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.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
Golden, thick head. Has a sweet, clean but heavy pale malt character. Not bad generic lager.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, 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.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2015
Can. A golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of straw, vitamins, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and boring hops, leading to a dry finish.
