2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Looks nice when poured well, and is marketed as a quality gourmet lager, but really is still a bit behind in that particular area. Musty hops noticeable, crisp body. Nice enough with good food, but doesn't really stand on its own too well.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Deanís Birthday tasting. Green bottle, why?? Pours a clear yellow beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Huge skunky aroma which really dominates the other aromaís. Medium sweet flavor, not so good...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Deanís Birthday tasting, August 2013. Poured a clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is stale malt. The flavour is weak bitter with bags of malt. An average lager. Not the best and not the worst either.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer reminds me of Sleemanís in terms of taste and packaging. It seems to be mid-way between craft and macro. A good lager, crisp, clean and slightly hoppy. Itís about 300 yen for a 500 ml and is the best of the macrobrews in Japan in my opinion.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Kirin bar in Tokyo. Came in a footed pilsener glass, showing its clear amber body and tight white head. Couldnít detect much in the way of aroma. The taste was light malt with a more pronounced hoppy note over the top. Crisp finish. Pretty standard lager really.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Strong pils hopping from the get go. The aroma diminished somewhat within a few minutes. Clear pale yellow with fine carbonation. Well-balanced initial, slightly metallic in mid palate, with a bit of a sweet finish. Medium body. A very drinkable lager, maltier than most, from a Japanese major.
