Draft from Jam sake bar. Corn, yeast, wheat, citrus, spice with some grain and straw throughout. Pretty smooth. Though is it better than the original? Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Can at the home front in Kyoto - picked up in Tokyo. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds simple cereal, pale grains, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavour with minimal bitterness, some hay, pale biscuits, maybe lemon peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty OK balance in the finish, with further pale bread, lightly bitter straw, faint dough. Quite basic, unsurprisingly, but it drinks easy. mzaar (3742) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017

A small can from Jason’s in Guting [small, because way over-priced], rated back-to-back with Sapporo Premium. Aroma: bready, rather sour. Appearance: same as the Premium, maybe a little richer amber, head dissipates completely. Palate: light-bodied, but with a pleasantly slick texture. Soft carbonation, nothing happening at the finish. Taste: lightly bitter, the texture redeems it. This is in the Beer Hunter’s top 500, and a marked improvement on the Premium, but at that price, once is enough. Merry Christmas!

Clear golden with little white head. Lots of sweet grains with some dust and normal bitter hoppy stuff. Bad. Iznogud (4692) - CROATIA - AUG 15, 2016
Canned at Red Hill Bar, Takayama. Pours clear golden with white head. Malty, sweet, rice, short finish with hint of bitterness, watery. Thin bodied. Drinkable, and that’s about it. hawthorne00 (4195) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2016
Can, thanks to my wife for nicking out to the slev. Gold, white head stick around a while. Hay, mild spices a slight whiff of pears. Sweet and reasonably clean but empty in the middle. Dry with some spices and moderate bitterness.
