2.2/5  rDev -31.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a thin head with low retention on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is candy corn... not good.
The taste leads with metallic bitterness followed by candy sweetness.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
Too sweet, not good.

classic yellow beer here, except i get no off flavors, none of that corn syrup thing, and a pretty solid mouthfeel actually, with lots of carbonation and a very clean finish. bright and bubbly looking sunny colored brew, inch of white foamy head, and for what i assume to be a budget beer in japan, it looks awfully good. fresh grain, a little sweet, pale barley and light crystal malt in this one, with basically no hops. its refreshing because of the feel, but has that mild sweetness throughout. this is the kind of beer that goes good from the can after yard work, or with a spicy fish dinner, just clean refreshing beer that cuts through some big flavors when it is asked to do so. in the american craft beer context its sub par, but in the international lager type world, its ahead of many of its peers. cool to try bu i wouldnt buy it here.

Purchased by my wife at the local Family Mart, Yomitan, OKinawa...

A - Decent looking pour, two fingers of white head, window pane clear golden pilsner color

S - Sweet malts, and dry grass on the nose

F - Same as the nose except more pronounced; sweet malts in the front, dry hay and citric bitterness in the rear

M - lBoasts a refreshing light medium body and small bubble carbonation which leaves a creamy texture

Overall I enjoyed this the more I drank it, better than many of the other "Macro" Japanese offerings. I would suggest you have it when compared to say, Kirin, Orion, Sapporo etc

Back at the Asakura Smile hostel here in Tokyo. My bottom bunk is awful comfy, but I was charged an extra 100 yen for a towel. Oh wait, this not hosteladvocate, this is beer advocate. Poured from an 11.2 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a touch of malts. Taste is malty, a bit sweet, refreshing and easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
