55 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Ski. Pours amber with a medium offwhite head. Aroma is fresh, with herbal and some tropical fruits.Flavour is quite sweet, but it is nicely balanced with a good good malt base and a good amount of funky hops. Fruity taste and a long clean finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium white head. Hazy yellow body with visible floaties. Earthy
caviar (??!?) aroma with salty eggy notes. Dry earthy caviar taste
with papery fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry
earthy plasticky spicy aftertaste with herbal fruity notes. Deeply
odd, but not actively unpleasant. Don’t think I’ll ever have this one
again. (0.55l bottle, wine monopoly web order.)

Tasting @ Salon del Gourmet. Golden colour with a white head with short duration. Aroma has notes of sweet bread, good maltiness, and citrus notes. Flavor is slightly sweet with a good proportion of malts, jinger hints witha good presence of alcohol and bready notes. The final is sweet with a good duration.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft to a plastic cup @ Nippon Craft Beer Festival 2014. Pours quite clear, amber with a bit of foam. Aroma is nice, herbal. Sorachi? Tropical but not sweet fruits. Taste - it is crazy! Nicely sweet and has some curious fruits. From the tropics, I am sure. Malt base is strong but it has some powerful hop aromas on top, mellowed by a lagering process. Feels quite sweet and enjoyable. A big pils - wonderful!

Bottle. Another good one from this brewery-they really have opened up my eyes to Japanese beer.Orange appearance and a small head. A combination of unusual flavours including maltiness make this a very interesting one. Aftertaste is fruity making for a complex and interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle dark golden body with white not very long lasting head. Aroma is malt bread some coconut? Taste is coconut and malt aftertaste is slightly bitter some malt interresting brew. As someone has written before this would be ideal for a food pairing .
