Eh I guess this is better than the other Japanese macro lagers but it’s still nothing special. Very light flavors and aromas of grains and malts.

The taste and the aroma is malty and bread. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Okay beer but still only a lager beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Not as good as its varied sister flavors, this one at least shines a bit from the more expensive ingredients supposedly used.

This beer is all macro advertising smoke and mirrors. It’s pushed as the premium choice for macro beer drinkers and is priced higher than the others because of this fact. Well it tastes the same as the other Japanese macros: boring, malty, grainy, no balance.

BuckeyeBoy (3177) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 25, 2015
A 6 pack thanks to Nagashima-san. Can pours out a golden amber topped with a white head. Nose is honey sweetness wheat grain and heavy malts. Taste is lots more of the sweetness grainy malts and a touch on bitterness on the end. Not so bad.

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
500ml bottle into pint glass. Distant hoppy nose. Pale amber beer with rapidly diminishing head. Taste is clean with toasted malt/Weetbix finish which lingers. Not the greatest.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2014
Clear golden colour with thin white head. Faint malty aroma with a hint of earthy mint. Thin bodied with fairly high carbonation. Clean tasting. Mint again with a touch of spiciness and bitterness on the tongue. A clear lager with some subtle differences.

Can. Clear straw yellow. Belgian lace. Odd, sweet hop nose. Bright body. Really strange sweet quality. Not great.

A decent lager. A little more depth and bitterness than most European offerings. Not bad.

This is an actual beer, this first I’ve had after around 7 tinnies in Japan. You can tell too, although that doesn’t necessarily make it any better than a happosei. Nothing much to note about the flavour, it’s a bit malty, bit grainy, but a tad metallic.
