3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought in a Takoyaki restaurant in Osaka. Solid lager. Great for hot days. Not as distinctive as Ichiban and indeed not as complex a lager. To me it is a watered down version of it. Frothy head and typical colouring. Taste is very like Ichiban but without the extra bitter malt finish that you get with its brother. Very crisp though...it’s just a shame you can’t buy it in Taiwan.

It tastes very artificial or should I say “engineered”. It’s tastier than Asahi. It has good body and big froth. The beer must be really cold to enjoy this beer, which at the same time cover up unpleasant bitterness(what kind of hop do they use ?).

Bottled. Pours very pale yellow color, like well hydrated urine. Aroma is sweet apple, sort of like a wet cardboard Aroma. Very sweet. Flavor is much better than the aroma. Light crisp flavor bit of caramel malt sweetness. Slight slight slight hop undertones.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
