2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.633l bottle shared with ClubGonzo @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a dark orange body with a little tiny just off-white head. Strange nose almost sugar sweet sweets, lollipop-aroma and soap. Taste is completely different! Pungent-sh, synthetic and outdated carbonation, grass and quite watery. Almost like they have poured a old and heavily shaking sparkling water in the batch and hurried up to bottle it. There is also unfortunately a not so great dirt and earthy flavor near the end. As Yoda would have said it: To strange for me, this is. Yes, hmmm.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light caramel in color. Enjoyable fruit, orange, malty, toasted aroma. Caramel malt is a powerhouse in the flavor followed by light citrus and fruit, with some wheat. Spicy, carbonated mouth-feel. Interesting and fun but the one was enough.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff nov-12: hmm, dette var merkelige saker. Liten og tynn smak, og ettersmaken ditto. Japanske øl er en sjeldenhet her, men jeg husker at da jeg var i Japan likte jeg deres mørke øl svært godt (f.eks. Sapporo og Asahi). Men kanskje det er mer gode turminner.
