Pours a light golden color. Smell is of grains, some sweetness. Taste is mild, light grains and malts. Overall a mediocre beer.

Light straw grain aroma. Faint whiff of spice I can’t nail down. Crystal clear straw yellow body. Very little if any head to start or finish. Mild bitterness gives way to sweet corn finish. Finish is clean.

Franzen (355) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2014
Mild floral and citrus aroma. Bitterness is a bit metallic and some more maltiness is needed to give balance to the bitterness. It is dry and light but could have done with more carbonation.

Brilliant straw colour with thick persistent white head. Faint herbal aroma. Thin bodied. Quite dry. Slightly grainy taste. Clean. Looks better than it tastes.

La lager japonaise à la meilleure rondeur à mon goût et de celles que je connais, ce qui reste limité en soi.

Golden color with a small white head. Taste and aroma of hops. Medium body. Not that impressive.

- Alcoholpercentage van 4,9% - Biertje gedronken destijds dat me niet kon bekoren - Kan me veel lekkerder biertjes voorstellen, maar kan met mijn smaakvoorstelling te maken hebben - Vandaar mijn lage beoordeling ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2014
(Bottle, Wagamama, Amsterdam, 22 Aug 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, neutral nose with notes of bread, rice and cereal. Malty, clean taste with cereal, bread, rice and a dry finish with low bitterness. Rather thin and dry. Flawless, but quite boring.

From bottle. Golden colour. Extremely average lager. Nothing wrong with it. Sort of makes sense in a Japanese restaurant.
