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.

350 ml can thanks to Ingo! On May 18, 2014.
As Otaru Bakusyu Pilsner.
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.

Can from a 7-11 store in the Rihga Royal Gran Okinawa Hotel in Naha, had up at the hotel room. "Czech Style Organic Beer". Clear like golden colour, medium white head. Grassy hoppy flowery aroma. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour of grassy and flowery hops, ok maltiness, medium bitterness.

maekchu (2346) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2012
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.

Ungstrup (29950) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
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.
