Pours coppery brown with a small head.
Sweet potato is quite prominent in the aroma, but also some sweet malt. very interesting.
Lots of sweet potato as a flavour too. A hit of booze ruins things a little though. Again, quite sweet.
Body feels a bit flat, need a lot more carbonation to cut the sweetness.

Shared by drabmuh, the Jedi ticker. Thanks Matt!
The beer is amber colored with no head or lacing. The aroma is sweet, offering brown bread, biscuits, caramel, grain. Smells like a sweet adjunct lager. Malt, sweet potato and sweet breads. Virtually no carbonation leads to a light, watery feel on the palate. Overall, this was fun to try but not something I would have again.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. This one went pretty quickly. The beer was clear and deep red brown. A smallish off white head. This beer was rich in malt with light spices and the sweet potatoes. It resembled an Oktoberfest and a pumpkin ale. The spices were light but flavors were not far off. Not a bad beer at all from Japan.

Tap at Ibrew Ginza. Rich red/dark amber colour. Small golden head. Aroma sweet and bit spicy. Taste is sweet and fruity. Dark fruit, plums? Sugary and a touch vinous. Bit of cinnamon and some vegetable, the sweet potatoes, I guess. Not bad.
