Sparkling Hop

Thanks go out to EinWeizenbitte for the chance to try this (apparently he is furnishing the whole of the USA with this Happoshu)! Anyway, I owe him.
I like the look of the can. Nice color and I enjoy the way it feels it my hand with the ridged texture.
Essentially this is a very, very sweet macro lager. The head and lace are better than the typical American macro lager, but it is reminiscent in terms of its (lack of) hop profile and corny, vegetal feel.
Carbonation is soft and appealing. Pleasing in the mouth.
To me, it is what it is. Actually, as long as we are dealing with a refreshing, macro-type lager we are in good shape. Anything more and you may be disappointed.
DELIGHTED to have had the chance to try this, and to be honest it was better than expected.
