(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.

500ml bottle. Very much your typical pale lager with a thin looking amber body and a sudsy pure white head of foam. Straw and hay aromas with nt much happening in he flavour department.

Thisis12ptfont (836) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pleasant aroma of grain malt, caramel, subtle hops and biscuit. Appears gold with no foam. Taste is malty sweetness, creamy caramel, biscuit malt and toasted grains. Overall, very simple yet refreshing. Tastes very similar to Kirin Ichiban.

vulcanmeister (196) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours from 500ml bottle a pale golden with a creamy lasting head. Aroma is grass,rice, and a hint of honey. Taste is the same with a crisp finish. Soft body and medium carbonation. Good with sushi.

czlowiekwiadro (209) - POLAND - JUL 29, 2014
świeży zielony zapach - zioła, chmiel, słoma, trawa. odrobinę drożdży i karmelu. dość słodowy. kolor złoty, lekko zmętniony, piana obfita, dość trwała. w smaku wytrawny, ale wcale nie wodnisty. na pierwszy plan wychodzi przyjemna, średnia i mocno wyczuwalna goryczka - zioła, trawa. pozostawia ciekawy, trudny do określenia posmak. trochę jak woda po płukaniu ryżu, lekko słodki, lekko mączny. dość aksamitne i gładkie mimo wysokiego nasycenia. zdecydowanie ciekawe i warte polecenia piwo.

beerbaaron (1210) - Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2014
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.

Serge1A (1) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014 does not count
This is a good one especially for Asian food! It makes taste it better! It is truly a craft beer and very rare.

Aurelius (4125) - 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.

fajry (518) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 23, 2014
Plechovka. Zlatá farba, pena biela, ale nevyrazna. Vona sladova, kukuricna. V pozadi brokolica, alebo ina dusena zelenina. Zleeeeeeee.

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Actually a pretty insipid brew, dry and develops into nothing but tale malt and hop water.

DuffMan (6670) - 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.
