500ml Bottle in Dotonburi area of Osaka, Japan (¥280):
Very much a basic pale lager with the usual corn & maize adjuncts coming through with touches of maize & rice not far behind. There was a faint sweetness to this one at points & I managed to get some hay & grassy hops further on but there wasn't a whole lot to this beer & it's one that I could have lived without trying.
