I’ve been undertaking weeks of painstaking research. We all know that Japanese beer is excellent. One-by-one, I’ve been working through the different beers on sale in my local convenience stores. This has been a long term project, which I realised I’d started when I looked at my collection of cans building up over time for recycling. At first, the purpose was to try as many beers as possible, but I wasn’t going to be able to do a comparative taste test after drinking them days or weeks ago, so I turned to evaluating the labels instead.
