Only in Hokkaido you say? Score! Pretty clean, has a very touch of hop spice, not much bitterness. Basic, well-made for an industrial lager.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tin, 500ml in a Chinese Restaurant in York. Yellow gold with fizzed white head. Firstly its great to seek out an unexpected rating, it takes the edge off even bad beer, and this is bad. Corny with wet cardboard notes, super cold to cut through the hot spices. Time and place I suppose.

Golden colour with a steady white head. Quite some taste to it, despite my initial scepticism. A nice hoppy feel and still quite malty taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brewed in Hokkaido, and only available here. An all-malt lager. Light golden color, usual. A nice, full-malt, slightly sweet aroma. Fruity with decent hops in there. Very fruity, slightly sweet, full malt flavor, with decent hops. Pretty nice tasting beer. Better malt flavor and fruitier than Ebisu, with less hops than it has, but still ok. It is reminiscent of Sapporo Black label, but lighter, hoppier, and with the a full malt taste. Not bad at all for a regular ¥207.

Can brought from Hokkaido, Japan by a friend. The beer says it is only available in Hokkaido, but others seem to have got it in the US. Either way, it’s a decent lager; smooth and crisp. Drinkable, but not amazing. Glad I had it, thank you Masaki San.

Can. Not much aroma. Pale yellow, collapsing head. Actually ok mouthfeel, sparkly and chewy, grassy hops on straw malt. Quite ok.
