2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, 158 yen from Yamaya served in a half-pint glass. It pours a pale light gold with a huge fizzy white head that leaves decent lacing. Too pale in color for me. A soapy, herbal & grassy aroma. Light-medium body oily mouthfeel, with a sweet, sugary, grain, soapy taste at first which then finishes on a slightly bitter finish. Am not a fan of that soapy flavor.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Extremely pale yellow with a coarse frothy head. Light citrussy aroma of bugger-all matched by the flimsy bugger-all flavour.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well, you can’t knock this one on appearance. A mushroom of white lifts up a good inch from the rim of the glass and holds there, needing a palette knife to remove it. Highly effervescent it dances in the glass; a shimmering yellow gold in colour. Sweaty armpit nose, rather dank and uninviting with a hint of metal shards, cabbage broth and stagnant water. A much cleaner offering flavour-wise. Light, dusty malt mid-palate with a grainy sweetness to the front and a weedy, peppery hop finish. Soapy in mouthfeel but featherweight so no real harm there. Ends crisp and clean with a lasting bitterness on the tongue. Balanced, light and refreshing, but not exactly a characterful number. Not too shabby! (50cL can, BB 05/10/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 5/10/2014. 500ml can. Poured a clear pale yellow colour with a two- to three-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly to become a thin film over the beer surface. Laced OK. Carbonation low with medium to large bubbles. Aroma slightly earthy malt but no hops. Taste of sweet grainy malt followed by a light tingling hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp, sweet with a slightly bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Good-looking toffee-coloured body. Slightly skunky hops in the nose also some sourness, bread, and wet cardboard. Bit too much fizz, but on the whole pretty pleasant. Outstanding value. May put it on the emergency list.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from bottle. A crisp lager. Refreshing for hot weather. Taste isn't all that special, some slightly skunky European hops and mild malt. Basically a thirst quencher.

25CL bottle at home, Clear golden beer with a white head, aroma is strong, can’’t find what it is. Taste really soft, nothing harsh in bitterness or like that, It’’s drinkable, especially for the 40 cent’’s i paid for the bottle.
