WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2012
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.

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.

Nice crisp taste. Very very easy to drink. Best before a meal. One of my favourites even though mass produced. Very light.

BBHansen (939) - Køge, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2017
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 (1719) - 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 (21299) - 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.

Flaska. Klar guldfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av säd, vitt bröd, gräs. Krispig avslutning.

Luneylane (193) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 25, 2016
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!
