2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild fruity, hoppy floral aroma. Fruity malt, mild apple, then can feel the bitter goya, dry bitter finish. Starts ok with decent fruitiness but the goya twist quickly gets too overwhelming and dries the palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Maybe served too cold, a vegetable aroma. A slightly cloudy gold pour. The flavor is more peppery than I remember from the brewpub with less of the goya bitterness. A decent take on a lager & definitely something to try when you’re in Okinawa.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home. Very pale watery yellow colour. Thin white bubbly head that fades quite quickly. Aroma is grainy with a touch is something spicy and vegetable like. Some malty sweetness too. Taste is similar, couldn’t identify it as goya but there is definitely a vegetable taste, quite earthy and peppery. Little bit of lemon and grain there too but overwhelmingly vegetal. Finish is mildly bitter. An interesting concept and fairly easy to drink, but not sure I want it again.
