12 oz bottle. Poured a clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Taste of rice adjunct, very subtle toasted malt with a slight stringency. Well carbonated, thin body.

hauxe (291) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
Rated from old notes. Pours from a can that looks like a mortar shell. No head at all. A foul smell greets the nose, unfortunately not better described in the notes. Very low carbonation and flat near the end. Body is thin and light, taste is grainy and rather bland but not altogether unpleasant. Best had cold and with food.

Bottle in Japanese restaurant. I would rate it as an above-average lager, better than the other Japanese lagers I’ve tried because of slightly lower carbonation and a bit more texture. Drank it after an Asahi and thought it was much better. Still, obviously don’t expect fireworks...

Teran (258) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAR 24, 2016
UPDATED: APR 6, 2016 Another good lager form Japan. Lager is really the worst type of beer, but obviously not if it comes from Japan. Enjoyable and without bad aftertaste which is a trade mark for Lager beers. Perfect with variety of food, even sushi goes well.

İlk içtiğimde bozuk olduğunu sandığım, aromasının neredeyse olmadığı, köpüğünün sizi hangi ara terkettiğini anlayamadığınız tuhaf bir bira. Rengi çok hoş olan damakta su tadı bırakan bira. Sonra içtiğim 23 tanesinde de aynı hisleri yaşadım.

Found a can in the fridge after a gathering of friends in mine. Pours a clear golden with practically no head. Aroma is sour citrus and bread. Taste is citrusy and bread as well, not much else going on. The beer isn’t great but it comes in a really cool and extremely solid can! I think it may be made of steel.

• Aroma (9/10): Miel, caramelos, salsa de soya y leves toques citricos. Residuo ahumado Un aroma muy agradable sin ser exagerado en su potencia. • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escasa, blanca de moderada duración dejando una nata que cubre la superficie. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Amarillo dorado. Presencia de gordas burbujas. Sin partículas visibles • Sabor 7/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: Inicio ligeramente amargo. o Final: Ligera amargura que se disuelve en un dulzor ligero que se incrementa en los diantes. Como de ralladuras de piel de naranja. Sorprendentemente, hay abundantes umamis en los dientes. El final es prolongado. • Paladar 4/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo robusto, cremoso, moderadamente burbujeante. Final ligeramente amarga y de corta duración. Resumen 17/20: Un Sabor muy balanceado, sin ser complejo pero tampoco simple. Una cerveza no tan refrescante pero si digna de saborearse. Los toques dulces están bien atinados sin llegar a empalagar. Buena chela.

Can from Tesco. Fairly light pour, head gone before too long. Hint of grain and rice in the background but some pleasant sweetness and easy drinking enough. Decent pale lager.

On tap at a Japanese restaurant. Yellow pour with a white head. Light malt, corn and biscuit in the taste and aroma. Pretty run-of-the-mill pale lager
