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.

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.

Can (Nagoya). Clear golden color, small white head. Light grainy aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish corn-like maltyness. Soft palate but somewhat alcoholic or/and acidic. Basic, somewhat clean lager. For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A classic average salaryman lager, fairly tasteless and inoffensive as long as you drink it cold enough. Sad but yet drinkable...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Jana who brought it from Japan! :) Shared with ogivlado and MatSciGuy. Poured a yellow-golden body with a small white head. Kinda fizzy. Malty aroma, vaguely herbal, some alcohol notes. Creamy malty taste with a fine herbal hopiness. Lacking bitterness. Better lager than expected, but not entirely my type.
