anstei (2248) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Beautiful amber & copper color. Very drinkable indeed, with a rather malty palate and taste, almost a bit dusty. Still a very good amber lager though! PhillyCraft (7227) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Stoked to see a sessionable beer on at the Festival especially some lager beer. Clearish golden with medium white head. Notes of light bubblegum hop, caramel malt, corn, and clean grain. Nice lager maekchu (3911) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, yeast, and a bready maltiness. Hazy dull light amber/brown, fat fluffy head. Generous fruitiness, bready, light caramel. Gets rather sweet in mid palate. I don’t get any of the citrus notes that others have mentioned. Seems more ale-like than lager.
Tasty stuff. Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with average frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with hints of mandarine and orange, a grass, spicy touch of hay, husky, malty background. Taste is grassy and malty, husky, spicy hints of hay, a floral hoppy touch as well; slightly watery. Very drinkable, nice "naturalness", fresh mown lawn with some spared flowers and herbs.

Tap at Bashamichi tap room. Golden pour with a head that dissipated quickly. Herb, citrus, grass. Soft light body and very light finish. Easy to drink.

A nice crisp and clean pour. with a slight haze. hints of floral and herbal notes floral by a grassy citrusy taste. it really starts great for a lager, but the finish lets it down, it just doesn’t really exist. Mark_Eck (1949) - - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber color. Aroma and taste are grassy, some herbs, and lightly bitter. willisread (3342) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2015
On tap at Naka-meguro taproom. Golden straw color with a nice soapy head. Aromas of peach, fig and melon with hints of floral. Taste is more of the same with bready malts pairing with the hops. Clean and crisp and lightly sweet on the palate. Light to medium body. Nice and refreshing finish. Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Baird Harajuku, Tokyo. Hazy amber shade. Frothy white head. Quite bready, crisp and dry. Hop notes show themselves in a lightly citrus, floral and resinous shape. I think this is fine but I’d like the malts to shine a little more.
