Can, new in Japan. Pours a clear straw gold, lots of bubbles, soapy white head. Big crackery, wheat aroma, lovely bright citrus, lemon, a hint of lime and something like yuzu. Nice balanced mix of malt and hop, lemongrass, a light spice at the end. It’s insanely drinkable, gentle carbonation, clean hop finish, lingering toasty malts. Very happy to finally get my hands on this.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow with a white head. Smells a bit like a belgian pale ale, flowery perfume, sweet honey and caramel. Tastes the same, with some tropical fruit added to the mix.

Firestone has a name for making drinkable IPAs, but this makes a statement about lagers, being both hop forward and finely balanced.

Draught at Keyaki. Now that is a winner, lovely balance between malt and floral hops,super crisp, notes of lemon, lovely dry finish. Great stuff, could drink loads of it, fairly classic yet outstanding hoppy pils!

Can. Lightly hazy gold beer, thin white head. Palate is light, dry and minerally crisp. Dry pale malts, some lager character. Dry floral bitterness. Bitter citric pith. Dry and bitterish finish. Founds this a bit rough edged.

Can from Meditrina. Pure clear pale gold with lasting head and lace. Nice grassy floral hop crackery malt aroma. Wicked clean light crackery malt with grassy dry finish and without excessive lingering bitterness. Very light and lively. Nailed it.

Can. Crisp, grassy, citrusy. Ends dry. Really hoppy, yet rather true to style. Nice.

Pours a straw from a bottle, floral/citrus/tropical fruit notes in the nose, but doesn’t mesh well with the pilz crisp profile, which on its own I could see being very nice. Meh.
