Light amber color. Lots of butter popcorn and fruit but very malty. I think it is well made but wish there was more hops and had more body. Not my favorite

Very very Clean finish. You can pound in the summer. A bit too malty for a Pilsner :(

On tap at CBM Koenji. Hazy amber with a modest off-white head. Huge malt aromas with caramel, toffee and a slight bubblegum presence on the nose. Taste is more of the same. Sweet with a hint of saltiness. Great breadiness and sweetness with the hops taking a backseat to the malt. Really cool lager.

Tap at JBC. Nice. Salt, caramel, high on malt. Aroma is kind of earthy. Brown bread. Good stuff.

On tap at the GJBF as the Okunoto Legend Lager. 5% a lovely amber lager. These guys are lager experts. A crystal clear glowing amber brown. Bready malts, good caramel. The taste is luscious and sweet, bready light malts. Deliciously light malts. Subtle goodness.

Draft to tulip I get soy and caramel. Reddish amber, nice effervescence with a thin creamy white head. The taste is wheat, limestone, a little citrus, and hoppy.

maekchu (3304) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Draught at Qbrick. Extremely fruity nose, plums, and wine-like note. Very dark straw, near amber color. Some umami hits immediately, morphs into fishy flavors, and then a nicely bitter finish. Very nice. Just a touch of harshness. Very full-bodied stuff, with mature flavors. Ale-like, really.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Draught at the brewpub. Medium amber-orange color. Interesting aroma of crackers, salt, a bit of caramel, plus a strange fruitiness. Light caramel sweetness with apricots and salt-minerals. Light, interesting and tasty. The deep sea water adds a strange and original mineral character.
