visionthing (4666) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2016
35cl can from Yours Livi, Hiroshima. Pours golden with a modest, white head. Mild malty aroma with hints of fruits, grass and metal. Moderate to medium sweet with mild flavours and a light, but noticeable bitterness. Pretty standard pale lager without much flavour or bitterness to speak of.

Can in Tokyo Palace Hotel minibar. Golden straw body with medium lasting head. Nose is eggy, malty. Taste is standard lager with malts, wheat and some citrus bursts. Nice and enjoyable beer.

Yamato (39) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2015
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.

Ysok02 (833) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2015
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.

allmyvinyl (9157) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2015
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
