1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
i did note dry--overall, a bit buttery in the palate with plain popcorn taste; yeaup...actually, inoffensive and if i had to choose a few among many japanese macros to drink, this would be one of them; clean without a prick; interestingly, the head becomes rocky and leaves some chaotic lacing...

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours very crappy and dissapointingly. Pale yellow with a fizzy worthless head that dissapears quickly. Not much aroma here and what little I did get was skunky and boozy. Taste is pretty hoppy and bitter. In fact much more so than I expected, all malts and sweetness are masked by the hops. The hop profile sucks though all bittering hops and nothing for the aroma. This stuff isn’t that great.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: Pours a clear gold, no head or lacing, very fizzy and dissapointing appearance like the other japanese beers I’ve had so far. The nose is thin and dry, some light malts and a pleasant lightly hopped tail. The flavor is thin, dry, a hint of malts. Relatively unappetizing and nearly devoid of flavor. Bravo.
