Scipio's rating

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 5/20
Scipio (1013) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
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. Ive had worse. However, since I will never find this anywhere remotely close in my part of the world, the novelty factor is pretty high.

Tap @ Tokyo beer museum. Appearance: pours clear straw yellow with ok creamy white head and lacing. aroma/taste: barley, breadm and floral notes. palette: medium malty aroma, average carbonation, light to medium body, medium malt sweetness, somewhat balanced by a light to average bitterness, medium duration and a watery texture. Overall: pretty standard lager

60minuteman (1657) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
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 (20826) - 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.

Luneylane (159) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 25, 2016
A small can from Jasons 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 Hunters top 500, and a marked improvement on the Premium, but at that price, once is enough. Merry Christmas!

Ritzn (1266) - GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Clear golden with little white head. Lots of sweet grains with some dust and normal bitter hoppy stuff. Bad.
