Draught at Craftsman. 5% abv, seems like a pretty improved version. Rich yuzu all the way without being too cloying, juicy mouthfeel, notes of candy and lime peel, quite refreshing and enjoyable as long as you like this fruit.

Tap at Yellow APe. PRetty pale yellow color, closing in on pastel. Very big, fresh yuzu nose. Quite nice fruit character. Flavor also is pretty much just yuzu. A bit too light in body and flavor, and tasting nothing like beer. Nice refreshing summer drink though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from Tanakaya @ Meijro. Pours pale yellow, slight haziness but on the clear side. Small head that is gone in seconds. Aroma is very citrusy, just as smelling some kind of lemon drink. A sweet note of honey and some yuzu aromatics as well. Doesn’t really smell like beer. First taste has a bit of carbonation and maybe a pinch of malts - but other than that it feels like watery yuzu lemonade. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a tasty lemonade, doesn’t just feel like beer. Aftertaste rather dry, has a bit of malts and yuzu peels. On a hot day that would be good drink to have - but not really as a beer.
