gnashville (4) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014 does not count
A bit of an interesting take on a pilsner. A nose of grassy hops and slight tropical fruit. Brilliant gold, slightly hazy body looks inviting, and comes through with some peach, earthy hops and a pleasantly crisp finish. Nice to see a beer like this from Japan. Good. Thanks to KansaiBeerLvrs for the bottle.

Tap at GJBF Osaka 2014. Fine grainy, grassy, and lightly stinky nose. Clear peach juice color. Big grass right away, Saaz-strong flavors in mid palate, along with some malt sweetness. Smooth and lightly lemony. Very crisp and clean. Solid pils.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2331) - 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.

Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 14, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Aroma: floral, corn, note of lemon, grainy malt Flavor: floral, light lemon, grainy malt and slightly earthy hops followed by understated bitterness on the finish. Comment: the initial flavors are preceded by lively carbonation after which the balanced bittering and grain malt take over. A gentle but not bland pils with some character. I had to raise the palate score to a 4 for it’s overall balance. 35pts Later Tasting: 37-38 Aroma: earthy, grain, light lemon Flavor: sweet pear, grainy malt initially and finishes with some burnt grain and a good, long bitter finish.
