Bottle shared with McTapps. Maybe this one is just a simple lager but one that helped me through my meal and had some aromas of grains and malt. Drinkable and easy. Sometimes that´s just enough.

14/II/15 - 50cl can @ RBBWG IV (Beerlover_Ben’s place) - BB: 13/VI/15 (2015-183) Thanks to ElManana for sharing the can!

Clear pale yellowish beer, small irregular white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: grains, stable, cow fodder, watery, pretty dirty. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very malty, grains, sweet, corn flakes, little bitter. Aftertaste: hoppy touch, very grainy, malts, unpleasant, bit dirty.

Thirsty? This one fits. Linger for some taste? Forget about it! They talk about an irresitible perfectly balanced taste. Well, nothing wrong with that statement - the little taste is balanced and suits everybody as no one will find negative taste notes. Hope somebody will find any taste notes... This Japanese beer? Give me a Saké!

Erzengel (4516) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2015
Brewed under licence in the EU, 4.7%. Malty fresh beginning. Easy to drink, slightly grainy sweetish, not much body. The aftertaste is thin, grainy-sweetish, only hints of bitterness, not to deep. A bit artificial, but there is according to the ingredients no corn inside...

Fľaša. Zlatá fara, biela pena. Vôňa sladká, kukuričná, jemne chmel. Telo prázdnejšie, sladké, v pozadí veľmi ľahká horkosť. Pivo nič moc.

Uma cerveja normal, mas ainda melhor que o padrăo Brasileiro, refrescante e um pouco mais amarga que as convencionais.

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.

teromous (114) - - FEB 17, 2015
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.
