Clear, light brown, good carbonation. Aroma has some toasted bread to it but the flavor is whatís interesting - itís dark spices wrapped in with a bit of citrus twang. The finish fades with malt and more spices. I think this is probably the best Japanese beer Iíve ever had. It may rank low in itís category, but itís worth seeking out and giving a try.

11-18-07 bottle. Skunky musty metallic smell with a taste that is just about the same. Clear yellow urine colored. I would rather drink a Bud Light - sue me!

Pours gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is pretty faint, but absent of skunk with some sourdough bread, corn kernals, and breadcrust. Tastes pretty flavorful with a good toast flavor and earthy grassy pilsner malt. Finishes grassy and subtly bitter with a drying effect that’s pretty welcome after the bread flavors. Medium-light bodied and certainly packing more flavor than any industro-lager out there. Pretty good but overpriced as hell!
