2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
grass, hay, cooked vegetables, pale, clear, light sweetness, salty, light body, astringent. Very grassy, but in a bit of a sour way unfortunately. Sweet and salty taste, not particularly pilsner-like IMO. You ever bake bread and actually add twice as much salt as you should? This is the beer version of that. Seems like somebody got the numbers wrong somewhere.

홋카이도 브루잉 컴퍼니 - 오타루 바쿠슈 필스너 5%ABV 끝에 길게 남는 편안한 단맛이 아주 좋은 필스너. 천천히 시작되는 아로마에 마일드한 홉, 담백한 맥아. 혼자 조용히 기울이기에 좋은 괜찮은 맥주

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml can from Lawson in Asagaya. Drank it straight from the can. Slightly floral aroma. Kind of all-around average. Average bitterness, average smell although a little metallic taste seemed to leach out into the finish. Nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet grain, mild floral hops. Sweet malt, dry bread, biscuit, mild honey, bittersweet finish. Not bad for a Japanese pils, kind of a lighter and sweeter version of a classic Czech pils.

Clear straw yellow color, big lasting white head. Malty, sweet, herbal, sulphur, vegetable scent. Malty, grainy, dust, vegetable taste. Dust, malty, cloyingly sweet aftertaste. Medium a bit low CO2 mouthfeel, low bitterness.
More of a Euro lager than a pilsner.

Purchased at a small grocery store called OKest in Nara. The can is nice, and the beer is organic, but the beer is not good. I drank about half a can before throwing the rest away. Maybe something bitter/metallic, or perhaps an old can?

Can (!) from Michael’s in Kyoto. Very nice. Sweet aroma and very crisp. Good balance of malts and hops. I would love to try on draught.

Straight from the can so have no idea what it looked like. Aroma is quite malty, something unusual too (maybe the can). Taste is nice, malty sweet, slight bitterness. Nothing too shocking but perfectly nice drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from the Raku Ichi chain. Hay, grass, light Pils-type hop aromas. Clear, standard straw color, gentle carbonation, no lace. Flavors of grass, mildly sweet in mid palate. Thin palate, average carbonation. The Pils character is okay but not pronounced. Drinkable stuff.
