3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pretty middling craft lager. Has a nice, bready backbone and a surprising sweetness that lingers, but lacks assertiveness on the hop front.

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. Grainy malt and lactic aroma. Amber with a moderate off-white head. Grainy malt, lactic sour, and light bitter flavor. Not really all that pleasant. Light body and carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Crescent Moon. Pours a dark straw color with a medium bright white head. This might have been Storz reborn, except that it lacks the corn and has an unexpected dry hopping finish. Not a smooth beer, but definitely has a manly grainy flavor. Mild citrus tartness is an undercurrent. A good tailgate beer I suppose.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you don’t see many pre-pro lagers out there. Pours a gold with stiff white head. Nose is vegetal, cabbage and maize. Some faint herbal hop notes come through, but the DMS is a bit offputting. On tasting, it’s a bit cleaner, but still vegetal with maize being a driving component. Bitterness works but the hops that they are proud of seems really restrained. I dunno, maybe a bad batch?

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold body that has a slight haze to it. Average sized whitye head that falls quickly.
Light malt aroma, sweet corn and faint hops.
A watery palate delivers a brew with little flavor. Some sourness. Effervescent.
