bottle in osaka. an ordinary macro lager with nothing remarkable at all I can write about. I like the label.

evergreen0199 (2276) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Can from Lawson, Ibaraki, Japan. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Vague grassy, fruity aroma. Tastes similar, grassy, fruity, metallic. Forgettable Jp lager.

Drink it near frozen on a hot Japanese summer’s day and it’ll work wonders. But so would most lagers. I do like the label, though.

willisread (531) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2015
Can from Family Mart. Sweet on the palate with a slight graininess present. Corn, rice and grains are noticeable tastes. Typically bland pale Japanese lager but better than Asahi and Ebisu for sure.

yenbeer (110) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2015
Perfectly drinkable but boring. Rather weak on the aroma and palate, and especially the coloring.

jdjuice (403) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 3, 2014
Probably my least favorite of the big brand Japanese macros. Is pretty heavy for what it is, but is heavily carbonated and not smooth. No aromatic hops, and a carbonic acid sourness that’s rather unpleasant.

bbertels (180) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours strawcoloured, firm head, good carbonation. Not much aroma but a nice, refreshing taste of discreet hops and malts. OK.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

Headbanger (3491) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes-Under supervision by Molson)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not as bad as I was expecting.
