Clear golden like colour, medium white head, lasting fairly well. Aroma of malt and some hoppiness. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour of malt and hops, herbal bit, some caramel sweetness, lightly fruitish hoppish in the finish.

Average crappy Japanese beer, but at least it has lots of alcohol. Last resort beer only.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from 7-11. Gentle but distinctive hop aroma (Hallertauer). Clear medium straw color, creamy white head, slowly rising small carb bubbles, good lace. Grassy, but quite sweet and pleasant initial; mid palate is soft and mildly hoppy; final goes a bit sour/bitter. Thin-medium body. Smooth and balanced. Elevated alc. is not really apparent. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Nothing much doing on the nose, but this hs nice, weighty body with a creamy caramel, toffee and some nice underpinning bitterness. Still tastes like a macro,but a most positive step in the right direction.

Nice gold with a high, fine, bubbly head. Decent nose, lemon hops, light bread, clean. Nicely hopped, with lemon and grass, and rich malts. Some grains and caramel. Nicely fruity, and good body too. Like a richer Premium Malts, with a bit of booze and good hops. I have no problem drinking this.
