Beer is the most popular drink in Japan, but the real beer ratio has been reducing year by year and fake beer is getting more popular instead. The fake beer implies low malt beer and no malt beer. They are different from so-called non-alcohol beer. They taste almost the same as real beer and you can be intoxicated by drinking them. You might wonder why Japanese people do love such a fake thing. Actually we don't love such fake beer. Of course we don't prefer fake things but the price of them is attractive. Owing to the terrible liquor tax system in Japan, a 350ml can of real beer costs around 200 yen while low malt beer is 150 yen and no malt beer is 100 yen! No malt beer is made from peas and literally contains no malts and hops; it can't be called "beer" any more. Fake food related matters are reported on TV news every day in Japan and most of them are frauds. Sure this fake beer is not a fraud, but it is a fake and I don't like this situation in which Japan is full of fake foods.
