Cold piss smell... Overly sweet malt, then some dirty straw, unpleasant sour-sweet finish. A hangover superstar, not my cup of tea nor my pint of beer...

Sip from my mate’s. Thin and watery, with a bit of maltiness but not really, and some chemical tastes. Not much body to speak of. Maybe a touch of hops. Gross.

Kin Mugi has been a great success in Japan in terms of overall sales since it’s release. I find it a nice autumn/winter low malt standard. Good hop delivery and nice appearance when mugged. The head is short lived as with all low malt beers. Not so good in the summer...has a bit of heaviness, in flavors and dryness. A great week end beer very affordable for autumn / winter.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2012
Can@Home. Pale grainy unappealing lager. Almost no head, disappearing quickly. Drain pour.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Can. Pours a clear pale yellow, very bubbly. Yeasty aroma, with malt. Taste is very sharp, of bready yeast, malt, grass. Lingering sharpness. Drinkable, but that’s it.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 26, 2012
Can. Typical pissy happoshu spirits nose. Gold color with weird slow bubbles rising, as if through olive oil. Harsh chemi-grass initial; mid palate adds very little; final is a thin coating of blah... Thin-medium body, with some sharp gassy tongue bites. Pretty bad. Why do I keep trying these lousy excuses for beer? It’s not as if any are good; just that some are less worse than others.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAR 18, 2012
You know for happoshu it ain’t bad. Thinish, malt driven pale with a soft bitter finish. Decent approximation of Super dry for nearly half the price. Wouldn’t drink myself, but you could do a lot worse.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2011
Can pulling out of Namba Ocat, Osaka, The Japans. Shiny blue tin with gold piping. Sour malt, slight waxiness, boiled corn aroma. Clean and anonymous with a dominant Butterkist note despite the rich malt claims; traces of lemon and wet dough. ’Enjoy rich taste in relaxing time’ indeed.
