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.

Tyche (5) - seoul, SOUTH KOREA - APR 21, 2015 does not count
35cl can. Pours deep amber color with beige head. Aroma of caramel and fruity hops. Taste is light sweetness and medium bitterness. medium body, low carbonation and dry finish. There is a comment ’BITTER & SWEET’ on the can. It is literally true.

Can from Food & Company in Gakugei-Daigaku. Malty aroma (caramel and butterscotch) with hints of fruit on the nose. Taste is very malt forward with hints of prune and raisin. Sweet on the palate. Tart finish. I prefer their Komugi beer.

czlowiekwiadro (350) - 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.

biirusaikou (981) - - 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 (2865) - 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.
