0.33 draft @ Okonomiyaki
Sweet aroma, malty, rice. Same goes for the taste, surprisingly sweet and seems simply Japanese with all that rice, some jasmine, delicate fruits, and some cardboard. Overall a standard pale lager though relatively drinkable and sweet.

Good lager overall, malty nose, some barley taste, finish dry and short. A refreshing beer for the hot weather. Best served chilled!

glacier (252) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Kolor słomkowy, wodnisty. Piana słaba zostawia otoczkę. Zapach słaby, lekki ryż, minimalny karton. Smak kwaskowaty, wodnisty, pusty. Lekki nijaki lager.

schavuitje (184) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2017
Licht gele body met een bubbel schuim top,een naar kruiden ruikende aroma hop smaak van zachte biscuit achtige mout en een nauwelijks proefbaar bittertje met een net niet droge afdronk

oobawa (983) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Basic lager, no more, no less. Starts out with a grassy, pale malt sweetness, then develops a lemon-apple backdrop before growing somewhat buttery with a tad of Czech hop funk. Drinkable, not very good, you know the score.

MAGICuenca91 (77) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Una correcta pale lager. Aroma escaso, apariencia plida, sabor interesante aunque no tenga demasiado cuerpo y un paladar suave pero gustoso. Dentro de las pale lager que he probado, sta me gusta.
