Golden yellow color out of the can with a short lived white head. Nose of citrus rind and alcohol. I didn’t notice the abv on the can. Lots of pine and dried orange peel over crusty bread and that alcohol. Interesting beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from World Bee Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Pear and peach nose, along with alcohol (not fumes, exactlly, but a definite presencein the aroma). Clear orange-tinted gold straw color, thin white head. Caramel, grapefruit, and again a decided alcohol note. Malty, but thin. Bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Seems bigger than it really is -- light body, thin flavors make the alc. stand out a bit too much.
