Honestly, beer all taste similar. The only differences would be the brand and the packaging. Sengoku Basara is rather popular, so the sales are boosted. Very natural!

Were they drunk before buying this beer?
Because I sure as hell would have had to if I could be bothered to waste my money on that shit.

Can a beer be GAAAAAR?
No but if you drink it, then YOU will be.

I'd drink this beer too if it gave me the power to scale castle walls while standing on two horses, or give females orgasms by simply touching their hands LOL
