This Orion beer is made by Orion Breweries in Okinawa which is actually the 5th largest brewery in Japan.
Although it only accounts for about 1% of the beer market in Japan, it has a 50% share of the market in Okinawa.

As you can see on the the can it looks like it's made by Asahi, but they only import and distribute it in the main islands of Japan.

It's a light and refreshing lager.

Fairly non-distinctive to be honest but very drinkable and possible a good session beer I think, it doesn't feel too gassy.

Don't see it around very often in Honshu (the largest island in Japan) as Asahi, Kirin, Suntory etc dominate here.

Will buy again when I see it though.
