TimE (3353) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Med golden color, frothy white head. Peaches and flowery nose. Mildly hoppy and ultra smooth mouth with hop flowers really making their presence. The finish not overly bitter like a Pilsner (though it would be an insult to call this a pale lager), but enough for a lager (25-30 IBU??). A bit more ommph at the end would have helped this beer. Re-rate. This puppy has dramatically improved in last several years, with lots of herbal hoppiness going on these day, over a dry malty backbone. Really nice take on a Czech lager. 3.7 for new beer. Old rating of 3.3, so blending the two.

KyotoLefty (6704) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2008
Draught at the Beer Belly in Osaka. A fantastically fruity, rich, and hoppy lager. Very similar to the best Austrian Spezial types: rich malt character, good body, perfectly balanced with great hops, some butter. Light and refreshing. Satisfying and fantastic. One of the best lagers I have had in Japan.

Bottle from trade with TimE. My notes say "Miyazaki Hideji Beer," but I remember the word lager on the bottle, so this is my closest guess. Best by 8/15/2008. Yellow with huge frothy, large bubble head. Aroma of corn and a little skunk (probably from Saaz hops and not being light struck). Lots of early boil hop bitterness. Not smooth, and a little harsh. Low hop flavor. Not unlike Bud.
