4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,35 l can. Pours nice light amber with a small head. I love the aroma! I guess this is one of the hoppiest aromas I’ve encountered with a lager so far. But well, this one is supposed to be “india pale lager”. Aroma is fresh, some fruits, melon and freshly cut grass. Taste has two layers, from one side it is mellow and soft, just like eating some marshmellows (altbeit not so sweet) – but it has a bitter kick inside that takes over when the aftertaste comes.Aftertaste is long, dry and bitter. Body is satisfying, not too full but not too watery either. I guess Coedo has been able here to do something pretty special – using a very common lager as a base to create something special. Thumbs up!

Pours an amber colour with some lacing. Smells quite citrusy with a slight caramel taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Oto Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours light golden amber with a slight white head. Aroma is light fruit - melon? grape? Med body or nearly. Flavor is grapey with a touch of citrus, plus breadiness. Certainly much tastier than the average sweet Vienna.

Light nutty bread aroma. Caramel malt, fruity hop flavors, nice bitter finish. Enjoyable hoppy amber brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle arrived chilled direct from brewery, drinking now whilst writing the following day.
Coedo state that kyara has six malts. Unfortunately the possible malt complexity are overshadowed by an uninteresting hop bitterness, that whilst not unpleasant neither stands out or compliments the malts.
Overall a very drinkable beer, but as usual rather dull and un-interesting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A can from Eki-marche in Osaka station at 280 yen. Drunk on the train home staright from the can. A subtle dark malt aroma, malts then some hops. a pretty nice smell. The flavor is a bit too one dimensional hop bitterness over a malt backbone, kind of a rough finish. Not bad but it could be better with a bit of tweaking. Ok but fairly average, the top quality ingredients don’t really gel together so much... as it warmed up it mellowed out and the malts stepped up to counterbalance the hops and the roughness became more subdued. I think you should drink this in the 12-15C range for best results.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Yamaya. Pretty deep colour. Nutty, hoppy, caramel aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, carbonation pretty good. Crisp finishing, almost like a mild IPA. Good stuff.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a perfectly clear dark amber with a thin sudsy white head. I detect some noble hops, bread and some light fruit (pear?). Taste is fairly restrained, slightly sweet at the front end with some grassy hops, slight bitterness and a clean finish. A bit one note, but a very drinkable lager nonetheless.
