On tap at the Ginger Man, NYC. Very light in texture, with a distinctly "Japanese"/sake flavour likely owing to possible aging in sake casks, or some other involvement. Was the highlight of a day out beer tasting in the City. Probably ridiculously expensive in bottles.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from Vesuvio, Darlington. A cloudy red beer with a bit of white froth. Nice fruity fresh hop flavour. caramel, red fruit, plenty of sweetness and pine hops. Really nice with the alcohol well hidden.

HKdIPA (195) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Sunday's Grocery at Jay's. Super malty aroma with an herbed sweet potato smell. Taste is similar - tastes like food, not in the usual salty/savory way that some beer can. More herbs and, again, sweet potato. Odd, but not offensive. Wouldn't get again though I don't think.

CacheManyHose (154) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Smells very malty, a bit raisiny/vegetal. Musty and sweet/thick like cough syrup. Tastes malty, a bit of spice, sweet and fizzy, almost like a musty carbonated orange juice. Lots of flavour but too much unbalanced sweet/vegetal flavour for me.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
This bottle was named Commemorative Ale 2013 and 8% abv sold at a central market in austin, tx. The real description is the same as the commercial description, and its good though a bit of a more desert-like beer.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 25, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en la madrugada del 08-06-2014, en el momento. (Cons pref antes de 02-2015). Color ámbar oscuro con espuma blanca no muy persistente. Aromas ligeros y finos de maltas ligeramente dulces y bastante especiadas. Cuerpo medio a fuerte con 8 vol que se notan en todo momento. Paso por boca no muy denso y generando espuma. Sabor también maltosos con cierto dulzor de frutas pasas, higos... y un montón de especias (se nota el cilantro al inicio seguido de la nuez moscada), todo ello bastante refinado u acabando con un amargo casi inexistente. Bastante buena, sabores finos maltosos, especiados destacados, para repetir.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Rating #1034 - March 22, 2014 - Pregaming for Oilers at Chateau Gab with some Japanese #geekbeer. Slight carbonated head burbles from a brown black pour. Lots of herbal-spicy aroma here - spruce needles, clove, burnt sugar, toasted fennel, rosemary, cardamom. Palate is light citrus from the spruce needles, more sweet notes from the fennel and roast malts, delicate bitterness. Really quite tasty.

Commemorative Ale 2014, 8.0%. Bottle dated 10/14. Wheaty and yeasty aromas along with orange peel on the nose. Reddish bronze body with moderate off-white head. Floaters. Immediate sourness with gentle sweetness and bitterness. Full-bodied and chewy with high carbonation. Long finish with gentle spice.

Lowenbrau (1864) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2014
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 04-06-2014.
In short: a spicy ale.
Pours some hazy amber with frothy off white head. Moderate head retentio, poor lacing. Spicy aromas, lots of them. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste folows the nose, medium bitterness, malty, caramel and then lots of spices: coriander, cinnamon, etc. Maybe a bit saturating.
