Bottle from Yamaichi. Malty, estery, biscuit nose, peach, sweet orange, nice malt. Cloudy deep golden color with a tall, fine head. Sweet and fruity, biscuit, peaches, grains. Not the subtle grains of a helles, but more full-on. Yeast gives nice estery fruits, nice body. Decent bitterness at the finish. A bit too sweet, and just a tad tinny, but nice enough.
