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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served at room temp, itís a clear copper colour with a 2 finger head of foam.
Ginger and honey in the nose. Thereís another spice here, I reckon itís nutmeg. Nice aromas going on.
Ginger first, honey sweet flavours second, nutmeg brings up the rear. Sight hop bitterness here but that isnít really needed for me to like this brew.
Smooth smooth mouthfeel. Very creamy. Oh and the foam is long lasting and thereís awesome lacing.
In plain words, this is very good.

"from notes: Smells great, fresh cut ginger and other spices. subtle hops. Flavor nice as well, but the way too overcarbonated feel takes a touch off the flavor as well. Too bad, this would have been good. Maybe infected, who knows, but at $7, I likely wonít be trying again."

Aroma is primarily ginger. Appearance is a clear dark medium amber with a small 1/2 finger light tan head. Taste is a milky ginger muddiness with a slight bitter finish. Palate is average. Overall eh ... Iíd not recommend it.

Clear orange, no foam. Spicy aroma, ginger indeed. Taste of pepper, some jalepino, ginger again. Lasting ginger aftertaste. (Houston 201408)
