Bought a bottle of this from a resort in Hakone, Japan. Poured into a Baird pint glass. Comes in a weird blue bottle like the Minoh Cab. The worst part of this was the vanadium from hot spring water sitting on the bottom of the bottle like a bad hefe. Even after spinning the bottle a bit, when I poured it into the glass, it came out in a huge glob and plopped into my glass! This continued to sit on the bottom of my glass like sunken vomit. The smell of this was a low-quality pale ale, and the smell matched. Overall, I couldn't finish this because of the mouthfeel and the disgusting appearance. One of the worst beers i've ever had.
