Typical Japanese sushi lager cranked up a notch. I went to the local Japanese market looking for black beer and couldnít resist a bottle that said stout on it but was clearly not. Gold, sparkly, small head, aroma hoppy w. a bit of that old sour barroom smell. Flavor is bitter, metallic, hoppy, a touch sweet. Frankly, I think if youíre going to have a Japanese lager with your sushi, your better of with something lighter, as I found that the flavors didnít react well to each other.

Fizzy, yellow, adequate Japanese brew. Itís not all that different from a Sapporo. A light sushi beer.

Decent enough for a Japanese lager. Iíll give this a shot with sushi sometime and see if I like it better than Ichiban.

Golden coloured. Sweet and malty with rather low bitterness. Average.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow, light density of small particles. Aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers), moderately malty (light bread), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, lightly acidic, slightly metallic. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Without the metallic aftertaste, the Flavor score would have been a point or two higher, but still one of the better light lagers from Japan that Iíve come across.

Decent enough light lager, but I have no idea why the word ístoutí appears on the label! Nothing special.

This is the most drinkable japanese beer Iíve ever had. Well balanced, nothing overwhelming, and I could get shitty drinkin it with sushi...thatís a plus. As Daninorlando says it is definitely not a stout and for 100% malt not extremely malty.

nothing special, but to be honest, a nice lite beer with a decent after taste. The label, though, is a definite misleader because this dies not taste malty and is DEFINITELY not a stout.
