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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Gonpachi Nishiazabu, Tokyo. Light lager colour. A fairly anonymous industrial lager, went down ok and not unpeasant but I can’t think of the first thing to say about it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
w zapachu wyraźne nuty chmielowe (ziołowy) do tego lekkie jabłko i siarka. kolor jasnego złota, piana dość mierna. w smaku wyraźna ziołowa goryczka, dość pełne, pozostawia lekki kukurydziany posmak. całkiem dobry stosunek ceny do jakości.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to a friend that brought it back from Japan. Clear gold with a fizzy white, disappearing head. Smells of simple and stale malt, corn, grass and straw. Tastes of sweet malt, corn, grain, wheat and straw. Basically like a bag of grain with some dry grass finish

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 @ Dean’s 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 aroma’s. Medium sweet flavor, not so good...
