Golden color. Flower nose with an excellent buscuity malty nose. Well balanced, nice hoppy mouth. Very nice golden ale with a bit more punch and depth over your typical English summer blonde. Fairly aggressive bitter finish.

Orange color, thin almost nonexistent foam, typical overwhelming coconut/pinacolada/litchi flavor of sorachi ace both in nose and taste/aftertaste. Lightly bitter. Bizarre beer, not my fav.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Hitachino Nest Ancient Nipponia) Bottle 550 ml from torriman, thanks Victor!
Served into annenglish pint glass, ABV 6.5%. I wonder if this version is really not made anymore, fairly easy to get in Spain apparently and the BBD is February 2015.
Deep orange golden colour on the body, two full fingers of white thick head, with very good retention, leaving light lacing behind.
Very malty aroma, sweet with lots of sugar, but also some wine notes which make it not that bad after all.
The taste though has some hops, sweet and sugary malts as the aroma implied, alcohol, homemade sweet white wine.
Medium thick body, nicely carbonated.
A bit weird this beer, smells old but then taste has enough hops. All in all pleasant to drink though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
The appearance of Euro-pils and then the dusty, grainy aroma that walks hand in hand with it. The flavour may seem a little richer on the grain but there is no additional contribution of interesting fruit or herbal notes. A but dusty on the palate and similarly unrewarding. Japanese Eurolager. Who’d’ve thunk it.
