3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Labeled as Baird Shizuoka Natsumikan Ale. Pours with a small white head over a hazed golden body. Aroma of passion fruit, light grapefruit hops, and a slight sugary presence. Taste is more restrained with light passion fruit acidity and hop bitterness in the finish. Watery mouthfeel and moderate bubbles.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting.
Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of orange/lime juice.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Nicer aromatically than the regular mikan brew, and better balanced too. More obviously fruit juicy in the nose, soft orangey-limey kinda thing, more floral. Better mouthfeel, more creamy. Alas, it’s still ultimately a novelty beer and doesn’t really rise above that level (whereas, say, Hitachino Nest’s ginger beer is jaw-droppingly amazing in the realm of novelty brews, because the depth behind the ginger is insane). Pleasant and...grimace...refreshing, but ultimately forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Orange hued golden, sudsy white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing. Floral nose, slight tangarine
or mandarin. Definitely citrusy but not the citrus peel that is so common. This one is moreso like the
inside of some citrus type of fruit. Slight clove, both on nose and on the tongue. Soft sweetness, a
little flat on the tongue. Comes across as a very light Fruit Beer, mixed with either clove or some sort of
floralness. Slightly dry on the finish. Not half bad, certainly comes across as real fruit and not a fake

Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Orange blossom and lemon aroma, reminiscent of sorachi hops. Hazy amber, with floaties, medium yellow head. Orange peel flavor from beginning to end, but finishes tart like a cumquat, but not as sour. Refreshing and tasty. Very unique.
