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.

Can 33 cl. Pours yellow with a vague haze and a lacing white head. Dusty, dry aroma - not entirely sure of what. Medium body, extremely dry and cardboardish. Has an astringent, bitter finish - not necessarily of hops. Oddball. 220214

Mild fruity, hoppy floral aroma. Fruity malt, mild apple, then can feel the bitter goya, dry bitter finish. Starts ok with decent fruitiness but the goya twist quickly gets too overwhelming and dries the palate.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
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.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2013
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.
