Psytron (2564) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2018
Bottle, BBE 3.11.2017. Smell of malt, syrup, some citrus. Amber colour, white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, also grass, hops, malt. Syrup and spruce in finish. Also alcohol, which is a bit of a surprise. Fizzy but short carbon. Sweet with some bitterness. Decent, but it's more of an imperial IPA to its flavour than a lager. Not sure what to think of it.

Bottle - malty nose - this is far above any lager I’ve had as the malt level is quite high (even more so than German lagers) - healthy amount of floral hops elevated it further IMHO - moderate bitterness a bit swamped by the sweet malt - I like this ale and more with every mouthful - well made - good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Une bière jaune orangé, très claire, avec une mousse aérée qui tient bien. L'amertume est agréable en bouche. J'avais des craintes en la versant mais au final j'ai découvert u e bière appréciable.

333ml bottle, cheers Shirley for bringing this back from Japan for me. Poured into a large Leffe chalice at home on 27th Nov 2017. Golden body, clean and clear, on top a full white blanket of bubbles. This is one of the most bitter tasting Lager's I have ever had, India style or otherwise. Aroma gives no indication of the hop bitterness that follows, in fact the nose had a malty front if anything. I liked it actually, good depth of flavour for a Lager.

JorgeLee (2280) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle, Shoryu Ramen. Rich golden colour, Smallish white head. Full malty beer, sweet grain, with a spicy and slightly fruity hop feel. Surprisingly hoppy, especially to taste, medium bitterness. Actually not bad.

josanguapo (2047) - SPAIN - OCT 20, 2017
From Hiper Oriente. In Teku glass. Playing Space Pilgrim Episode 4. Plenty of sweet caramel notes, light tropical notes and adequate bitterness level. Low carbonated feel, smooth but not watery. Very drinkable

tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2017
350ml can @ Tokyo. Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma of grassy hops, bready malts, hay and citrus. Taste is crisp and citrusy with some grass, hay and earthiness. Finish is crisp, grassy and hoppy with some herbal notes, pine and hay. Okay hoppy lager.

333cl embossed bottle. Its a pretty boring ipl, some spice and vinous, not really invigorating.
