3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
35 cl can from Family Mart. Cloudy hay-coloured with large frothy white head. Low aroma with bitter fruity notes, some citrus, some vegetable note. Taste is also fruity and bitter, bread in aftertaste. Nice, thick mouthfeel and high carb, but still pretty refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Maybe served too cold, a vegetable aroma. A slightly cloudy gold pour. The flavor is more peppery than I remember from the brewpub with less of the goya bitterness. A decent take on a lager & definitely something to try when you’re in Okinawa.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home. Very pale watery yellow colour. Thin white bubbly head that fades quite quickly. Aroma is grainy with a touch is something spicy and vegetable like. Some malty sweetness too. Taste is similar, couldn’t identify it as goya but there is definitely a vegetable taste, quite earthy and peppery. Little bit of lemon and grain there too but overwhelmingly vegetal. Finish is mildly bitter. An interesting concept and fairly easy to drink, but not sure I want it again.

Can. Bought in a souvenir store on the central road in Naha. Unclear golden like colour, medium white head. Strange aroma from the Goya plant: herbal and bitter along with some sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is herbal and bitter with a medium bitterness, sweet like, dry. Strangte and interesting brew with the Goya plant.
