This beer is clearly an answer to the award-winning The Premium Malts, which is entirely underrated.

Like other Japanese beers, the head did not retain, but for as long as it lasted it was a beautiful golden amber color. The smell was a little tart and the malty flavor (it advertises itself as malty) doesn't kick in until way later. It is obviously quality, and the dynamism of flavor is to be admired.

Honestly, it attempts to be a high-class lager and just ends up something that you wouldn't want to drink a whole sixer of.

Golden in color, with no head or lacing. The smell is smoke & honey. The taste is malty, smooth, and a touch smoky. The mouthfeel is slick with a light carbonation. Drinkability is good, as it is a light flavor and very mild. All in all a drinkable & likable beer.
