330 ml bottle from Hakone. This beer should have been brewed from the hot-spring water, some vanadium seems to have set into the bottom of the bottle. Pours like a whit homebrew - light yellow, hazy, almost no head, completely flat. Aroma is faint and if anything has some herbal yeast, not that much anything else. Taste has some yeast, spices and herbal character. Bit of carbonation and only very limited amount of malt. No hops. No aftertaste. Drinks pretty much like water. Actually I expected worse, I could even finish this one.
