3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m assuming we are putting the most recent batches under this beer. Handpump at Nakameguro Taproom. Glowing orange with a frothy white head. Light stone fruit nose with some grass, peaches and malt. Earthy, grassy bitterness on the palate but there is some apricot like fruitiness albeit light. Slightly bitter finish and dry. Nice enough.

Cask at Nakameguro. Labelled an ESB. Orange, citrus nose, light pine and mint. Glowing brown-orange with a fine, thick head, hazy. Lemony orange flavors, caramel, chocolate. Quite fruity, lightly tropical, and rather bitter. A bit thin. Very hoppy and enjoyable.

Just a good solid easy drinking pale. Quite full bodied, but really benefits from the hand pump. Nothing amazing about it, this would be the definition of wormanlike with a little more charm.

light amber color. Light fruity citrusy mouth. Distinctively American hops. Well balanced though a bit thin. Still very sessionable
