maekchu (3816) - Hirakata, - NOV 13, 2012
Can from Yamaya. Typical cardboard and spirits aroma. Medium straw color, with scuzzy foam. Initial is also cardboard (but since this is a "premium" happosho -- Ha! -- it’s not quite as off-putting as many regular ones are); mid brings a mild sweetness and lots of carbonation; final is flat and metallic. Thin-medium body. Not really offensive, but not really good either.

330 ml bottle, thanks to Ingo! Sampled on June 12, 2015.
Hazy to cloudy yellow color, small white head. Sweet, caramel, a bit hoppy scent. Malty, bitter taste. Bitter aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

No skunk smell, nor any bad flavors here. But the palate is a bit too weak and the flavor is really washed out. Decent compromise if you’re in the market for a daisan though: lack of both the good and the bad leaves you a really neutral can that’s easy to chug.

KyotoLefty (10126) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2014
Can. Served very cold. Oily golden color, clear, fine head. Biscuity malt, lemon and grassy hop nose, trying to be a helles. Thin flavor, minerals, sweet lemon, biscuits. Not a great flavor by any means, but not gross. A bit of alcohol and lemon candy take it down. Useless, as expected, but better than the last one. A bit. rather lame carbonation and body.

350 ml can bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and notable small carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with barley grains, sugar, very light floral, white bread, light lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of thin malt, with very light grains, soda water, thin molasses, light bread, light lemon, very light bitter hops and light grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is a several stepped-up Happoshu, very close to a watery macro Pale Lager. Malt taste is a lot stronger in a thin background, very light barley grains, low and okay sweetness, quite bready and notable light hops, no other adjunct or off-tastes. Not bad at all!... Hoppiness is very light floral, light lemon and slight smelly grass in nose. Light lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is light but notable at macro level for a low-fi sweet-bitter semi-finish; Slightly dry after taste; Easy and quite malty to mouth.

Comments: A well-made Happoshu, which gives the impression of a very light macro Pale. That’s some accomplishment after having so many crappy Happoshus. Very drinkable and one that I can sit back and relax with. Alright!

słodki, lekko owocowy zapach z nutami słodu i siarki. kolor złoty, piana dość przyzwoita. w smaku bardzo miękkie, ułożone, lekko słodkie, z niską i krótką goryczką. nic ciekawego, ale bardzo łatwo pijalne

faroeviking (10742) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 24, 2013
Lata. Clear yellow, small fizzy head. Quite mild aroma and flavour: Bit malty with minerals and light short bitterish touch. More in the aroma than in the flavour. Thin. Goes straight down.
