Cantabrian (971) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 18, 2016
Honestly, I cannot see much of a difference on these Japanese pale lagers with different labels. Tastes and looks and smells like the vast majority of dry beers from Japan. A different look for a different niche, but with the same content in the bottle. This one has a particular late bitterness, rather metallic, which is nothing to be excited about. And it lacks the qilin on the label, making it even more boring.

mrjez (356) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2015
L: it pours nicely, a clear pale gold with carbonation and a white fluffy finger that sticks around. S: nothing much, rice, cereal, light biscuit. T: bland, inoffensive lager, nothing stands out. F: light and easy drinking. O: totally forgettable, just works as a means to have a beer with food or a quick refresher.

BeergeekKorea (107) - SOUTH KOREA - AUG 5, 2015
Aroma: Wet hop Appearance: Thick yellow colour and creamy head Taste: Just malts Palate: Light body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, and short bitter finish Overall: Draft at the Beer Pub Camden in Tokyo. Balanced, but not special at all

GenkiGonzo (963) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2015
Draught at Ikura-san’s. Pale gold with good lacing. Grainy aroma, very light. Not much hops, but fine on a hot, humid day.

willisread (2041) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2015
Very light grain on the nose. Tastes of cardboard and grass. Slightly sweet. Tastes like a typical Japanese macro swill but more expensive. Green bottle skunkiness as it warms. Not good.

Sevenlee (1711) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a clear yellow with white head. Aroma is malt, cardboard and some grass. Taste is malty with a clean finish. OK.

Pretty standard major brewer lager material. Worth swapping in place of a more common label, but hardly much more distinguishable.

Something distinguishable from the mass market japanese beers sold alongside it in the supermarket, tastes like Grolsch.

TBone (15634) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle at restaurant, Osaka. Golden color, small steady white head. Sweet malty, a bit cardboardish aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. A harsh malty flavor. A bit papery taste with light fruity note. Quite typical macro beer.
