2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy brown with a foamy, white head that fades quickly to a mottled bubbly film. Sparse lacing. Nose is malty with notes of ginger. Taste is a bit bitter with an unpleasant skunky, astringent aftertaste like its cut with soju. Perhaps I've got a bad bottle. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Overall, not a fan.

Bottle poured into a hotel glass. Hazy dark amber with off-white head. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, ginger, candied fruit. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, ginger. Medium body with a dry finish. Wasn’t expecting the dark fruit so that was kind of strange.

330ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Rich orange copper in colour with a thin but lasting beige head, good lacing. The aroma is of soap, light sweetness, some gingerbread, candy. The flavour is of citrus, a fair amount of ginger, grassy, good amount of sugary sweetness. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with some ginger spice. I like this, quite refreshing stuff. Well done.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Intense viscous beginning. Dark malt, spicy ginger, not easy to drink. The spicy ginger is there, but not sharp. The malt covers it well, but is for me a bit too present. The aftertaste is a mix of sweetish malt and spicy ginger with a nice fine bitterness. For me a bit too intense sweetish-malty. The ginger is too much in the background....

Another great Hitachino beer. Pours a cloudy orange. Smells of ginger and spices. Tastes great, lots of ginger all around, with a fruitiness and herbiness as well. Paired with tuna poke, beer is a bit crisper. Had in the bottle.
