Westkyoto77 (540) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Sweet aromas of fruity hops. Straight from the bottle, so I couldn't judge the look, but it had a velvety mouthfeel and good carbonation. Really quite fruity, with berries, toffee and cream over a nice malty base. A delight. Solid as ever, Hitachino.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Ravfarget. Tynt lag med hvitt skum. Lavt karbonert. Smaker frukt,vannmelon,coctailbær,malt,karamell,humle. En merkelig øl, men god

RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Strong coloured amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is quite dry with a hint of bitterness, the flavour is very bitter (rather like an IPA) and refreshingly dry with a hint of spice. Overall a nice strongly bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep plum aroma. Caramel malt, peach, floral hops, bittersweet finish. Elegant and well-rounded amber ale with quite a Belgian character.

Idiosynkrasie (4088) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Very nice, clear, ruby reddish dark amber colour with average, frothy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney herbal hoppy aroma, caramel malty background with a nuttily touch. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty with a nuttily touch, piney, and herbal hoppy overtones, a fruity touch of cherries.

jmgreenuk (4956) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2013
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep chestnut brown colour with a frothy white head and loads of lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit yeast and spice. The flavour is medium bitter with some fruit, peppery spice and liqourice on the palate. The finish is smooth and bitter with a little malt. A super beer I must say.

chimpgibbon (329) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from the Beerhive. Nice malty but crisp amber beer from Hitachino. Medium lingering head, malt on the nose and a bit of fruit - raspberry? Medium body with fizz and creaminess. Medium bitter taste with nice hop finish. Bit malty for me but good.

AshtonMcCobb (2919) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark amber with a nice red hue. The nose has delicate caramel malt with just a hint of something red and fruity. The taste has sweet red malt with a biscuity bitterness just following it up, something creamy in there too. The palate is just about medium bodied with a creamy texture and a lovely balanced biscuity finish. Overall, great beer - well put together.

mzaar (1736) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013
Flaska @ Nami, Varberg. Det är godis att sätta näsan till glaset med alla de tropiska frukter som ryms där. Karamell ligger och lurar i bakgrunden. Smaken är nästan lika bra, med banan, grape, äpple, apelsin, karamell. Finns en alkoholton, som av sherry, som tar ner betyget ett steg.

gyllenbock (5013) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at The Flying Elk, April 2013. Dark amber with a large white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light hops and some nuts. The taste was soft with some hops, fruit, caramel and something that reminded of chocolate.
