3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Served in glass cone sitting in block of glass at Hyatt Tokyo. Nice aromas, not over hoppy. Flavorful, especially when you compare it with the big label beers the people next to you are drinking, but a little unbalanced. Good finish, quite satisfying.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at 1020. Pretty brown with lace. Light malty nose, with some nice earthy hops. Malty caramel flavor with peppery hops, smooth and full, and a tingly finish. Decent, though not very interesting. Supposedly barrel aged for a time, and it seemed so.
