2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild malty red fruit aroma. Sweet malt flavor, berries, some hops, bitter/sour finish. Not mindblowing, but at least this happoshu series is quite tasty and hoppy for a change.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Yamaya. Light sweetish malt, roasted grain, dark fruit, and a soucon of piss. Brownish-amber, thin head, and big carb bubbling up. Roast malt candyish flavor and a off flavor sort of bitterness (not like hops). Not really terrible. Somehow the roastiness covers the normal roughness and crude character of that most happoshu has.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Aromas of toffee apple, spice, malt in there too. Crisp enough, with decent bitterness, but still too sweet as well. Good body for its class of faux-beer, but underwhelming nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lata. Nice deep golden colour, amber actually, clear. Malty aroma, caramel, bit fruit. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant malt caramel flavour with bit fruit, pleasant medium hoppiness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Amber orange, high, very fine head, clear. Caramel malt nose, lightly fruity, with cherry and apple, sugary element. Not a real Vienna nose. Sweet and sugary flavor, no real caramel, but brown sugar, a bit of burnt grain, candied fruit. Not so good. Nicely bitter finish, though. Not very good.
