Bottle from Tokyu bottle shop in front of Sapporo station. Pours a clear gold with a nice white head. Nose is light floral with some grain ad grassy hops. Taste is more if the same. Great balance. Light pepper on the finish with a bit of stone fruit as it warms.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
