Basic pale rice lager, hints of cereal grain sweetness, mild feints at floral noble hop notes, tiny seltzer-ish lager esters, echoes of yeast. Not undrinkable, not noticeable, not anything, really. Bubbly low-level alcohol delivery system. Cold. Helped soothe the heat from the habanero smelt eggs. What you end up drinking when the Hitachino Nest is $13 a bottle. Eh.

Our first Japanese beer and it is a, uh, very famous one. It has a classic pale lager sweat sock/corn smell and the appearance is your standard pee pee yellow. The taste is sleek grain, flat malt, and minimal yack; it is characterless and clean. It goes down easy, but doesn't have a whole lot to recommend it really. Good for a luxurious Shabu Shabu-ing in a large empty restaurant while trying to convince a skeptic of the power of Ren Faires/haunted houses/GWAR.

Вполне себе неплохой лагерок из Японии. Имеет весьма неприятное солодовое послевкусие. Возможно хорошо подойдет для вечеринок.Плюс это одна из самых стильных банок которые я видел.

Pale blonde, light on the palate and easygoing down. Nothing surprising but still a refreshing summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
