Bottled at Christchurch, NZ. Clear Pale golden colour. Quite awfull taste, acid and malty. Maybe too old bottle?

maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2012
Can from local supermarket (Izumiya). This is the re-launched version, with deep blue lettering on the can. Soft malt with grassy pils aroma and mild touch of hops. Clear straw color. Persistent, lively carbonation with a constant quarter-inch of foam.Light bready flavor, salt & sugar, Very smooth transition to a light bitter final. Thin body with light carbonation. One of the better mass market macro lagers in Japan -- more body, aroma, and flavors than most have. I wonder about the punctuation in the name: "Maltís" = malt is? or malt was? or malt has (something)?...

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Bottle at 37 Curry in Tokyo. Deepish yellow colour, relatively full bodied, malty and a bit sweet, short finish. Not great but one of the better Japanese macro brews Iíve had. Rerate on tap in Ippudo, Tokyo. Fresher, actually had a nice bitter hop finish.

EdKing (1756) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Can on JAL flight 402 from Heathrow to Tokyo. Colour is clear amber, with a little tinge of orangeness. Nose is strong straw, dry grass, and grainy sweetness. Taste is grain malt sweetness, touch of metallic and a crisp lager bitter tang.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Can (rated Apr 2008). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a hint of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Aromatic, flavorful, balanced, clean. Very good example of a lowly pale lager...I think I actually drank the whole can. After having this and the regular Maltís, plus a bunch of other macro Japanese lagers from Sapporo, Asahi, and Kirin, it would seem Suntory is the best of the swilliní breweries.

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Yellow body, white head. Aroma of malty alcohol and almond. Flavour has intense alcohol almondyness. Hints of citrus, but just a little bit.
