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 .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.55 l, courtesy of VastActiv, 20130914) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, ginger, hint of coconut and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, coconut, herbalness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had coconut, fruitiness, sweetness and bitterness. The beer may have been good but the horrible sorachi ace...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz ($5): Pours a light orange with a white head. Aroma is grain, yeast, a hint of citrus, and some bready like stuff. Taste is nice. It is kind of flowery or perfumy. Subtle. Mellow, subdued hops. Nice mild aftertaste. Very well-balanced. Tiny bit of sweetness. Refreshing. I think the taste improves on the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Bottle dated March 2013. Lightly hazed gold with a short white head. Lightly estery nose, some rice hulls and grain husks and saccharine and some vegetable hop aroma like kale and maybe some turnip.Fruity in the nose too, but more like dried pineapple and lychee pieces. Malt is a bit rough. Light body. Watery in the finish. Smells like wallpaper glue after it opens. That all seems to evaporate away when this is paired with rich avocado and grilled chicken.
