3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Vivo Ikebukuro. Aroma brings fresh hops, biscuit and faint vanilla notes. Appearance is a golden brown with no foam at all. Taste is smooth biscuit, bready malts, faint hops and subtle vanilla. Overall, this is very simple but It’s very crisp, fresh and sessionable. Not a whole lot of complexity but, I did enjoy it a lot.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Vivo. Golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, quite interesting, but bit faint. Hints of citrus, hops, pine and resin. Taste is good. Creamy and a bit herbal initially. Cheese and chive, light citrus, lemon sherbet. Pretty good. Not sure if it is supposed to taste like this, but I really like it. Slight carbonation but pretty smooth. Thought it was sorachi but apparently it’s Cascade and Ahtanum. Sure it said something about NZ though. Maybe not. Interesting fruitiness. Kiwi maybe, something tropical, bit of pear too. Want to try it again to see if it tastes as good the second time.
