Cantabrian (944) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 20, 2013
Not bad, within the context of Japanese lagers for the masses. No aroma, but nice, crisp and bitter. Justifiably a pilsener, as the label says.

Westkyoto77 (561) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2013
On tap at the brewery tour. Far, far better than from a can. Thick creamy head, delicate carbonation. Light to medium mouthfeel, but much stronger and more balanced flavours than most Japanese macros. Malt is strong but nit overpowering. Nice citrus notes. My favorite mainstream Japanese beer.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2013
Canned, bought at a local store in Seoul, Korea. Shared with Wim and Yves. Golden blond coloured beer with a small white head and a sweeter light malty hinted aroma. Medium to light palate. Finish is sweeter pilsener malty. Rather ok actually for a lager, but nothing to special.

pappaushi (13) - JAPAN - JAN 29, 2013
A 100% malt beer and rather expensive.Thatís due to Japanís taxing of Barley malt! Donít get me started on this insane issue!! This beer is known for itís smooth rich taste and yes it does taste good. A very light hop delivery and a head that is sadly very short lived maybe worse than some low malt competitors. Some taverns offer a discount with a purchase of a pitcher. I give it a thumbs up on taste alone...but not real exciting.

TripleX (5) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 9, 2012 does not count
Pour medium yellow with a big white head. Traces of malt aroma. Noticeable malt taste. Lots of carbonation. Not bad as a mass produced lager. But cannot compare with a decent craft beer.

Inferno2010 (7) - CHINA - NOV 23, 2012 does not count
Found at the local Family Mart. Probably one of the better beers to buy in China. Extremely cheap. Not sure why itís labeled as Premium because itís still very low on the tast factor. Suitable for crushing....
