Exclusively on the cooler shelves of convenience store chain Lawson, is Suntory’s Green Style. It’s not a beer, but since it was stocked in between The Premium Malt’s and Gran Dry, I bought it. I’m such a sucker for the “exclusive” label.
Suntory Green Style is an alcoholic grapefruit beverage along the lines of Asahi Panache, however while Panache has a malt liquor base, Green Style is all grapefruit juice. Poured out into the glass, there’s no head it’s just carbonated grapefruit juice colored, and smells the same… a strong citrus.
Green Style is more of a sipping beverage for summer, to be enjoyed outside on a weekend afternoon. It’s very straight forward, so if you’re a fan of grapefruit juice and need a little kick, Green Style is for you. It’s a very refreshing beverage for the summer months.
