czlowiekwiadro (676) - POLAND - APR 17, 2014
aromat chmielowy - słodki, kwiatowy, lekko winny i kanalizacyjny. jasny, słomkowy kolor, praktycznie brak piany. w smaku słodki, słodowy ale z wyraźną jak na lagery goryczką. pozostawia dziwne, śliskie odczucie w ustach. dobra alternatywa dla reszty budżetowych koncernówek w japonii.

petewhitley (519) - Nagoya, JAPAN - DEC 3, 2013
hay, grass, frothy, light sweetness, oily feel. Car-wash soapy head. Surprisingly clean tasting and robust for a happoshu. For what it’s worth the can makes it look relatively classy for this category of brew.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2013
Can from convenience store. Light sewery scent, lemon, peaches -- but the advertised Czech hops don’t come through. Clear bright straw color. Moderate and slightly rasty maltiness. Thin body. Fairly nondescript overall. However, the typically nasty happoshu flavors are not really present. This happoshu series by Sapporo is by far the "best" of any from the Japanese majors.

biirusaikou (2566) - - NOV 26, 2013
Soapy malt, grassy aroma. Sweet malt flavor, candy, mild floral/herbal hops, sweet finish. Surprisingly sweet for a "Czech hop" brew, but anyway still quite drinkable for a happoshu, an ok addition to this series by Sapporo.
