3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from convenience store. Smooth powdery sweetness, and very nice aroma hopping. Medium straw color, fluffy white head. Initial is grassy and balanced / good, sharp hopping in mid palate / final features light but persistent bitterness. Medium body and very smooth feeling. A solid pils. This is about as good as lagers come in cans (in Japan).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Canned. Clear pale golden, rich airy head. Fruity nose with honey and god amounts of grassy, spicy hops. Dryish and rather light bodied, fruity and really grainy with growing late bitterness. Thirst quenching.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 At least they are trying. Would be a good summer beer. Slightly heavy for a pilsner (obviously in the german style). Has an above average taste and smell. Would be good as I said earlier, in the warmer weather. Along with Yebisu and premium malts this completes the trilogy of my favourite macro beers

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Three years after the debut in mainland Japan, the beer gods have brought this to beer deprived Okinawa! Grassy scent with some hop spice, has a nice balance, crisp, biscuit sweetness with a lingering bitter follow. I’m not a huge fan of the style but this is pretty good overall and considering where it is from and by whom it is made, it is very good!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear standard watery gold with a sudsy pillow atop the glass. Yeast and bread on the nose. Mouthfeel is clean, malty, well rounded. Finish is bitter, peppery, slight bit of lemon, and high and dry. Kind of interesting.
