Oh! la! ho! Golden Ale 5% can at Shinshu Sake Mura.
A floral bready aroma on a bright gold body. Medium bodied with a crackery light malt character and a perfumey floral hoppiness. Nice dry finish. Decent and much more flavorful than the Ki no Sato from Minami Alps I’d had right before it. willisread (3544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Fall Keyaki 2015. Blonde with a white head. Grassy aromas with some bread and light lemon. Crisp and bright on the palate. Dry finish. GenDV138 (7579) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2014

Can from souvenir shop in Nagano Station. Hay and grass aroma, light yeastiness, slightly sourish fruit. Hazy medium straw color. Crackers, flour, biscuits, cattle feed. Some sweetness gathers strength in mid palate. Thin finish. Thin body. Okay. Maybe this basic line of beers is much better on tap. petewhitley (570) - Nagoya, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 hay, grass, coffee, golden, hazy, minimal head, light sweetness, light body, thin feel. Attractive, slightly hazy amber pour. Almost no head. Very grassy, field style aroma. Thin and fleeting, slightly sweet, quick and dry finish. Very easy to drink. Would be a great six-pack during a summer day. Nothing special, but enjoyably smooth.

Strong tropical aroma. Fruity malt flavor, mango, sweet finish. Pretty decent local fruity ale, maybe a bit too sweet though. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2013
Can from Shinshu Sake Mura. Taste is light citrus, nice bitterness, grainy, floury. Aroma floral, lemon, biscuit malt. Only a few notes but remember being surprised by it as I thought it wouldn’t be so good.

Bottle from Tanakaya, Tokyo. Pale golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts, fruit, citrus. Flavour is fruity, citric. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden with a lacing, little head. Very potent lemony hop aroma. Good balance between malt and grassy hop bitterness. Full-bodied. One of my favourite golden ales of this low strength. omhper (25541) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2009
Canned at Shinshu Osake Mura (Nagano Sake Village), Tokyo. Clear pale golden, small head. Light grapefruit and vanilla upfront. Dryish despite notes of honey. Light bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Nicely drinkable and quite aromatic.
