3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small white head. Almost clear yellow (with orange tints) colored body.
Aroma and flavour are hoppy with some fruits and floral tones. Nothing crazy, but a good drinker with this heat.
Aftertaste is herbal, light hop and fruit tints and some floral tints.
Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel and medium bodied.

Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake Taniguchi). Light yasty nose, rounded sweet fruity nose. Dull light amber/brown color. Fruity initial, dates, some citrus, small tropical fruit notes, light hopping in mid and final. Thin body. Looks dirty and tastes a bit unrefined. But quite malty and good in rude way.

Tap at Mel’s. Aroma lots of caramel, pale golden colour. Taste is really restrained in way of hoppiness, lots of caramel though. Good beer, but could use more hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from bottle shop. Pours slightly cloudy, minimal head, and deep golden in colour. Strong mandarine and grape aroma. Some malt bread components come through, almost toast. Finishes a bit sweet for me, could perhaps be balanced with slightly higher bittering. Nice beer though.

Dark blond colour. Thin head. Low carbonation. Very malty aroma, some fructose and caramel too. Malty flavour but with perhaps too much fruity sweetness.
