2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Pours a thin head with low retention on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is candy corn... not good.
The taste leads with metallic bitterness followed by candy sweetness.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
Too sweet, not good.

From can in Narita, Japan. Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma of grains and hay. Taste is grains and hay, light to medium bitter. Thin mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. This beer has a hoppy character that separates it from many of the other readily available beers.

Bottle to plain glass
Our first beer on our Japanese tour. Not very excited about this one, but after 24 hours of traveling, I'll do my best. It's accompanying some sushi, so I won't complain too much.
Aroma of grains and hay and horse piss. Bright clear amber with no discern able head. The taste is disgusting; I don't have the words right now.

Faint malty aroma. Ok malty taste without unpleasant flavors. Simple and somewhat elegant. Easy to drink.

A microbrew wannabe. But not necessarily a bad thing. One of my favorites to grab from Family Mart in Taiwan when I can't get to a proper beer. A noticeable amount of hops is put in there for a large brewery. A lot better than the rest of the crap found in convenience stores here. But maybe I've lived here too long.
