COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Translated from the Japanese on the can) We’ve used the delicious water and Koshihikari rice that Niigata’s nature has provided and made this in a German-style decoction mash. This is a dry beer with a crisp palate and finish.

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.

Pale golden. Small white head. Not much to the aroma. Grain. Light honey sweetness. Some corn. Flavor fairs a little better. Pleasant sweetness with some character. Light and easy drinking. Not bad.

Aurelius (4053) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Light, honey tea aroma. Exotic label. Misty, pale pale yellow with no head. Sweet, dilute honey flavor, no bitterness, light vanilla. Undercarbonated, watery, limp, thin body. Thanks to an anonymous Ratebeerian, from his/her stash, downstairs at Proof.

Plechovka. Zlatá farba, pena biela, ale nevyrazna. Vona sladova, kukuricna. V pozadi brokolica, alebo ina dusena zelenina. Zleeeeeeee.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Actually a pretty insipid brew, dry and develops into nothing but tale malt and hop water.

DuffMan (6531) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Slightly any yellow body. Aroma and flavour of cooked rice with a hint of grassy hops. Papery finish. Not as bad as I expected, but not that good.
