hawthorne00 (3806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2016
Tap, very cold. Yellow gold with a white head. Aroma is grainy, but its a bit bready without being immensely sweet. Has enough body to stand up to Japanese pub grub without seeming too thin but really doesnt do much of itself. Some bitterness at the end. OK.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Tap in Kyoto. Clear golden color with good foam. Nose is lighter citrus, cereal grain, white sugar. Flavor has solid bitterness, citrus peel, some grain, some sugar. Denser body, some sourdough, some sweet bread, pretty solid all around. Impressive.

Cantabrian (1100) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 18, 2016
Honestly, I cannot see much of a difference on these Japanese pale lagers with different labels. Tastes and looks and smells like the vast majority of dry beers from Japan. A different look for a different niche, but with the same content in the bottle. This one has a particular late bitterness, rather metallic, which is nothing to be excited about. And it lacks the qilin on the label, making it even more boring.

mrjez (572) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2015
L: it pours nicely, a clear pale gold with carbonation and a white fluffy finger that sticks around. S: nothing much, rice, cereal, light biscuit. T: bland, inoffensive lager, nothing stands out. F: light and easy drinking. O: totally forgettable, just works as a means to have a beer with food or a quick refresher.
