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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Can, Kin Mugi means "Golden Barley". Clear golden colour, medoum fairly well lasting white head. Mild malty aroma with grassy hops. Ok mouthfeel. The flavour is mild with some bitter hops, light sweetness and some maltiness. Dry finish.

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...

While drinkable enough for a daisan, its still skunky to both your mouth and nose.
