Gotta love drinking on the train

My second drink of the day came from a convenience store, and since drinking is allowed on trains in Japan, I had it on the bullet train from Himeji to Okayama. It was a Sapporo White Belg wit beer. The small can was ¥138 ($1.10), rather cheap compared to other beers. It had 5 percent alcohol and a white, slightly cloudy body with a medium white head. The smell was wheaty sweet and quite nice. It tasted a bit bitter at the beginning then slightly sweet and fruity, and finished with a nice wheat beer-like taste. A nice beer considering the price, but you could tell that it was cheap.

      Thanks for the recommendations! Won’t make it to Tokyo any time soon, unfortunately 🙁 Bet the craft beer scene has exploded since I left in 2010!!
