omhper (22766) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy straw colour, rich head. Grassy nose. Dry and soft with light body. More soft and edgeless than crisp, so in combnation with low hop rate it apears more as a dry helles. Finishes with fairly low bitterness.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Captivating grassy hops branch out into a long, spicy, herbal finish, whilst honeyed cereals and hay sculpt an impressively healthy mouthfeel. Another high quality lager from Fujizakura!

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the clear pale golden.
-Some citrusy fruitiness roams within.
-The nose is hoppier and hoppier every time I smell it; it was served a little colder than it should have been...
-Balanced, flavorful, drinkable, well structured; what more do you want from a Pilsener?

KyotoLefty (8859) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2008 Sparkling, clear, pilsener. Fragrant with hops and decent malt character as well. Some fruit, citrus. Good balance and tons of hops from nose to finish. Probably the best pilsener in Japan. Easy to drink and you never tire of it.

TimE (4773) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2005
Horrible sour nose, sour malty body. I am thinking this is going no where. Then a wonderful well balanced fruity hopped finish with some bitterness. Odd beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4187) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from the introductory tameshi set on rakuten. Another solidly made beer from Fujizakura. Clear gold, thin head, light body with a grassy earthy flavor from the hops/malts & a crisp mildly bitter finish. A solid pils but it’s not my favorite style. Like all of their core line very well executed. If you want a light beer in Japan this is much better than the macrobrews. Rated from memory, I’ll grab another soon & re-rate it.
