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.

Thank you jmgreenuk. 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Clear pale golden, little white head. Nose is mellow sweet paper, bread, sugar, neutral. Taste is dull cereal, sugar, rice, sugar, bland, neutral no bad notes. Quite bland, boring, hollow. Given that this is a German styled lager made with rice, this is pretty decent for what it is even it isn’t all that good.

jmgreenuk (7683) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle at the pre-Borefts tasting, Den Haag, 2016. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is grainy mineral light hop. The flavour is light bitter with a light mineral, light fruit, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel.
