropriate for the style. The finish is short and sweet. Overall: Not too bad for a pale lager, I’d drink this over a bud any day.
