2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from convenience store. Strong cardboard and glue. Very bright, sparkling gold straw color. Thick, strange chemical and cardboardy confluence. Thin-medium body. Not the worst of happoshu brews. Has more body and flavor than most. Label says it contains Czech fine aroma hops, but they aren’t really evident at all.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
March 2nd, 2011 - A happosei to break the mold, this daisan offers flavor where there usually isn’t, and removes the calories where they are usually found. Clear and yellow, like a cider, with lots of loose and large bubbles and little head, one gets the impression (if they haven’t already been able to read the label) that this is decidedly not a brew. The aroma is faint and corny, and reminds me of the exceedingly light lagers of the Caribbean. But the taste is better, featuring a substantive palate, even if the taste is predictably thin, bitter and calloused. It’s better than most of Japan’s thin, watered down beers, but worse than anything outside that category. If you’re on a diet and need something to match with your meal, or just something to cool down with as you take in a Japanese drama, this might fit the bill.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lata. Clear golden colour, medium creamy white head. Surprisingly malty like aroma and something hoppish. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour: Milder than aroma, maltish mild and more herbal likehoppiness. Hardly any bitterness. Not much deep taste here.... but drinkable.
