Very nice light lager. Great on a hot day but nothing remarkable.

633 mL bottle at Zakkushi on Denman (Vancouver). Clear light yellow gold with foamy white head. Very mild, clean flavor and mild aroma: malty grain, very slight sweetness and light herbal hop bitterness. Light body and crisp carbonation. Good with skewers of yakitori.

Poured from a brown 21.4 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is light, malts, a bit of sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good example of this style.
