2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer. Not much carbonation or head but a rather lively beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The can says this beer is imported, but it also says it was brewed and canned in Ontario, Canada. So it was technically imported but not from Japan.
Appearance: Perfectly transparent gold body with a thin fluffy white head. Not the greatest head retention or lacing.
Aroma: There is not much aroma here. I get that "lager aroma" when I open the can but nothing discernible in the glass. I won’t rate it a 1 because it doesn’t smell bad...it just doesn’t smell like anything.
Taste: Not much flavor here...a bit of a woody flavor as odd as that sounds.
Mouthfeel: There is an odd astringency in this beer, but it is very dry.
Overall: It wasn’t an enjoyable beer to drink. The can was really cool looking though...

Decent ale to have with some ramen with friends - It’s a bit lacking on flavor but not like a lot of other mass manufactured pale lagers.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle.

No outstanding aroma.
