2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Summer happoshu, allegedly using apollo/cascade hops. Mild tropical aroma/flavor with a grassy aftertaste. Light and refreshing, but feels more like a hoppy Perrier rather than an actual beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from Lawson. Sharp, sewage-soaked cardboardy nose. Thin, hazy apple juice color, small head. Tart, harsh fruit / fades into mild sauerkraut / finish is a typical happoshu dusting of light sugary sweetness. Thin body. Nothing special abut this one. A total waste of the Apollo and Cascade hops, which really aren’t detectable.
