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.

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...

Can from Elmanana. @ RBBWG 2015. Many thanks! Pale yellow. Corn and rice. Light sweet, metallic. Not very good.

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. A sweet grainy aroma. The clear golden beer has a small white head. No outstanding aroma. Medium carbonated.
