suntory appears to have a slight edge over the other j-macros as far as happoshu goes. i wouldn't recommend this as a general beer, but if you are in the market for a digestable happoshu, this is drinkable.

nothing special to say about the appearance or smell, i will now refer you to every other review of every other near-beer. the taste, however, deserves a note. it's pretty bitter. probably has more character and flavor than many others. i still prefer any other beer style listed and defined here on BA over any happoshu. (531 characters)

Nice color for happoshu, but there was something almost oily in it. that I found more-or-less disturbing. The smell was very tinny with a bit of sulfur thrown in for good measure. Still, for low-malt beer, it was pretty malty with a dry, boozy finish. Unfortunately, it was very tinned. The mouthfeel was pretty smooth, and I must say, while I will never choose this beer again, I would drink it again were it given to me. (422 characters)

500ml can.

A: Pours a light straw color with a big fizzy head that fades quickly to traces of lacing.

S: Aroma is very mild with a bit of malt sweetness and bit of grain.

T: Taste continues with a bit of malt sweetness and not much more. Just a bit of bitterness and a very dry finish.

F: Light body, smooth and quite bland.

O: Not much here unless you are into dry lagers. (383 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

500ml can poured into pint glass 4/4/14

A clear straw yellow, lots of little bubbles, tiny suspended particles moving around, a short lived finger of foam leaves no lace

S stale crackers, almost smells of sorghum but I'm pretty sure there's none in the beer, some apple juice, and dried hay

T more of the same really, tastes like a macro lager but nothing offensive and in all honesty not much going on

M not quite watery but very light, bubbles give it some life and a fairly clean finish

O not a whole lot going on, light bodied, light flavour, meh

about as basic as they come but at least nothing overly offensive. I bought this on a whim thinking it might be a style tic remembering Suntory makes Happoshu and I got lucky, just Sahti to go now (757 characters)

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Can: a big, dodgy silver can. Don't like cans like this, they look... cheap.

Appearance: vibrant - almost fluorescent - yellow, with a fluffy white head that disappears quickly. Not a good start.

Aroma: heavy, pungent grains of uncertain origin. Not much else at all, and none too pleasant.

Taste: eugh. Just a big whack of those pungent grains. I poured half of it out as I couldn't bring myself to stomach the rest.

Aftertaste: dissipates quickly enough, thank goodness.

Mouth feel: clean and crisp with a big carbonation.

Overall: a fairly cheap but fairly nasty beer. Not sure if it's that the Happoshu style doesn't agree with me or what, but this is not worth drinking. (681 characters)

A - florescent yellow transparent body with large apparent bubbles and no head, just white spittle floating around the top of the glass.
S - Faint grain aroma.
T - grain. carbonation. No hops.
M - Overcarbonated, extremely clean mouthfeel.
D - This is beach beer. Nothing more. (399 characters)
