Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Can - Light grains and some honey. Clear gold with a rich white head. Bitter up front with a touch of grain and apple. Nose is ok but tastes a bit harsh. Luneylane (263) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 12, 2016
Not interested in clocking up ticks, promised myself I’d only rate the really good ones. However, since they’re so widely available in Taipei, and since I actually worked in Japan for five years, I’ll rate this one just for fun. Two small cans from Wellcome supermarket poured into a pint glass for the full effect. Aroma: fresh grass, quite nice actually. Appearance: clear amber, very little head, noticable rising bubbles. Light-bodied, rather thin, lively carbonation, very abrupt bitter finish. Taste: a medium degree of bitterness. For a macro out of a can, this is not the worst by any means. Drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 On tap at a Japanese restaurant (ramen noodles and grilled skewers ) in Hong Kong. Served with branded glass (the glass was chilled). Golden clolor with a white head (which disappeared very soon). Taste fresh with favour of malt and bread. Easy to drink, no bitterness if finish the drink in around 20 mins (when it is not chilled bitterness favour comes out). Really good accompany with Japnanese food. thellgren (1164) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2016
0.33 can from somwhere in Tokyo. Appearance is the usual pale, clear and big head. This has also some delicate hops, but it is mainly sweetish. Might work well if cooled and drank in a hot and humid climate. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Tap at Delta Sky Lounge out of a robo machine in Norita. Bright golden pour with a pure white head. Sweet grains. Pretty good palate - slick with some density. Far better than BMC back home.
