Bottle. Aroma of white bread and rice. Flavor is white rice. Light body, although a bit more filling than expected. Easy drinking, but not much character.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a clear pale golden amber colour with a two- to three-finger white foamy head that retained OK then diminished to a thin white bubble collar. Laced poorly of suds spots. Aroma subtly of grain and malt. Taste of light sweet malt with no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth, light, crisp, clean, a bit sweet but overall a bit bland. Nothing special but not offensive.

22oz bottle at Shige. Pours a pale straw color without any head. Typical pale lager but a little more malt. Goes well with the sushi.

Straight from the bottle at a gig. Surprisingly ok. Tastes better than I would have expected. Decent creaminess, bit of indistinct fruitiness, quite refreshing. Maybe I’ve found my new macro. Dunno what it looks like. Can’t really smell it, will probably give me a hangover, but tastes alright.

I like the artwork. To me tasted similar to Asahi with a little more oomph. More malt and hops, but not considerable. It was soft, no off flavors but didn’t pair with my ramen at all. Maybe a little italic.

0,35 ml can. Pours with a large white head that is gone after a few seconds. This beer is very clear, definitely filtered. Not much carbonation. Aroma is faint cookies, with some sweet undertones - probably coming from rice and cornstarch. I can already guess that this is going to be quite watery. Taste is not usual Japanese macro that I actually expected but somewhat milder and softer, with some malt (or rice) sweetness dominating in the aftertaste. Aftertaste itself is pretty short, nothing really special. Drinkable but not too good, I guess it would be nice to have it on a hot beach.

Bottle picked up at New World Birkenhead Auckland. Overall a decent drop not missing any marks for an average easy to drink beer. Sweet, slightly grassy, light bodied and not too carbonated.
