Finally got around to reviewing one of these. Used to be a staple in Amherst whenever Daisuke pitched.

A - Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a one finger head thanks to a hard pour that faded to leave a thin white halo and a nice cloud.

S - Smell is average, lots of sweet malts and rice. None of the corn that comes with American adjunct lagers thanks to the rice. A nice rice aroma too but its fleeting.

T - Tastes of more of the sweet malts with an almost german spice/pilsner quality to it. There is a slight earthyness with some faint rice and a nice dry finish.

M - Mouthfeel is slightly thin, which I suppose it to be expected. Dry finish, very easy to drink.

O - Overall this is pretty good, definitely what I go to when I want a Japanese beer that's inexpensive
