It sure goes down well, like any other Japanese pilsners. Pours pale golden. Moderate carbonation and hop. Good one, but I cannot understand why people appreciate it so much, cause to me, the body is light and just another ordinary pilsner.

Une bière marquée par les arômes de malt et d’’épices au nez, avec une bouche assez ample et onctueuse, agréable sur les sushis

Finally got around to rating this beer. A lot of memories, it used to be slightly more expensive than Asahi, Kirin or Suntory and I had it only as a special treat as a student. Thought it was the best Japanese beer. Well, now I know better :) Pours clear golden, bit of white foam, quite aggressive carbonation. Aroma has malty character, lots of sweetness and some wet cardboard. Taste is malty-artificial sweetner-sweet. A bit of bitterness at the end and a short finish. Not really the beer I thought it is when at university but well, at least it seems to have more body compared with other big industrial beers. I guess I will still drink it once in a while.

Can at Ashton McCobb’s. Pours clear gold with a head. Aromas of malt, sugar, honey. Taste is sweet, thin, malty, bit grim finish.

Last wee tasting of the summer

Can thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with an attractive fluffy head, some of which hangs around. Nose - honey or even syrup. Taste - same again, but somehow very thin too. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and it doesn’t finish clean which is definitely an issue with lager. Overall - if a lager doesn’t refresh you, it’s not doing anything.

Probably the best “Ordinary” Japanese beer you can buy. It is malty, good head retention, good body and nice hoppy aftertaste.

Drank as a draught. A very ordinary lager: there is not that much taste apart from a slight maltiness.

Manslow (422) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Kolor jasnozłoty, piany praktycznie brak. Aromat i smak jak to w lagerze, nikły, nijaki, trochę słodu, słodkawe. Nic szczególnego
