COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an absolute staple to the craft beer world. A crystal clear copper colored beer with rich bitterness and noble hops for a citrus aroma accompanied by pale malts and a light caramel like sweetness for balance. Mouth feel is smooth with a mild aftertaste.

At Brimmer Box as part of their tasting set. It is slightly darker than their Golden Ale. It has a maltier body, more hoppy aroma and taste. I think it is a great pale ale for someone new to craft beer. More of a gateway beer than one for a someone who already drinks lots of craft. The nicest of the 3 beers I tried in my taster set. Brimmer reminds me of Rokko in Kobe, possibly playing it safe for Japanese palates but their beers were more consistent than Rokko’s. All 3 were quite drinkable just light on flavor for the style.

Westkyoto77 (441) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 30, 2013
Draught. Dark amber. Medium carbonation. Nose of faint hops, hay fruit. It is really restrained- you can tell that they want it get solid fundamentals down- but as others have said, it’s not really adventurous. Easy on the hops is good, but you have to make up for it somewhere else. Not bad, but not their best.

Amber/copper colour, small gold head. Aroma lots of malt, bit spicy, touch of grassy hops. Taste is quite bitter, malty again, gingerbread with little bit of citrus.

Solid pale - but seems like the stings been taken out for the Japanese market. Smooth, drinkable and well made, but like elevator music - it’s just there, not really doing too much .Could see Macro lovers being weaned on to craft through this kind of stuff, but I’ll take something slightly more adventurous.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2012 Draught at Tadg’s. Deep copper color. Somewhat faint, grassy nose, pepper, minerals, earthy caramel. Nice bitterness in the mouth, good grassy hops, earthy, light citrus. Solid malt, bready but not too much caramel. Orange, pepper, big bitter finish. Light, crisp, good body. A bit simple, but perfectly crafted, with great balance and drinkability.
