Can bought in Japan poured into a goblet.

A: Golden in color, very clear and bubbles rising from the bottom.

S: Sweet floral notes. Very light smell overall. Slight grain smell is also present.

T: Malts stand out, slightly sweet citrus is also present. Not a whole lot going on, but the grains stay well into a pleasant finish.

M: Light but highly carbonated.

O: Light but refreshing. The malts and grains are done fairly well but that is about it for me. Sessionable for sure.
