I honestly didn't think this would be classified as a German Pilsner on here. I found this to be more a Adjunct Lager. Either way this wasn't overly impressive. There are far better beers from Japan out there. The beer is a little on the watery side, it's pale yellow in color and hasn't got much else in it to brag about.

Into a pint glass (green bottle at Thai Gardens, Freeport, they don't have pilseners there):

A: really clear gold, small white head disappeared within seconds

S: some light malts to it, slightly metallic, subdued hops

T: clean and malty, hops only come in once it warms

M: light, sessionable, light sweet aftertaste, bland finish

O: nothing special, deccent with the Asian fare
