3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Mild tropical fruit and some tingly citrus in the nose, with a little harsh tobacco like punches. Somewhat hazy deep straw color, small head. Light grass up front / hopping (and harshness) intensifies in mid palate -- it’s almost peppery / very mild hop traces in final. Thin-medium body, slightly scratchy and rough on the throat. Really tastes like a rye beer. Fruit notes are minimal. Okay.
