Bottle from Hoser’s trip. Thin froth and delicate lace on Amber. Grain aroma. Full grain flavour. Nice hopping. Decent for watching sumo or Japanese World Series.

My 368th beer from Michael Jackson’s Good Beer Guide. A good pilsner is a hard thing to do, although the pub had 2 other solid beers on tap, I went back to this 3 times. Herbal, balanced slightly towards hops and crisp, could drink this all day long.

Bottle. Okay grassy nose, slight corn note. Hazy light straw color. Light sweet malty initial / mild hopping and some grainy touches, too. Okay. Small malt stuff. The hopping doesn’t really add much.

Tap at Beer Horn. Golden colour, crazy horn glass, white bubbly head. Aroma is grainy, floury. Taste is decent, refreshing, good graininess, light creamy sweetness, nice. I was a bit toasted at this stage, but liked it.

Tap at the horn. This is the kind of beer that a bottle wouldn’t do justice to. Great mouthfeel - soft but brisk bittering. Well nuanced and very drinkable. Top pils.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Draught at the brewery tap in Sapporo. Golden color with a tall, foamy head. Big bubbles. Aroma of fruit and hops. Full malt flavor. Light, clean flavor. Good hops. Very tasty, round, and slightly buttery. Dry, hoppy finish. Excellent. Great hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Otaru taproom under TV Tower in Sapporo: Golden color, fluffy white head, the nose is perfumey with some light noble hops and a touch of rice and malt. The flavor is a bit thin, with some light toasty notes in the tail and a thin tinny mouthfeel. Not the best pilsner I’ve had here in Hokkaido, but certainly above par.
