3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
