3.45/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This one's got some quality bubbles on it, slowly dissolving--which lent a very attractive quality to it, especially as it pegs itself all around the glass. The smell is also interesting, malty and zesty, like you're about to take something in that's got substance. Robust.

As for the taste, the big plus is the grainy and quite long hoppy trip. I think it's particularly lacking in the mouthfeel department, feeling pretty flat in the mouth. Let-down. Still, I could drink quite a few of these, but I'd probably go for the normal Malts, by Suntory, which I feel to be a superior-tasting brew.

An interesting and confusing aspect of this beer is the bottlecap, which has a strange symbol that I've never seen Suntory use. It looks something like a creature from Space Invaders, or some sort of Aztec wall art. Bizarre and unexpected. Don't know what to make of it.

They also call this "chilled beer", which one may also ponder. (936 characters)

3.56/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Ingredients: malt, hops
Brilliant gold color. Light fine head. Light body, light taste. Significantly more bitter than the average Japanese lager. No significant difference from Malt's Beer, except for a slightly more hoppy floral aroma, the bracing bitter after taste lingers for a little longer and 0.5% more alcohol. (320 characters)
