3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I visited Japan last year to see my family. I wasn’t into craft beer then but had many Hitachino beers actually. Now I’m turning into a credit beer fanatic, I’m re-drinking them all over again. This one is okay. Not hoppy enough to my satisfaction but okay. Its pretty middle of the road.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 330ml. Pours dark golden-amber to copper, clear. Head is very tall, foamy and yellowish to beige. Gentle scent of hops and malt. Mouth fill is foamy and creamy with a very gentle carbonation. Tastes nicely bitter, just right, gently sweet, a little tart. Flavors of fruity hops, herbal hops, some toasted notes, very fruity, quite herbal, fruity acidity, sweet malt, quite complex. Really nice hop profile, with strong flavors. Very nice, well balanced, could use a slightly stronger carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Bue à la pression. C’est brun, ça mousse bien et ça perdure. Au nez c’est du caramel, en bouche aussi. C’est pas amer d’un pet, ça coule tout seul dans le gosier. Ça a un p’tit air de bière belge. Bref, c’est sympa tout ça.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Hazy amber-orange colour with large white head, good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, herbs and malt, something else I’m not sure about possibly wood from the Cedar cask. Taste is hoppy citrus and earthy malty, caramel notes, bready, pine. Bitter hop finish. Little bit different from a typical IPA, nice, interesting.
