UPDATED: APR 9, 2018 9/4/2018. Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours slightly hazy dark gold with a small off-white head. Aroma of hop, fruit, herb, pine and flowers. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Sweet finish. So so. ANZUShophunter (817) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2018
From bottle (BB Aug'18) in footed pilsner. Pours clear deep gold with 1cm frothy white head and citrus/floral hop aroma with a touch of honey. Zesty on the palate with lingering pilsner-style bitterness. Heidbummer (1155) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2018
Draft, Osaka craft beer market. Big malty aroma, pours deep gold, dense head. A very very good lager, ramped up with complex sweet malt and dry hop tastes. Really good. Psytron (2710) - 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. BlackHaddock (8200) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2017
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. adamnowek (3782) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2017
Clear. Deep golden colour. Moderately-sized head. Aroma is grape and flowers. Taste is grass and a tiny bit of citrus. Extremely bitter. JorgeLee (2373) - 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. gyllenbock (10418) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2017
On tap at Coedo, Hong Kong. Golden with a white head. Quite mild with hops, citrus, some grass and light bread. Medium bitter finish.
