Nice golden color pured on my glass. Medium white head that dissipates quickly. It has a barly malt smell with little hop presence. Taste is nice with good balance. I enjoyed this beer as any good lager. It has good aftertaste and it is refreshing. Really good.

We were having Japanese food one night and I wanted to get something a little more interesting than the standard Sapporo, which is a rice lager. I'm not sure it's that much better but it is a little more interesting.

Color was a light pale with very active carbonation with a typical Sapporo refreshing look to it.

Aroma was not much different than the original Sapporo. Maybe a little bit of malt.

Flavor is refreshing but, again, not much really to it.

Overall I do think this is enough more interesting to make it a nice alternative to a more standard rice lager.

330 ml bottle, bought at an Asian goods supermarket in the Netherlands. ABV 4,7%. Ingredients are water, hops and barley malts. I drink this 5 days over its Best Before date.
Poured into a lager glass.
Very deep golden yellow colour, with two fingers of white, thick head, with very good retention. Head leaves heavy lacing behind, as it goes down. Minimal activity in the glass.
Sweet aroma of malts, with some fruity notes, mostly apple.
NIce sweet malty taste, typical lager one, that turns into bitterness once your sip has gone down. Light taste of iron.
Medium body with average carbonation.
It's not something that will make you enthusiastic, but it's an honest brew, what you're looking for into a lager you will find. I really lked it.

The brew is clear straw colored with a white high head leaving some lacing.

The smell is weak has a malty bread nuance, and some citric presence.

Has a taste of white bread, lime, some fresh grass and bitter orange peel notes.

Medium carbonation, a refreshing texture and a medium small body, a dry finish.

A rather nice lager, well balanced and with some bite.
