Light orange, small white head. Raisins, white bread, herbal, interesting. Mild bitterness, medium carbonation. In between of an IPA and flavourful Belgian white, or something. Bit hun thin, though. More of these Japanse beers please. Thanks to the great guys at the Brewdog Camden bar. (Sample glass)

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2012
On keg at The BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a dark amber colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and chocolate. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice.

Palme (3015) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with The tasting Crew. This is a light cloudy dark amber-red one with a nice small islandy off-white top. Smells quite nice with a dark sweet caramel, some red berries and fruity hops. Really nice taste on this. Itís caramelly sweet, lotís of dry grassy bitterness. Light dry in the mouth all the way, and itís average to soft on the carbonation with a light both dry and oily mouthfeel. Quite elegantly balanced. Some hints of sweet licorice in the aftertaste. Could easily drink this again. 18.10.2012

TimE (2978) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2004
Dark brown color with an off white head. The nose is balanced with caramel malt and cascade hops. The mouth starts hoppy then huge caramel malts come in and then finally the hops come back at the end. Like most of Hitachino nest beers, really well balanced.

JohnRMurdoch (2974) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Unexpected dark brown collour with a yellowish foamy head. Hoppy chocolate caramel aroma. Hop & chocolate flavour. Quite smooth. Not a typical amber ale.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog Online,Paired with pizza. More ruby-brown than amber with a fluffy tan head. Lemon and dusty cupboards on the nose, its well carbonated, quite smooth in the mouth with toffee and chocolate notes up front, followed by some slight citrus hops and a touch of black malt astringency. Enjoyable but more of a brown ale.

jonno (2146) - JAPAN - MAY 23, 2009
A solid amber. One of those beers that would be good to introduce your macro loving friend to the world of good beer. Pours a beautiful amber and has a decent nose of thick malts. THe mouthfeel is light to medium and it has a a solid if slightly boring taste. As it warms the caramel becomes apparent (diacetyl?). Smooth and easy to drink, just not that complex
