3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ West Riding Rooms, Dewsbury. Slightly hazed reddish-brown, but more red with a thick frothy head. With its carbonation it feels a little lager like, although it’s slightly more ’ale’ in its texture. Its chocolate is mostly evident in its aroma, although it’s there in small quantities in its taste.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber-brown body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, nuts, roasty tones, grass and hints of pine. Taste is nougat, grass, nuts, burnt sugar and hints of paper. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Pretty standard amber without any real flaws, nor merits.

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.

More of these Japanse beers please. Thanks to the great guys at the Brewdog Camden bar. (Sample glass)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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