Malt richness and light, refreshing hops are the characteristics of this light-colored, bottom-fermented beer. Enjoy its refreshing taste.

Tap at True Brew in Mito. Seems they have started making this again, possibly only for True Brew though, as it is tied to them. Golden colour, big off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, lots of grass, graininess, bit of lemon. Taste is similar, quite a bit of bitterness. Not what i was expecting, but good. Finish is quite earthy. Doesn’t feel like a pils but I like it.

New version, out in Sept. 2008. Got the bottle from Yamaoka in Kyoto. Decent malt aroma with big, not quite huge, hopping, strong cereal character, quite a bit of citrus and some butter. Slightly darkish golden color with tons of bubbles and a huge frothy head. Really looks nice. Strong hop flavor, with good golden malt backing it up. Just slightly buttery, strong citrus fruit, lots of biscuits and cereals. Extremely bitter hop finish. Malt almost rich enough to handle the hops. Very nice, medium mouth feel. Very good, and it got better as the glass went down and it opened up: the citrusy hops just kicked in.
