Sweet, floral and yeasts in both taste and smell. Maybe a little caramel in flavor too. Light bitterness that fills the front part of the mouth for a moment. OK beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Vile scum, smells like decay so bad that it literally gags you. Tastes just like it smells. Avoid at all costs!

Can from Natural Lawson. Drank straight from the can. Slight aromas of orange and wheat. Citrus, wheat and coriander are noticeable tastes. Light but a little too carbonated for me. Peppery finish. Drinkable when only macro options are available for sure.

jinroh (1022) - ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2015
350 ml can. Pours pale, whitish with a nice head that even stays a bit. Aroma has some wheat, banana and coriander. Pretty authentic for a happoshu. Taste has also some coriander and a bit a orange peels even. Light bodied, snappy and drinks well. Not great in any way but well done for a beer that is actually no beer.

Found this fella in Osaka (canned). Pleasant aroma like toasty, citrus, hay. Looks rather standard (pale, golden). Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Overall a pretty satisfying (or at least satisfactory) brew.

Can in Okinawa. Straw gold. Bubbly. Some decent head. Strong yeasty nose. Super mild Belgian yeast quality. A bit watery.

Can bought in Kimuraya, Kagurazaka. Seems to me people are getting a bit carried away with this one. Yes Sapporo are making a non-pissy lager. However, it’s not that good. Pours a lager looking pale yellow with a big foam white head. Nose is coriander, citrous lemon, slight creaminess, cereal grain malt. Taste is somewhere between a lager and a Belgian Whit. Sort of half-way house. Creamy, citrous, lots of coriander, quite a lot of cereal grain malt which is unusual, lager like crisp hop bite, bit of citrous, maybe some orange peel. There’s a bit of a tang which feels a bit artificial. Kind of a lager metallic tang. Better than the average Japanese macro, bit still not adventurous enough.

Best tasting happoshu currently available. Hopefully full time not seasonal. Got my 6-pack that came with bonus almonds to snack on
