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.

Poured into a taster showing very low filtration, a dense/cloudy honey with dried apricot in appearance, sparse white foam around the edges. The nose shows very subtle dried apricot. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. A lot of light tart steel tank/copper notes. Light malt backbone to support the beer but generally not a lot except a simple English style pale ale. Personally, I find nothing to dislike about this beer. In terms of Japanese craft beer, this is surprisingly competent.

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 (384) - 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.
