1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned. Very pale golden colour. Big fluffy white head that dissolves into a film. Medium lacing and bubbly carbonation. Aroma rather grassy and hints of lemon. Mostly citrus in the flavour with a thin mouthfeel. Slightly metallic finish.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear golden with active fermentation and a tiny head. Malts, sweet, some citrus fruit. Is there something thinner than water? Rather tasteless...a bit sweet. One of the lessor Japanese brews out there.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A can from a 7-11 in Kyoto. Pale yellow, fizzy appearance. Palate a lot like a 7-up. In fact, this whole beer experience was something akin to drinking a 7-up. Sweeter than your average J-Macro, and a little tart. Other than the tartness, no trace of hops. Bleh.

From can. What can I say. Probably the worst beer I tasted in Japan. Chemical beer. Could shine up some chrome if you wanted to.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Funny thing about Japan--their cheap beer tastes like cheap beer.
Wait... That’s not really funny.
This stuff is actually pretty decent. It seems more similar to American macros than most Japanese macros which are somewhat more Pilsener-like and bitter.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
can (and out of the can) The best thing about this beer is the memories that it brings back. It reminds me of subway rides with the bro in Tokyo. I think its amazing that in Japan, there are no open container laws, yet we were the only people drinking in public. My favorite part is when I was drinking it among children on a playground in Shibuya. Not much to say about the beer.....it tastes exactly how you think it would.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Japan has a high per-capita suicide rate, I’m told. A popular way to do this is by jumping in front of subway cars, which causes big delays while they clean up and this is sometimes given as a reason for being late. But how can one kill themselves in a land where this fine specimen of beer is available in freaking corner stores and vending machines? Writing that was the second most evil thing I’ve done this week. Looks like champagne with a small head. Somewhat inoffensive compared with American macros. Slight taffylike sweetness in flavor. FInishes quickly.
