Bottle. Dry and crisp, little bite of bitterness, bit of citrus maybe. Finish is grainy. Tastes a bit like sweets, tooty frooties. Not bad.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2014
Can direct from the brewery via Rakuten, just 11 days old. 5.5% served in a pilsner glass. It pours a crystal clear light gold with a thick white fluffy space. Earthy, grassy, light noble hop aroma. Nice smooth moothfeel on a light body. The taste is a refreshing crisp grassy flavor with light bitterness & mild crackery malt notes. A surprisingly nice pilsner that hits all the right notes with a great finish, it’s very refreshing with bang on a proper pils profile without any one thing overshadowing another. An impressive start to this tameshi set! Then again I wasn’t expecting much...

Sweet malt aroma. Honey cereals flavor, clean finish. Simple refreshing local pils, preferred the draft version the can one.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This bubbly, crisp Pils relies on polished cereals and a lean mouthfeel to offer up a quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty golden.
-Hoppiness is too mild for my liking in the style.
-The flavor profile is generic.
-Aroma is delicate, focusing on refined pils malts.

On tap at Goodbeer Faucets.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
Small white head. Clear amber body. No real aroma. Dryish-sweet mealy fruity taste. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel, kind of flat. Dryish empty resiny mealy aftertaste with fruity notes. Bland and flat. (0.25l draft at some restaurant in Sendai, Japan.)

jonno (2520) - JAPAN - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. More Bohemian than German, this is a lovely, soft perfumey pils. A bit of honey, lemon and grass with a soft bitterness. Low carbonation. All in all a well made beer.

One litre can. Thin head that disappears quickly. Colour is clear and very light. Taste is quite neutral with light bitterness.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Grass, malt, vomit smell. Light golden colour with white head. Full body, Dry. Hint of bile. Earthy, and malt. Carbonated. I can’t get past a feeling that I just threw up when I drink it. Bitter aftertaste.

KyotoLefty (9403) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 31, 2009
Draught at the brewery. Pale, thin, in color with a fast-fading head. Sweet, malty aroma with butter. Rather light flavor—of malt and hops. Not particularly rich or satisfying but crisp and clean, light and refreshing with just a bit of fruit.
