3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straight from TOKYO :D 33cl in teku. Pours a medium, creamy and dense, light beige/orange head; nice amber to ruby colour, cloudy. Smells malty, with some sort of great "candied//sweet" ginger notes, but also very floral, nuts and some orange citrus too. That’s quite complex and very parfumed, remebers "Grand Marnier" notes for some aspects. Tastes japanese ginger (like the rose coloured one you eat with tradtional sushi), caramel malts, cane sugar, spices, candied zest; medium to high sweetness, small to medium bitterness. Nice and delicate carbonation, medium bodied, slick and slight sticky. Malty, citrusy, and with that very particular japanese ginger leaves aromas and notes. You can see it as a sort of amber ale + ginger and some spiced notes, doesn’t seem 8%. Smelly, tasty, and quite like anything I’ve ever tasted before

Ok smell with a hint of ginger. Wanted it to taste more like ginger beer than it did. More cloudy than I remembered and didn't have as strong of a ginger flavor as I remembered

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33 cl.
Clear amber, off-white head. Light caramel malt, ginger and cinnamon. Sweet and spicy.
First thought was that a 33 cl. should be split three ways, not two as we did. But it grows on you, and I ended up wanting more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A copper orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong gingery aroma, then a fruity hoppiness comes through that leads into a light malty element. Dry mouthfeel. A zesty ginger led taste, the fruity hoppiness enhances the spiciness. Then a syrupy malt flavour comes through that tempers the zesty spiciness. The finish is ginger led and malty.
