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 Iíve found my new macro. Dunno what it looks like. Canít 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 didnít 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.
