3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Yamaichi. Malty, caramel, very grassy, sour cabbage notes too. Very pretty russet/amber color. Light caramel, some sour tang and roughness in mid, and nice hop tinges in final. Thin body. Okay. Extremely grassy and full of flavor. A lager that goes a bit too far, maybe. The sourness kinds of detracts from the overall experience.

I agree with Scott, I don’t get why the rating is so low... maybe they had it on tap??? Anyways, I like these guys, solid everyday beers at reasonable prices. About 400 yen, 4.5% bottle from Rakuten. It’s a lovely amber gold color, thick head and a mildly fruity aroma. Great flavor! The malts are balanced by some fruitiness and a dry finish. A beer that shows what a lager should be. I liked it. For a lager it is quite good.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma is grass and bready malt. Flavor is the same with some orange citrus notes. Thin, watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a golden color with a large head. Nose is metallic and grainy. Taste is flat, tasteless and outright undrinkable. A selection from a craft club, unfinisihable.

Bottle, Beer of the Month Club. Clear dark amber with a minimal white head. Lagerish aroma: Some orange, some grain, some wet grass and faint caramel. Orange bitterness but rather soft. Light body, fairly carbonated, soft, bitter finish. OK.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grainy, honey, grassy flavors. Alright beer, not bad for a micro lager.
