A good all round well made beer - par for the course with Brimmer. No distinguishing characteristics, just a moderately hoppy, perfumey big pale. Weighty body and quaffable.

Draught at the 2013 Kyoto Craft Beer Festa. Nice citrus nose with good, soft caramel and earth. Orange-amber color. Nice earthiness to the flavor, caramel, bread, bitter hops, nicely balanced. A good of vegetables.

At Brimmer Box as part of their taster set. A nice darker ale which poured with a thin off-white head. It has a malty sweet body with a clean mildly bitter finish.

Tap at Popeye. Golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is not so strong. Slightly citrus hoppy but not so much else. Taste is nice. Decent maltiness, some spice. Slight hoppy bitterness at finish. Pretty easy drinking. Crisp.
