L: pours a deep amber red with smallish off-white head, a tiny bit of lacing.
S: decent amber ale malt sweetness, hint of caramel, hop and sugar.

Some Japanese store: Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is light caramel and mediocre amber ale smell (if you know, then you know, if not, then you don’t). Taste is old caramel and some nondeScript bitterness. Sugary aftertaste. Very mediocre.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Daiei in Himonya. Drank from the can. Light resiny pine aromas with faint caramel syrup. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Resin, piney flavors are faint but noticeable, also some grapefruit and a weird cardboard caramel that reminds me of a macro lager. Clean finish that is lightly dry. Refreshing I guess, but not much malt or hop character noticeable. Pretty bland.
