olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Can in HK drank straight from can so no idea on appearance. Aroma is grass, straw and a little malt. Lively carbonation. Refreshing and inoffensive. Decent enough cold.Quite grassy aftertaste.

mrjez (379) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2015
L: pours a nice clear gold with a big fluffy head that goes quickly. S: a simple whiff of crackery pilsner malt. T: decent flavour. A little sweetness from the malt, good dry finish. F: light to medium-bodied, good fizz up front, lingering dryness on the throat. O: I’ve got no problem with this as an easy-drinking pils, without the metallic tinge and staleness that often comes with the macros.

maekchu (3304) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 16, 2015
Can from local Yamaya store. Small hop nose, with pronounced frutiness. Bright gold straw color. Mild grassy initial, light sweetness in mid, very gentle bittering in mid and final. Thin body, with minimal carbonation. Not the best pils around, not even in Japan in this day and age. Okay.

GenkiGonzo (988) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2014
Can from Lawson at KIX. A welcome change fro the rest of the beers on offer. Aroma has more malts than hops. Grassy hops come through a little more in flavour. Clean finish.
