ładny, chmielowy, ziołowy zapach. dość porządna piana, złoty, przejrzysty kolor. w smaku pełne, ale z wyraźną ziołową, łodygową goryczką. jedno z fajniejszych piw szeroko dostępnych w japonii

Bottle pour in Narita, Chiba, Japan. Pours a clear straw yellow with a pillowy white head that dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing. Aroma is yeasty and grainy, stale. Taste is unspectacular, a bit sweet, a little bitter, with a bitter finish and aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel.

Grilled bread, floral hops. Roasted malt, fruity hops, orange candy, bread, bitter finish. Quite tasty and well-rounded for a major Japanese brew, likely one of the very top Kirin brews.

6% clear deep gold pourvwith a thick lfluff off-white head. Rich malty nose, creamy mouthfeel, a bit sugary but fairly malty, a bit of neutral hop bitterness to. Ok for a macro. nice palate

Straight from the bottle.
Hops and malts, but not very distinct. A little skunky, lots of bread, and wheat. A pretty standard macro lager with a bit more hops.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - From bottle - Pale malts and some mild earthy grassy hops. Clear gold with small white head. Big dark malt and bitterness with some fruit esters. Very odd, almost a medicinal liquorice flavor .

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wow, I really thought this was going to be a stout. Aroma is very sweet with some caramel. Body is golden and clear, white head. Taste is weak, even weaker than regular Japanese beers. I would not recommend this one.

Bottle with a pull top. This was pretty nice. Had a good strong nose of fragrant hops. Nice malty depth, with notes of fresh fruit and bitter toffee. Restrained carbonation. Good train drinking, rewarding yourself at the end of the day (like they tell you to do on the bottle).
