500ml bottle. Pours straw colour with a small white head that fizzes away in seconds. Aroma is grass and malts. Sweet taste with a slightly bitter finish. I had wanted to try this for a long time, but it turned out to be quite a boring beer really.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale. Moderate aroma, light sweet malts, bit of white bread like. Uninteresting. Taste is better, very smooth and easy drinkable. Not bitter enough for me though. (50cl bottle from V&B Tours)

T: Sweet, watery, clean.
M: Very light, fuzzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Boring and yet tasty and reminiscent of past days. I love the easy drinking lyfe.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle as premium lager from Jusco on sale at 250 yen (best before 12/2014). Upon opening and serving in a lager glass it pour a very pale gold with a thin soapy white head. Alas it was lightstruck with one of the skunkiest aromas I’ve smelled in awhile(why do they use green bottles?), once you get past that you get a grainy sweet pale malt aroma with possibly a hint of residual hoppiness. On the palate it is light, sharp and crisp with a dry finish. The taste is dusty dry crackers, a bit of sweetness then a bitter skunky finish with somewhat of a sour aftertaste. It’s obviously gone off but I am guessing fresh on a hot day it would be a passable lager(probable 3-3.1).

"not bad...a good food/pizza beer, but nothing so special that it’s a treat on it’s own. clean, crisp, and well balanced...just a hair under where it rate Spaten pils...malty flavor, hop finish. refreshing."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (in Garmisch); clear gold pour with a white head; aroma of malt and hops; taste is bittersweet with malt and hops with a hint of citrus, has a light bitter finish; not bad but Spaten has better beers.
