KyotoLefty (9847) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2008
Draught at the Beer Belly in Osaka. A fantastically fruity, rich, and hoppy lager. Very similar to the best Austrian Spezial types: rich malt character, good body, perfectly balanced with great hops, some butter. Light and refreshing. Satisfying and fantastic. One of the best lagers I have had in Japan.

Tap in El Nubinchimon, Yokohama, care of TimE. Hazy amber with a medium white head. Nose is sherberty, sweetish with grainy notes and some sweet and sour tones. Taste is crisp hop bitter with a slightly sour sweetness, which is very refined and delicate.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Peppery, spicy hops gather citrusy buds to play around soft grounds and a few haystacks.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty blond.
-The finish could have been more bitter. The chosen hops were endearing enough ; I would have liked them better expressed.
-This is the kind of brew you need a couple of pints of to get to know better.
-Everything is nicely subtle and the mouthfeel so soft and cuddly.

On tap at Molto!.

Bottle from MItsuya. Simple malt-forward nose, maybe some light peach and apple as it warms, but not much. Creamy on the palate. Light bodied with a touch of sweetness, but not overly so. This gets better as it warms up. Very nice little beer.

DruncanVeasey (8216) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2011
Keg, BeerFest Daisen, 23/09/11. Dusty orange with a low but well-retained head. Satsuma and lime peel aroma. Clean balanced lager with good hop citrus notes, fresh pith and peel, not an off note in sight. Mellow grapefruit with background biscuit. This lad can brew.

jinroh (1378) - ESTONIA - APR 3, 2014
Tap @ Miyazaki themed restaurant in Shinjuku. Pours nice golden pale, with a small head. Fresh hop aroma, a bit of bread. Taste has carbonation, a bit of fruitiness that surprises me in a pilsener - in a positive way. Has quite a good body and snappy bitter finish. Very well made, great beer to have under a hot sun (as the name suggests).

Bottle. Not sure if this is a little old considering its a summer seasonal. Nice enough though. Creamy pils, low on bitterness but it has some lingering there. Nice enough.

TimE (5534) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Med golden color, frothy white head. Peaches and flowery nose. Mildly hoppy and ultra smooth mouth with hop flowers really making their presence. The finish not overly bitter like a Pilsner (though it would be an insult to call this a pale lager), but enough for a lager (25-30 IBU??). A bit more ommph at the end would have helped this beer. Re-rate. This puppy has dramatically improved in last several years, with lots of herbal hoppiness going on these day, over a dry malty backbone. Really nice take on a Czech lager. 3.7 for new beer. Old rating of 3.3, so blending the two.
