Can- the autumn 2011 version, with Bambi on the back. Quite why I ended up bringing this one home Iíve no idea. Brilliant with occasional beads of fizz and a thin white head. Decent grass and honey nose with some boiled corn. OK flavour with honeyed cereal, paper and weak grassy/lemon notes. Sweet and grainy with a hint of pine. Wonít be rushing back to Japan for another can but itís a very drinkable pale lager with some grassy hop about it and nothing that offends.

Iím gunna have to do some research on this new catergory (whatever it might be). Massive fizzy white and piss yellow in the body; doing its level best to look the pale ale part. Flavours feel well underdone and almost stale; I wonder whatís driving this. Either way not very enjoyable and in no way does it ever stray from the pale lager formula.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 23, 2010
Can 350 ml
Aroma aromatic , grainy nose with slightest sourness . Gentle hint of aromatic hops that grow to present nice clean hop oriented nose.7-
Appearance crystal clear , deep gold with frisky white , long lasting top.
Taste/Body/Palate medium bodied ,oily edges with soft grainy body. Mineral watery sides. Less hop shown here than in aroma. Fairly low carbonation. Lacking craft feel yet still fairly decent.

Rating this as a non-beer, I actually found this to be one of the more agreeable dai-sans, and even better than some of the real beers. It actually has a reasonable amount of fresh tasting hop flavor over your normal light tasting brew, easy to drink and not too strong that it overpowers light fare.

KyotoLefty (6581) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2009
Iíve caved in and gone for my first "Third Category Beer" rating. Oh no! Draught at McGloughlinís. Pale gold color with a fine head. Sweet malty aroma with corn and adjuncts and just a touch of grassy hop. Sweet flavor. Corny, syrupy sweet, with a slight bit of citrus hops. Drinkable and cheap as hell but not particularly nice.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Favorite of the japanese beers form night one in japan. Poured a golden yellow, small head. Nose was rich of barley, not much hop, slightly floral and earthy. Taste is grainy, decent mouthfeel, earthy hops, slight sweetness, hearty.

The wife brought this baby back from Japan and it came in a small gold can. Poured the expected pale carbonated gold with a quickly receding head. Aroma was a nice surprise, as it had a hint of sweetness to the point where I expected something perhaps along the lines of a German Weisse. Of course it just ended up being a lager, but a slightly hoppy one with a slightly sharp and metallic aftertaste. Not sure what the angle with this beer is, after happoshu, but itís pretty standard Japanese-lager fare. Nothing to write home about, but on a night out in Tokyo Iím sure I could pound back plenty of this while karakokeing at some tiny bar until 6am.
