teddybeer (2810) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2014
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.

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
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!

johndoughty (4464) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
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.

TBone (14272) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottled @SBWF 2013
Clear copper-amber color, steady white head. Woody, earthy hoppyness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Woody hoppyness in the flavor. Dry although has some fruityness.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
8/12/2010. From bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Malty aromas with hay, bread, grass, yeast and light fruit. Good bitterness from the hops. Very refreshing.

Sebilinz (1137) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 7, 2013
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 .

oh6gdx (23030) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, caramelly and a bunch of citrus to it as well. Flavour is fruity, mild rice as well as some strange sweetness. Pleasantly balanced, but would probably suit a food table better than being drunk on it’s own.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 25, 2013
65cl bottle from Redmonds. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Malt nose. Uncomplex. Sweet malt flavour lots of butterscotch. Light body. Soft carbonation. No hop character, maybe the bottle is old.

FatPhil (11008) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2013
550ml bottle (Ales By Mail) - shared by vastactiv - thanks!
Golden, slightly hazy, persistent head. Spicy rice pudding aroma. Total sorachi ace taste. Nice full palalte, smooth. Soapy. Too soapy for me. But I did like how it feels, even if I really dislike the coconut.
