Brown bottle in Hong Kong (334mls) as "The Premium Malts Suntory Pilsner Beer" (5.5% ABV). A golden beer with a small short lasting lasting white head. Nose of sweet golden malts and little else. Flavours are similar with a light hop presence. Reminds me of Crown Lager in Australia sold as a "premium lager" in a similarly shaped bottle.

0.44ml from tap at Musashi-Kosugi (Tokyo). Just a lager, drinkable but it doesn’t have anything in particular

60minuteman (1590) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
On tap at Bistro Bingo. Clear yellow-gold pour, two finger white head. Simple corn, yeast and lemon aroma. Very smooth malt taste. Some citrus aftertaste and finishes utterly smooth.

Pudelek (411) - Gùrny Slùnsk / Oberschlesien, - APR 13, 2017
Puszka 0,33 przywieziona z Japonii. Kolor ciemnozłoty, piany brak, aromat nijaki. Typo eurolager (choć spoza euro) niczym się nie wyróżniający, choć też nie jakiś tragiczny.

TedE (1212) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2017
On tap at restaurant in Canberra. Slight hop nose. Amber beer with creamy white head. High carbonation. Tangy hop taste, bitter finish. Standard Asian lager. Looks good though.

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 (134) - 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.
