Draught at Keyaki 2014. Average lager with average apple juice... Quite light and unimpressive, more of a souvenir/gift beer. KansaiBeerLvrs (5501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 5, 2014
A 500ml bottle picked up at Beer Keyaki for just 500 yen! A good price, served in a footed pilsner glass it pours a clear light gold with a thick foamy head that looks creamy and leaves nice lacing behind. The nose is more apple juice than apple. A zesty light body with a sharp carbonation, a touch watery. The taste is apple and then crackery light malts, well balanced but I’d prefer more apple flavor. This looks better than my apple lager homebrew but I think mine had a better mouthfeel and more apple flavor. Decent beer though. This one didn’t have any noticeable off flavors.

Bottled at 2012 GJBF Osaka. Cloudy, pastel gold, fine head. Nice apple nose, cider-like, not so complex but pleasant. Flavor is sweet, slightly buttery, apple, bready. Too much diacetyl.
