Nice golden brown colour with a tan head. Aroma has faint malt to it. Taste is weak but alright for a regular beer. Nothing to see here. Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2013
Can. Malty caramel nose. Medium-bodied, some depth. Sticky mouthfeel gives way to cough drops and water, but the flavour hangs around. Six percent alcohol neatly hidden. Not exactly a rich autumnal ale, but pretty good cost-performance. biirusaikou (2705) - - AUG 26, 2013
Soap, metallic smell. Caramel malt, roasted cereals, mild hops, sweet watery finish. Surprisingly rich and malty for a Suntory happoshu. maekchu (3917) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2012
500 ml can from local Yamaya store. Syrupy, candy factory aroma. Maple or dark brown tea color. Mild brown sugar sweetness’ goes flat in mid palate; final has mostly just some alcohol warmth. Thin body, with very noticeable carbonation. Pretty lousy overall. This is a seasonal happoshu (includes spirits). It does have a bit of flavor, and it’s not really offensive -- as many happoshu are.
