Canned at Shinshu Osake Mura (Nagano Sake Village), Tokyo. Clear golden, creamy head. Fruity and grainy, slim and dry. Light grassy hops leads it the strightest way to a salty bitterish finish. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009

Unpleasant. KyotoLefty (10808) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2009
Pale colored. Fruity, malty flavor. Slightly grassy and decently balanced. I find this can be quite variable. At its best, it is a light, fruity, citrusy, flavorful pils, almost ale-like. It seems to go off rather easily, though, and then it gets rather insipid (see some ratings below). This rating is for a can in top condition. douglas88 (9795) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2017
On tap. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet light breast nose. The flavor is light lemon, biscuits, melon. Sweet and clean. Solid.

Smallish white head. Light yellow body. Dense firm malty straw aroma with hoppy caramel notes. Dry caramelly straw and malt taste with dry grainy hoppy notes. Clean, clear mouthfeel. Dry, resiny malty sweetish aftertaste with medicinal notes. Nice! (0.35l can from, I think, the supermarket in the Matsumoto bus station.) KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2007
Rather malty brew, butterscotsh. Not too complex, but certainly drinkable. mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2012
330ml can. Crisp snow white head atop a hazy amber body. Bready malty aromas that are very inviting. Full in the mouth with a smooth easy drinking mouthfeel. Good body and well balanced. TimE (6268) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2005
Light med-pale color. A malty nose with hints of apples. Malty mouth with some oranges, apples and cream corn. Slightly sour dry finish.

Can from Amazon as part of a Yo-Ho 4 can set. Served in a pilsner glass it pours a deep gold with a good 1 cm head of fizzy foam. Sweet, lightly bready pilsner malts. Sweet, then bready then a soapy sweetness kind of reminding me of that mini-purple chewing gum that had a slight soapiness to it. The finish is semi-dry, refreshing and lightly hoppy, it has enough of a malt profile but it a bit too sweet for me plus I don’t dig that mild soapiness. Actually once I get used to it that initial soapy feeling is gone and it becomes a pretty average pils. OK.
