2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Zero finger head. Cloudy pale pills, unremarkable flavor. Grassy, little citrus... It is organic so you feel better drinking it but it might as well be Asahi. Get their Tokyo black instead.

Can. Poured a bright gold with a thin soapy head. Grainy aromas, but not much. Some flavours of malt, grass, and a touch of sour fruit. Good mouthfeel, but very short finishing. This tastes different every time I have it. It’s not bad-tasting, just uninspired and pretty forgettable overall.

Sweet malt. Mild cereal, grain, herbs, bitter hop finish. Pretty clean, yet boring lager.

330ml can. Crisp snow white head atop a hazy amber body. Bready malty aromas that are very inviting. Full in the mouth with a smooth easy drinking mouthfeel. Good body and well balanced.

Better than the score suggests. Fruity, grainy and a step up from your traditional macro lager. Butt ugly can though. A bit of wheat is evident too. Comes across as a fruity golden ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Fresh, grassy, slightly nutty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow, no visible carbonation, and a very slight hint of a head spread out. Grassy, pils-like flavor with a dull bitterness. Thin body, not a lot to grab onto. Pleasant enough, but could probably use a little more bittering.
