I'm not real what Happoshu is supposed to taste like, but as beer, this stuff is just flavorless fizzy water.

Pours a nice golden color. It has a very sad and thin head that disappears very quickly. Skunky smell. Fruity taste not unpleasant but a bit watery. Carbonated feel.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of malts are present in the nose with hints of sweetness and skunk.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts with hints of sweetness and skunk.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Happoshu beer is easy to drink and doesn't have that much in the way of "off" or skunky aromas or flavors.

Wow, another Japanese beer to try while here in Tokyo. Poured from an 11.2 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts are present. Taste is light, malty, a touch of sweetness. Feels light in the mouth and overall is yet another mediocre beer.

Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Received in a trade

A: Clear and golden beer, topped by a white head composed of large bubbles. There's a fair amount of head retention but no lace to speak of.

S: Aromas have a light grain sweetness coupled with light notes of grass and hay hops.

T: The taste is pretty much in line with the aromas, with a light sweetness of malts and a light hop flavor of grass. Taste is clean and unoffensive, if not very flavorful.

M: Light bodied, with a crisp feel that has a medium amount of carbonation. The finish is pretty much the same as the taste, slightly sweet with no bitterness of hops.

O: I thought this was a simple and enjoyable brew; certainly light on flavor but makes a good summertime/lawnmower type thirst quencher.

Thanks to HopFace for sending me this rarity from Japan!
