3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color. Oranges and a bit of pomegranate in nose. The fruits in the mouth are much more noticeable, slightly tart and astringent. Full bodied, but slightly cloying. Reminds me of a pomegranate and orange juice mix.

Draught at Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom. Clear deep golden. Neutral nose. Sweet and honeyish, some resin and orange. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and significant alcohol impact. Long resiny bitterness. Disharmonious.

Cask at the Nakameguro taproom. Slightly hoppy aroma, with pomegranate, citrus. Fruity flavor. Decent malt, ok hops, light body. Not so interesting. Somewhat syrupy and the alcohol very evident. Not my style.
