This is a fairly easy to drink beer and given that it's a happoshu it should be judged using criteria for the style. Yes, there is no complexity and the flavor is mild but it's supposed to be like that. A nice beer for the purpose it serves.

Suntory Rich Malt – 5%
350 ml can on a Shinkansen from Kobe, Japan.

Aroma: light spicy hops with sweet malts.
Flavor: light spicy hops with sweet malts. Very mild bitterness.
Medium body with exceptional smoothness and near medium carbonation.
Overall: a flavorful, well balanced and harmonious lager. Went well with the Kobe beef bento box I picked up at the station. Recommended.

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.

Serving type: can
