2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap as Arrows Ale at Bj League basketball game in Takamatsu. Fairly bland nose, some light citrus, the merest suggestion of hops. Body was decent, with everything mild and rounded, but the flavours seem much more muted than Brimmer's other beers. Not a bad one, just a gentle introduction to ale for the uninitiated perhaps.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light hoppy aroma. Fruity malt flavor, mild hops, and not much else. A quite mild local ale, likely a better fit for Japanese palate than a classic Californian ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
At Brimmer Box in Omotesando as part of their tasting set. It pour a clear straw color with a very very slight fruity malt aroma. It is a super light ale with a bit of fruit, some sweet malt and a little bitterness. It has a nice crisp dry finish, you could drink this all day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Brimmer Beer Box. Pale clear golden colour. Small white head. Aroma wheat, honey, bit of lemon maybe, slightly hoppy. Taste similar, grainy, lemony, slightly bitter finish. Little bit fruity too. Nice enough, but not really one of my favourite styles.
