Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale yellow, brief head. Fruity/ricey nose. Sweetish with plenty of green apples and rice. Well rounded light body and a tingle of alcohol. While the rice may be quite nice the green apples are not.

On tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow color. Thin, light flavor of sake yeast, with a light fruitiness, mostly green apples. Dry finish from sake yeast. Light and slightly fruity, a bit of interest from the sake yeast, but not much to offer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Weak gold with a bright white head. Intensely floral aroma, yeast, I do pick up some sake similar notes, also. Sweet malts and fruit finish the aroma. Very interesting, unlike any pale lager I’ve had. Thin body. Sweet, lightly sour, spicy, and malts. Any hops are overpowered by the malt and yeast profile. A very interesting brew. Unfortunately it is on par with other Kizakura brews- well made, but not something I’d go out of my way to find.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from local Yamaya. Yeasty, fruity aroma, with light lemon and apples. Light pale straw color, 2-3cm head. Very thin distressed winey initial; mid palaate brings some bitterness; final flattens out quickly. Thin body. Interesting aroma... but the first sip disappoints and it gets no better.
