Kind of an underwhelming Japanese beer, though not bad by any means. Just kind of...meh. Aroma is of grass, slightly sweet and alcoholic smelling. Nice golden yellow colour, but very little head. Taste is quite bland at first, though refreshing. Lingering slight bitterness, little else. The entire problem with this beer is its blandness - there’s just little going on here. It’s not bad per se, just...well, not bad.

I thought beer has no alcohol-like smells at all... but it smells like cheap vodka. i don’t like it at all.

330 ml, bottle. Aromaty słodowe. W smaku orzeźwiające lagerowe z wyczuwalnym słodem. Odczucie w ustach lekko klejące.

ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
65 cl blikje bij de lidl geloof ik, leuk ontwerp, geel/gouden met witte kraag. Had verwacht of zo'n oost Europees graan danwel zo'n droog rijstwatertje maar t viel best mee. T blijft wat waterig uiteraard en geen superbier maar op een warme dag als vandaag was het prima te drinken.

Douberd (2089) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
650 ml can of interesting shape, as Sapporo Imported, from the local Lild, glad I picked it up as I was doubting if it was a new tick. Into a big Guinness glass, ABV 5% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, light activity in it. Tall white head, thick and soapy, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Sweet malty aroma, with clean grass and hay. Taste of malts, a bit grainy, grass. Nothing out of the ordinary on this pale lager, but it’s a clean one, without any off-flavours. Medium thin body, good carbonation, not too high. Overall an okay lager, nothing more or less, that drinks more than okay this hot humid day.
