3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
350 ml can. Pours clear and golden, small head, looking quite transparent, kind of what you’d expect from a usual pilsner. I am drinking this one rather cold, so aroma is rather limited, some barley malts, sweetish notes there too. Taste is actually quite nice for industrial brewery, good carbonation, nicely bitter and snappy. The malt is also there, few hints of honey in the taste - but not cloying. Aftertaste is short, bitter and refreshing. Not bad at all!

Herbal hops, grass. Big lasting head, sweet malt then lots of dry pine hops, mint, dry bitter finish. Very bitter herbal pils, Czech style, the best of the "Nasu no Mori" series.

fairly aggressive hops, grassy, very much like Edel Pils. The hops just sit there and linger in the mouth . By far the most bitter beer from a Japanese major.
