Drank a 2014 version, bought at the Hokkaido store by Tokyo station. Not as sweet as the regular version, a little easier to drink.

Can. Fresh noble hop nose, citrus (lemon), grass, light clean malts. Not overwhelmingly fragrant, but slightly better than usual. Rather pale golden color with a low, fine head. Malty and sweet, light grains, lemon, grass. A good bit of bitterness in the finish. Somewhat creamy and soapy in a bad way. Very soft and soapy body. Ok. Nice hoppiness.
