2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mostly just not very interesting. Darker and maltier than many Asian beers, which often have a heavy rice component. This was sweet in the nose and the mouth, with a malty first impression. Almost no hoppy bitterness. OK appearance, golden with a small white head. But just not very interesting, except as an example of a well made industrial lager.
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Prilično ok pivo, malo rijetko i presvijetlo, ali skroz ok. Po alo slatkasto, bez puno gorčine, sa laganim citrusnim notama drjoeng (1461) - SINGAPORE - DEC 9, 2017
5%ABV. Czech Pils.
Poured out yello. 6ºSRM.
Nose is beery and malty.
Mouthfeel is beery and carbonated. Palate has pale malt with crackers and wheat toast. There is a bit of flour and dough in the palate as well suggesting wheat malt. Hop flavors are pronounced and come in a the end with a woody, noble hop bitter, almost sappy with a strong hit of fresh grass.
Finish is brief-medium with a woody sappy bitter.
Overall a pretty refreshing, hop-forward Czech pils styled beer. Tide (4564) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2017

350ml Can from Family Mart, Hanzomon, Tokyo (¥242):gripweed57 (2966) - 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.

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 (162) - 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). madquacker (1176) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2017
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 (4) - 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 (766) - SIBENIK, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2017
