As a gout sufferer, this stuff keeps me in check. Seem to guzzle it faster than most beers. Not so widely available in the Tokyo combini’s however once sourced it’s on the table daily. It’s a haposhu (fake no hop beer) therefore its cheap. Don’t really drink from glasses in summer, prefer to keep it wrapped in a holder. Overall the low sugar and purine work well together to make a mellow flaqvor.

World Liquor Nakai can. Pretty bland overall. Not offensive but nothing to hunt down. Honesty when I read "double" on the can I was hoping for a malt liquor tick.

Another Kirin lager variant... thin on the palate, flatter and maybe a tad more acidic then the norm. Anyway it’s low on purines, which should be good for your health (purines are a source of uric acid).

Consistent with all the other comments. This is a beer for beginners. What a total waste of money. Couldn’t pour it down the drain fast enough.

Pours a standard golden clear.
Nose is a watery caramel, floral hops.
Taste Is mimicking an american pilsner. Tastes similar to bud with less of that corn flavor, slight bitterness with medium pils body.
