asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Can bought at Family Mart in Suzhou, CN. Nose has nicely fruity hop notes, even some mild mango or passionfruit - something similar to what i pick up from sorachi ace, but really muted. Flavor is good, but a little less exciting than the nose - some light barley and adjunct (mildly sweet flaked corn). Finish is very good with a good punch of fruity hop resin bitterness that lingers for a few minutes on the palate. Good use of hops elevates an otherwise mundane strong lager.

Cantabrian (1169) - Christchurch NZ, now Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2016
Aroma: 4 skunky ordinary Appearance: 3 good for a pale lager. Not creamy enough Taste: 6 metallic, somehwhat bitter, malty sweetness, flat, not complex Palate: 3 watery Overall: 11 There’s no limit to how beautiful these cans can be. The photo here does no justice to this fabulous presentation. I wish they could be as dedicated to making better beer.

Can multiple times. Malty flavors. A bit of caramel. Some weird chemical notes. Dry and grassy hops on the finish. Meh.

Tallboy, bought at 7-eleven cross from Holiday Inn Express SoHo Hong Kong. Pours a rich yellow color. with much fanfare of a white head that disppears before you’re ready to take the first sip. Aroma ihas good bitterness but a corn malt backbone. Flavor is decidedly bitter and rescinding metallic.

Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet mineral malt with light corn adjunct notes, German hops, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet corn malt with light grassy hops, lingering bitterness, bready. Can from Citysuper, Causeway Bay.

2.9
Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Can from Lawson. Clear golden pour with a nice white head. Grain, wheat, soap. Light to medium body with nice carbonation. Seems less bitter than when this first came out many years ago. It has a sweet malty/grainy taste vs the bitter name

GuideDogSaint (1809) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 3, 2015
330ml can from a supermarket in Shenzhen. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Malt aroma Bitter sweet finish. At 6% slightly better than average.

3.3
Wombata (627) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2014
Can from Lawsons. Aroma: Floral & earthy hops, lightly roasted grain with some "pear"-like malt sweetness Palate: Light-bodied Flavor: roasted grain, bitterness and clean, light-malt sweetness go back and forth on the mid-palate, finishes slightly bitter. Comment: With more malt, the perceived bitterness seems a bit toned down on the finish compared to Kirin’s regular line up. Still the carbonation and bitterness gang up on the tongue on the front end. I remember this being a bit better in the past. . . .
