3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lighter amber colour, slightly hazy with a creamy tan head. Aroma is of caramel malt and light hop scents. Taste is a nice balance between mild sweetness and bitterness, which becomes slightly more bitter in the finish. Creamy on the palate, light-medium body and softer carbonation. A very enjoyable amber ale.

Can from Asahiya. Caramel nose, with some spicy hopping, citrus/pine mix. Hazy light reddish/amber color with a thick beige head and good lacing. Medium sweetish caramel initial, piney, a bit resiny even, woody, hearbal, some citrus, slightly dry and bitter finish. Medium body. Very satisfying. Unusual hopped-up amber.

Cloudy, frothy head. The aroma is woody hop, touch of citrus and fresh malt. Sweet, with a light citrus character. Balanced. Nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper pour with average head, but more than average lacing. Light malt, toffee aroma. Not the hoppiness you would expect from a pale ale. Taste is more malt, some caramel, mildly sweet, but not hoppy at all. Very close to an amber or brown ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful reddish brown, with a 2 finger light caramel head, strong retention. Smells fruity and slightly boozy. Really nice mouthfeel, hop heavy front that lingers and than fades into a caramel linger. Good beer

Pours a light amber with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus, sweet malt, and some caramel. Taste is a smooth malty and nice mild slight grapefruit hoppy finish. A very good Amber/Red ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
More of a pale with red ale notes than a true red ale. Keeping that in mind, this is good. Smooth for a red, which as a style sometimes are too assertive. This one is more mellow, and quite enjoyable.

Clearish amber under a thin rocky light beige head. Strong nose with a herbal piney hop note, a touch of lemon, and earthy caramalts. Lightish palate with boozy earthy esters, a earthy toast tone and a bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Taniguchi, 550 yen. An APA in a fantastic looking can. It pours a clear red color that lives up to the name. Atruly hoppy citrus nose with a bit of biscuit. The taste is nicely bitter, fruity, piney with a good dose of crisp biscuit from the malts and a somewhat malty spicy quality. Very nice, one of the best of the night.

A rich clear mahogany red pour with a short lasting full coarsely bubbled head. Citrus fruit hops jump out on the nose. Pine citrus malty and very nice; another solid beer HUB.
