3.23/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

350 ml can in Shin-Osaka with a BB date stamp of 11-2018.
Pours amber with excellent clarity and a moderate size white head that has rather weak retention.
It smells like a well crafted and well balanced balanced pilsner, albeit with a higher malt/hop balanced than usual, The taste is a bit disappointing.
Feel: near medium body with overly prickly carbonation.
Overall: Clean, solid pilsner.
