3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I got this in a can with Japanese writing on it in Taiwan, which is odd. Also, there is an unnecessary and incorrect apostrophe in the name. Everyone needs to know this. This is a really good Pilsner type beer. It is maybe a touch sweeter than Iíd like but has a great floral hop character on par with many great Czech examples of the style. This is just a touch heavy across the palate as well which is a shame because it would otherwise be an absolutely excellent beer.

Refreshing, but below expectation. Nothing remarkable. It is overrated. Good carbonation. I donít like these kind of grainy and metal taste.

Large bottle with dinner at some small shop in Shinjuku. Pours yellow gold with large white head. Nothing remarkable but not a bad drinking beer with food at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Exaggerated floral aroma, absent palate, and taste so sweet it tries to gag.

Bottle thanks to Masaki. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a small white head. A light grainy nose. This is a simple clean lager, corn, honey, a touch of earthy malts. Mostly, clean and sweet, watery. Drinkable. Solid for what it is supposed to be.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from The Wine Emporium 030414. The first thing that you notice is how clear this beer is - hold it up and you can see straight through it. Very basic aromas and the flavour is surprisingly not sis bad as expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle in Hong Kong, 5.5%, 19 HK$. Gold color, clear, average white head. Quiet nose. Aroma is flowery hoppy, floral with a soapy tone, mild malts, hay. Taste is quite bitter for the style, finish is pretty dry. Somehow resembling a German Pilsener, clean, crisp.
