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.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.

Can. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw as well as lighter notes of flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as lighter notes of minerals, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks Theis for sharing.
