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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Canned(350ml). -Brought by a friend from Tokyo. Who would say that I’ll be the first one to rate some Japanese beer!!! Yellow coloured, soapy white head that went away fast, no carbonation at all. Weak, weak nose; just tiny touch of malt. Totally tasteless with subdued notes of something (corn maybe). Short finish.
You don’t drink every day a new beer from Japan, so I think I was too generous with this one.
