3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Produced Jan '01: A deep gold in color with a short lived beige head. Light sweet aroma, crystal malts?? A mild sweetness with an oaky middle, some hop bitterness lingers, but not for too long. This is much better than most of the Japanese macro lagers I've had. A rare treat and a pleasant surprise to find on my recent "Beer raid" to Hachinohe City. Look for this one!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, abv unknown, probably 500 ml. Thin, bubbely, mostely lasting white head. Brilliant pale golden body. Light sweet grain aroma, notes of grassy/hayish hops. Taste has a certain level of crispness; light sourish-sweet bready grains, with a gentle hopbitterness. Body is light plus. Fine bitterness in the finish. Beyond most of the European industrial lagers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, strange looking and it says 62 cl on the side. Large rocky white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Flat looking body with a yellow color. Aroma of hay, straw, mild dusty flower. Over the palate came fresh grass and again straw like notes. Light bodied with a soft carbonation and dry texture. Light bitter flavor with some counter sweetness. Dry and bitter grassy finish. Properly the best bottled beer in Tunisia.
