Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
Clear copper with little brown head. Aroma is lots of tropic fruit and grass and some malty bread. Taste is fresh citrussy sourness with some hoppy bitterness. A little dust in the finish but more of the aroma hops. Still good.

visionthing (4734) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 22, 2016
35cl can from somewhere in Japan. Pours clear dark caramel brown with a fluffy, but fairly fast dissipating head. Malty and caramelly with mild roasty notes. Fairly sweet and malty, but a fairly nice bitterness in the finish. Quite okay!

mrjez (440) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 UPDATE 2016: Pours a deep amber-brown with smallish off-white head, a tiny bit of lacing. Decent amber ale malt sweetness, hint of caramel, mild pine hop. Flavour of caramel malt, raspberry, pine, gets watery in the backend, low bitterness. The body is just too thin, a touch sweet, and no components assert themselves. Still, it’s the only half-decent budget amber I know in Japan, and good every now and then.

mansquito (5206) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2015
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.
