3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of light malts, tropical fruits, citrus, honey, a little caramel, light aromatic hops. Flavour is light malty sweetness with a medium bitter finish. Everything about this beer is rather ’light’. It’s an easy-going refreshing APA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from The Garden Jiyugaoka. Pours nice golden, slightly hazy with a staying white head - that leaves also a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is the best part of this beer - it has fresh tropical fruits, some morning forest freshness above melon aromas. Taste is fruity at first but then bitter - and maybe even too bitter - hops hit the tongue and the longer and bitter aftertaste ensues. I would like this beer even better if I had a few more seconds to enjoy the first sip before the bitterness covers everything. Overall, for this price - 178 yen - incredible bargain for a very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark golden, slightly orangey color, and a small white head which quickly disappears.
The aroma is my favourite, although slightly weaker than I’m used to - citrusy hops dominate the smell.
The taste starts neutral with a slight bitterness, slightly fruity, and finishes with a strong spicy taste, which also stays in the aftertaste.
Very nice ale, although I have a feeling, nothing really extra rememberful.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy off-white head, fair lacing and sparkling appearance. Excellent aroma of citrus, pine and tropical fruits. Taste starts moderate sweet toasted malty, follows by refreshing grainy and citric acidity, crispy mouthfeel with heavy bitter finish and long aftertaste. Full body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Rich, smooth and refreshing brew...

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottle. First time it was very good. Today it’s very poor. It seems to be an old one. Beer’s expiration date: 5/2015. The rate is the average.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Golden, slightly amber, clear body, with a creamy, frothy, white head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Interesting, fresh aroma of lemongrass, white wine, honey, hay, candy. Taste of grass, honey, citrus, candy, white wine. Mouthfeel is medium, oily to creamy, with a lively carbonation and finishes with grass, citrus and some candy and a pretty long bitterness and dryness. Very interesting, unique and greatly balanced Pale Ale, that samples the Nelson Sauvin hop variety very well! Pretty underrated in my opinion, propably because it is quite different to other Pale Ales and hence not for everyone’s taste.
