2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Didn’t do much for me. Soft and dull - abit grassy. A light phenolic yeast spices things up, but really nothing to write home about, especially with some of the fantastic hand pump beers circulating round the taprooms these days.

Popcorn looming - a perfect beer to crush at high speed. Champagne grapes, lime, peaches, sharp artificial honey, lemon cookies. This got a whole hell of a lot better once I let it open up. Lime Pop Shoppe. The rate is light. Lime, zip, maybe a hint of licorice, orange. Mellow and a quick drinking brew. Time for scotch!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose is very phenolic, big peppery and clove-like characters along with doughy Belgian yeast and lemon notes
Lots of lemon as a flavours too as well as the doughy yeast. Also some sweet light malt and soft pear notes. Finishes very dry.
Carbonation is too high.
Very nice, refreshing stuff!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
To my tastes very similar to the Rising Sun PA. Well made but ultimately lean and almost under-friuted. Some slate and pepper and very quaffable. A subtle beer.

Keg at Harajuku taproom. Slightly cloudy pale yellow colour with small white head. Aroma is yeasty, bit Orval like but not as funky, and a bit saison like. Also a touch of lemon and orange. Taste is nice and fruity and ultra drinkable. Feels very pleasant in the mouth. Slightly bittter finish. Lovely!

Bottle. Pours a light golden amber with pillowy whit ehead. Nice lacing as it falls away. Ctirus hop aromas with light biscuity malt in support. Resiny bitter dry finish with some sourness. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4.7% at Tadg’s draft pint 1100 yen with 200 yen off during happy hour. Great honey gold color with a piney + citrus hop aroma over a malty base. The taste is thin bodied, a bit watery but it has a bitting bitter start, biscuity middle & lingering sweet fruity finish. Pretty good, it would benefit from a fuller mouthfeel though... As it warms up it gets a bit of spiciness to it, nice.
