Tinned, 500ml, at Wagamama’s Reading. Pale gold with white head. I’d forgotten this one. Thin, corny, malt lager with little hop character. Some sweetness, quite tinny, metallic. Doesn’t really appeal.

Didn’t know what to expect from a Japanese pilsener, but apperantly nothing. Just a regular pilsener, like so so many others.

Bottle. Rice and grain in the aroma. Almost neutral flavor, maybe a hint of hopbitterness in the aftertaste, but don’t expect too much of it. Clean and boring.

Pale yellow with a small, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. A slight hint of fruit and hops in the aroma. Starts out very slightly sweet then turns bitter. Dry on the end.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2010 canned - clear pale blond colour with a little head retention; aroma of rice and nothing else; the palate is gently oily and it has a moderate malt backbone, quite sweet and with a shy bitterness; notes of malt and rice in the finish

24 ounce can. Pours a clear golden color with a large billowy
head, decent head retention and lacing. Very rice-like, sweet
aroma with some very grassy, almost metallic hops. Taste is tart
and bitter malts along with bitter hops. Sort of a gummy bear
fruitiness is in there too. Clearly rice is used in large
quantities here. Medium bodied.
