Thank you for this gift Chris. Pours a clear pale golden with a weak white head. Aroma consists of yeast, grain, and a bit of grass. The taste is very grainy. Maybe some hay. Grainy taste at the end with a bit of yeast. Short aftertaste. Light body with a thin texture. There is quite a bit of carbonation in here. I’ve had worse. However, since I will never find this anywhere remotely close in my part of the world, the novelty factor is pretty high.

350ml Can from Family Mart, Hanzomon, Tokyo (¥242):gripweed57 (2796) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2017
A very basic & cheap tasting lager that didn't have a whole lot going on really, I can now see why this is one of the Japanese lagers that never seems to make it as far as the UK. It was an easy enough beer to drink, mainly down to the fact that it was light & bland for the most part, it was however relatively skunk free expect for at the very end of the taste but it's not really one that I'd recommend.
From old tasting notes. Pale yellow gold color. Tart, crisp malt flavor hints at lemon peel and yeast. Nice dry hop finish. Good balance. Refreshing flavor. mile (4032) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Can. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint - light vegetable/herbal hoppyness, light metal. Body is light, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint - light vegetable/herbal hoppyness, faint metal. Finish is short, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, light vegetable/herbal hoppyness, light metal and faint alcohol. Not very enjoyable. JuanCC (147) - Valencia, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2017
Aroma escaso. Poco compleja en boca, aunque con un amargor muy agradable y conseguido. Enorme bebestibilidad. Recomendable (a falta de una buena artesana).

Quite a drinkable macro lager. Was at the premium end in Tokyo (something better than the blander lagers on offer). That said was quite nice. nialdoherty (3) - Leederville, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2017 does not count
Nice crisp taste. Very very easy to drink. Best before a meal. One of my favourites even though mass produced. Very light. funcut (714) - SIBENIK, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2017
