Sweet malt aroma. Pear flavor, cereals. Can’t expect too much from a pilsner, still quite a smooth and refreshing one.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Tap at Keyaki fest. Golden colour. Aroma is wheaty, not massive amount else, but decent. Taste is pretty good, wheaty, light hoppiness, good dry finish. Touch of fruit too, almost tropical. Apricot maybe. Pretty good. Getting more into pilsners I think.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 14, 2013
Botella at a family Golden Week gathering. Golden colour, nice medium white ehad. Aroma: malt with fruitish hops, pleasant. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is fresh with malt and fruity hips, light citrus in the finish. Nice bitterness!

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Draught at Qbrick. Light grassiness, cookies, flour. Golden straw color with a very creamy head. Rich, sweet malt, with some decent bittering. Thin-medium body. Solid pils. Maybe a touch too sweet.

thebeertourist (4648) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2009
On tap at the brewpub, Sapporo. Clear golden with a creamy little head. Rather neutral malts aroma. Some toffee and balanced by just enough bitterness. A bit hard on the tongue. No lasting impression.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2008
Draught at the brewpub, Nov 2007. Slightly amber color. Very fine, 2cm head. Looks great. Malty aroma with good hops and a bit of citrus. Very fruity, slightly buttery flavor. Some citrus. Good, full malt. Hops light but noticeable. Citrus fruit and hop finish, semi-dry. Very nice.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 A malty brew that doesn’t even managed to have a well supported backbone and lacks hops. Goes nowhere quick. Above is 2008 rating. Now in 2014 it is much more improved. Decent backbone, sufficient hops, fairly well integrated beer with some nice toasty malt notes. Really enjoyable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Draft @ Brewpub: Golden color with a tall proud white head. The nose is fresh and snappy with lots of noble hops and bright biscuity malts. A full malty backbone in the flavor and mouthfeel and a tight bitterness round out the flavor department. Clean finish but a long tail with a drawn out doughy character with a hoppy exclamation point at the end.
