麦芽は、全てドイツ産、ホップは、チョコ産のファインアロマホップとドイツ産のアロマホップのみを使用し、華やかな香りと上品な苦味がバランスよく広がります。 仕込み方法にもこだわり、あえて手間の掛るダブルデコクション法を採用し、コクと旨みを最大限引き出します。発酵も通常よりも低温でじっくりおこない、熟成期間も通常の1.5倍の期間をもうけ丹念に仕上げます。

petewhitley (410) - Nagoya, - DEC 24, 2013
floral, vanilla, golden, hazy, frothy, medium bitterness, sticky, average carbonation, bitter. A fairly bog-standard pilsner only notable for it’s bitter finish. Certainly not worth the premium price unless you want to support a local brewery as opposed to your own wallet.

EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from a Japanese supermarket. Pours clear golden amber, medium white foam head. Nose is cereal grain, crisp lager yeast, slight fruity dry hop, light cut grass. Taste is simple and fairly standard lager with cereal grain and grain husk the domininate flavour. Crisp, little bit dry on the palate, some light grass and cereal grain on the finish.

Westkyoto77 (565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2014
Nice looking bottle. Poured a nice bright gold with a fine even head. Smelly nose of damp hay and some light hops. Palate is smooth and balanced. I got some flavours of grain, peaches and yeast. Not too shabby.

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle from Lucky Supermarket in Hirakata. Aroma has some variant of Czech hops and a bit of sewer (intentionally?) Light straw color. Slightly rough grassiness / deep bittering, grass, and some light fruit / finishes with more harsh grain and then a final sweet note. Thin body. All the pils characteristics seem overdone. Bad ingredients or a bad recipe? Never been much impressed by the beers from this brewery.

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2013
0,33 l bottle from Seijo Ishii at Nagoya station. Pours with a small white head, color is golden. Aroma is malty, some dry cardboard. Taste is quite usual pilsener taste - hop bitterness mixed with some bread. Aftertaste is interesting, it turns somewhat sweet and I can feel... glucose candy? Overall not too bad of a pilsener, representing perhaps a good average. Would I buy it again? At this price probably not.

KyotoLefty (7975) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle. Medium gold. Faint aroma of malty grains, grass. Simple. Light, clean malt flavor, nice bitterness. Simple though clean and hoppy in the North German style. Could this be the same as the Kinshachi Blue\? It has the same bitterness, though seems a bit less interesting. It is a bit better then the premium major beers, but costs more than 2 times as much and isn’t worth it.

TimE (4249) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2013
Medium golden color. Nice frothy white head. Nice Saaz hop aroma. Well balanced mouth, snappy hops, slightly astringent at first, but hops really shine in the mouth. Moderately aggressive bitter finish. Slightly creamy mouth feel. Probably Kinshachi’s best beer.
