3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. 650 yen for a half-pint at Qbrick. 5% a clear star gold pour with a mild lemon aroma. The taste is like a lemonade alcopop, a lemon lager for summer. Nice but not as smooth as it could be. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Qbrick. Lemony, zesty aroma. Very cloudy, light honey color. Heavy citrusy initial / mild bittering emerges in mid / finish is clean and refreshing. Thin, and a bit spritzy. Good. Light and flavorful. Would be wonderful in the summer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at iBrew. Pale blonde, bit hazy, small white bubbly head. Aroma is light citrus. Lemon and bit of orange. Taste is nice, subtle citrus, orange and lemon, slight sourness, bit floury but just a hint. Nice and crisp. Bitter citrus finish. Very easy drinking. Maybe a touch thin, but definitely a thirst quencher.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg, BeerFest Daisen, 23/09/11. Pale translucent haze like a wit. Some floral spiky hop taste, farmyard even, lime juice, ganja notes. Hops at last. Apparently some kind of crazy Japanese, lemon-like fruit. Really decent squeezed lemon notes, slight greenery, soapy lemon and lime taste flecked with biscuit. Late contender for Beer of The Festival, and a skilled blend of pith and hop. Too fizzy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
cloudy white color. Sweet pugnant citrusy nose. Sweet mouth with lots of Mikan notes, but not balanced with enough acidity and should be a bit drier. Nice refreshing beer, but could use a bit of tweaking.

Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival, Osaka, 2011.
Light, pale yellow color. Nice ciotrus aroma. Nice, fresh, taste, not sweet, good sour edge. Decent enough beery lager flavor backing up the fruit.
