IslandHaole's rating

2.1
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, - NOV 8, 2010
(Can) A hazy orange/caramel color with a big rocky beige head. A very sweet nose, treacle, spun honey, cookie dough, with a hint of hoppy resin. Sweet, thin, a bit tinny. A disappointing effort from this otherwise solid brewery.

jeremytoni (2981) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2014
From a can poured a golden color with a small amount of head. Bitter light hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

czlowiekwiadro (215) - POLAND - MAY 24, 2014
zapach mleka i maślanych bułek, do tego lekkie drożdże. ładna, obfita piana, kolor bursztynowy, mocno zmętniony z dość brzydkimi frędzlami. w smaku słodko, znowu lekko maślany smak. niska goryczka i nasycenie. trochę jak maślane ciastka.

PotjeBier (1693) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2013
Backlog. Canned, enjoyed in 2008. Amber color, slightly hazy. Aroma’s: sweet malts, caramel malts, hints of sweet fruits. Flavor is light sweet, caramel. Light bodied, on the thin side. Finishes just slightly bitter-ish.

biirusaikou (679) - - SEP 7, 2013
Soap smell, then hint of caramel. Sweet malt, fruity hop, intense sour finish. Feels quite unbalanced, overly (sickly) sweet and sour.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2059) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2013
Can. 275 yen or so from Kyoto Isetan. Golden orange color with a ton of carbonation & a white fizzy head. A malty sweet aroma with a hint of caramel. Not too sweet though. The taste is a fairly well balanced malt forward pale ale sweet with a hint of tangy hop bite in the finish. Pretty refreshing actually but after having tons of American pale ales this is a completely different beast. Just thing of it as a regular ale & you won’t be so disappointed. Ok for when you want something malty & light but not too sweet.

Westkyoto77 (523) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 13, 2013
Can from Yamaya. Caramelly, fruity, hoppy nose. Fairly him body, medium carbonation. SomethIng unplaceable in the aftertaste. Too many things going on at once, not really balanced. Drinkable, but there are much better Japanese pale ales than this.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2012
Can from local Yamaya. Aroma: heavy on the yeast, also some ripe garbage. Cloudy orange-amber, kinda ugly, with a 1-cm tan head. Flavors are yeast initially, then it goes to rusty water. Thin-medium body. Pretty disgusting stuff
