3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with thin head. Bread in the nose, balanced smooth and soft on the palate. Not much bitterness or carbonation. Not my favourite hop so the flavour not great for me.

Cold bottle. This cost £11…what was I thinking? Maybe I was drunk at the time. Anyway, it’s a nice beer - very different. Honey, spice, sake, whisky, vanilla. Reminds me of an Innis and Gunn beer, just 10 times the price and not quite as nice. Looks really good though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.55l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a cloudy golden yellow one, absolutely packed with particles and a small light bubbly top. Really fruity on the nose with lots of citrus, grape and some cat pee. A bit "old" perhaps but nice enough. It’s average on the carbonation with a soft oily mouthfeel. Nice flavors. Well hopped, packed with the same citrus found in the aroma. A bit sharp, bitter almost zesty sting. Both taste and flavor almost likely squeezed through a juice-press after they have made un-sugared lemonade. Nice within a boring genre. 06.02.2013

Hatachino Nipponia Golden Ale is definitely a quality beer. Nice cloudy wheat pour with a pillowy head. Aroma is pleasantly yeasty. Taste is a bit sour with a slight alcohol bite. A mild bitterness mellows it all out. Nipponia Golden ale is an overall pleasant brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the Bergen Tasting Crew. Has a bit unclear golden straw yellow colour with a small grey-white head. Sweet aroma of pale malt, hay, cirtus, some hops and spices. Sweet is also the flavour along with some pepper and more citrus and lime. There’s some sweet corn too, and a nice hoppy touch in the end. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light to medium bitterness. Feels fresh and is an okay golden ale with a nice hoppy touch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a hazy straw-hued body with a small white head. Nose is citrusy lime and straw tones, honey, herbs and hints of lemon. Very inviting. Taste is floral citric herbal tones, lemon zest, lime, hints of straw. Very refreshing and nice. Smooth and soft body with medium carbonation. A straight up delicious golden ale (which is a genre demanding a lot for me to score it high).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque gold with foamy white head, that dissipates fairly quickly. Basement, citrus, caramel, biscuit. Moderately sweet and bitter. Full bodied, a little crisp with smooth undertones. Ok.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
550 ml. Bottle purchased for take away from Brewdog Camden. This spend some time in the cellar, so I assume that this is the 2011 Version. Bright golden with spotty white head. Smell is sweet cheese from the sorachi ace, less blue chess in this one just sweeter yellow cheese, butter in a good way, not from infections etc. golden fields of barley, sweet sugar summer fruit. Sweet yellow cheese Sorachi ace taste blended with some floral touches, sweeter punch fruits with sugar, white wine grapes, fields of barley, soft fruits, good way butter, light bitter spice in the back. Appears to have lost some potency and body with age but still very lovely and original.
