Hidatakayama’s Pale Ale on tap at Takumiya. It pours a glowingly vibrant copper color with fruity pine needles aroma. The taste is clean caramel biscuit, grape and a light bitterness. More English than American but solidly done, not too sweet and well balanced. It grew on me and went down smooth.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle from 7-11 In Takayama, 04/14/2015. Clear light copper pour, healthy head with some residual lacing around the glass. Aroma of cereal grains, mild sweet notes, soft grassy hops with touch of citrus edge. Taste mild citrus sharpness up front, spicy grass with cereal malts in the finish. Light body. Suppose this was a fresh bottle, decent enough and better than expected.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2014
Tap at Craft Beer Server Land. Cloudy golden, not much head. Taste is citrusy, bit of biscuit, light bitterness. Aroma is malty, light hops. Perfectly nice if a little unexciting.

Silvan7 (1098) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 14, 2013
bottle from takayama market. bomba al luppolo. l aroma di luppoli è potente e piacevole. erbaceo, aromatico e pungente. colore ambra opaco schiuma bianca spumosa persistente ottimo lacing. gusto sbilanciato sul luppolo. difficile captare altro. forse un che di fruttato (mele?). attorciglia la lingua.finale astringente intensissimo e improvviso.

Dredd (812) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2012
Very nice, and not what one would expect from a Japanese microbrewer. Aroma is mainly light fruit and pour is an apricot amber with lingering head. The flavour is intially light apricot which then moves quickly to a pleasent bitter finish. Would classify this more as an American Pale Ale over an English style.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 20, 2011
Solid enough but fails to lift from what is a fairly large pack for this style. Mildly hoppy with some passionfruit but there’s a slightly "off" note that suggests the bottle wasn’t in the best condition. Relatively low carbonation for the style.
