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.

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).

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Soapy, mild lemon grass. Very fizzy, light maltiness, grain, lemon, dirty watery finish. Quite empty apart from some weird artificial lemonish flavor, feels chemical overall like most other low-sugar happoshu.
