look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden orange in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy off-white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of extremely thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate amounts of malts and some very light notes of grassy hops. Additionally, there are some light notes of honey sweetness.

T: Starts with some moderate flavors of malts including some honey like sweetness. There is a light amount of earthy bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean.

O: Not as good as the other offerings from this brewery but still a very drinkable beer - could be sessionable. Seems like it has deviated a bit from the style and not a great example.

Clear amber color, white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some vegetal notes. Taste follows, slightly fruity and hoppy, clean, light bitterness on the finish. Light body, crisp carbonation. Quite nice.

Clear, bright Orange with a nice white head;

Nose of stone fruit and malt with light nose of creamed sweet coffee;

Mouthfeel is medium with a very goo balance of malt and hops. Candi sugar/sweet coffee stone fruit flavors with some nice bitter coffee/espresso characters toward the back palate and a nice coffee/espresso finish.

This is a very fresh, quality and all around appealable drink.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow-orange in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly dissipated, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of malts in the nose.
T: The taste is malty but not too strong due to the light-bodied nature of this beer. There are also some notes of honey and hints of herbal hops.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't that flavorful and could use some more carbonation.

Pours golden orange with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. Minimal carbonation rising.

Aroma is quite light. Some malt and hops.

Taste has some honey, malt, hops. Rather floral with some tangerine and peach.

Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied and lightly cleansing. Somewhat lifeless.

Overall, an easy drinking beer. Sessionable.

Saw a bottles of this beer along with it's darker cousin at my local beer shop, decided to see what Japanese craft beer was like.

I have to wonder whether I received a bad bottle.

There was no head whatsoever after carefully pouring it into my glass. The colour was a clear rich amber, not bad, but it seemed as if there was little carbonation. I'm not a huge fan of highly carbonated beers however this beer seemed to have less than average for a craft beer.

The taste was extremely malty. So much so, that I couldn't finish it. Just too much malt for my liking. It tastes EXACTLY like a Tsingtao Dark.

If there was nothing wrong with my bottle, and they're all like this, I would recommend going for Tsingtao Dark because it tastes exactly the same at about 1/5 the price.

Cloudy with no carbonation and a creamy head of 2 fingers.

Pine, pineapple, grapefruit, peaches, garlic.

Fruit-loops, grapefruit, solid bitterness, hint of sweetness.

Light, almost over carbonated feel, with a sticky finish.

It is quite enjoyable. The name India Pale Lager is intriguing, leading one to believe it may that style of beer, which perhaps is what it really is? Found and drank in Chiang Mai, July 8th, 2015.

Purchased from the Nijiya in SF.

Pours copper with minimal white head. Smells of caramel and malts. Tastes like watered down liquid malt extract- that is to say a bit sweet, though not badly balanced with hops. Flavor doesn't linger, which makes it easy drinking.

Unfortunately, given the price, it definitely is not a session beer- I'll choose Echigo stout as my goto japanese malty beer.

A-Very light amber with a thin ring of fat white soapy bubbles.

S-Nondescript malty sweetness. Not much to say about it.

T/M-It's okay. Vienna lagers aren't the most distinctive style, so it's kind of hard to say much about this one. Pale malt sweetness, light, spritzy carbonation. An easy sipper without many distinguishing characteristics. I couldn't pick it out of a line-up.

O-Fine for the style, which admittedly is not one of my favorites.
