Amber-gold in color, softly floral in aroma and roundly malty in flavor, Baird Numazu Lager strikes a perfect balance between complexity and drinkability. The smooth lager character is accentuated by a long period (four months) of post-packaging cold conditioning. The pinpoint natural carbonation that is achieved during this long period of conditioning and maturation ensures that the last sip is a fresh and effervescent as the first.

From old notes, on tap at Lingua, early 2015? Nice amber-gold with a tight foamy head and decent lacing. Aroma is light on, crackers, grassy, a touch of freshly cut flowers. Malt notes dominate the flavour, bready and slightly earthy, gentle hop. Medium carbonation and a light-medium body, soft bitter feel. Not bad.

kidmartinek (4385) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle at Firebird in causeway bay. Rich golden color. Very Grassy pils malt aroma. Strong pils taste like saaz. Holds a white head. Lots of pleasant bitterness and a crisp finish.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bov (11500) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2016
from Erzbierschof - hazy dark amber-orange beer with no head retention; discrete fruity and flowery aroma; solid but subtle carbonation; a fair malt backbone, quite dry and long grainy and flowery finish where the fruity tones remain behind

jredmond (7176) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Sampled at The Festival 2015 in St. Petes with Vinny. Pours a clear golden body with soapy lace. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with notes of caramel, grain, cereal, soft wheat and a touch of sweetness. Decent lager.

R4N5H (636) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2015
33cl bottle, purchased at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam and poured into a long stemmed tulip glass on 03-Oct-2015. Hazy golden colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma if cereal, floral pine and malt. Medium body and carbonation. Light caramel, cereal and hops. A good bittersweet hoppy lager.

beer-yum (1208) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 6, 2015
Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Fruity rather than hoppy balance with a nice clean finish. Interesting taste profile for a larger - and better for it (to my mind).

anstei (935) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Beautiful amber & copper color. Very drinkable indeed, with a rather malty palate and taste, almost a bit dusty. Still a very good amber lager though!

PhillyCraft (5222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Stoked to see a sessionable beer on at the Festival especially some lager beer. Clearish golden with medium white head. Notes of light bubblegum hop, caramel malt, corn, and clean grain. Nice lager

maekchu (3249) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, yeast, and a bready maltiness. Hazy dull light amber/brown, fat fluffy head. Generous fruitiness, bready, light caramel. Gets rather sweet in mid palate. I don’t get any of the citrus notes that others have mentioned. Seems more ale-like than lager. Tasty stuff.
