3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. Iki pours a light clouded orange body with a massive and fluffy white head. Aroma is low with notes of bitter hops, citrus and some peach. Light-bodied and average carbonation on this one. Flavors are not bad at all. Mild malty with some nice sweet and fruity notes. Honey and herbs. I have always thought that this was just another Asian pale-lager, but this is actually a drinkable beer. Ends with a lasting herbal aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one surprised me positively. I expected it to be a nice try. Very tasty beer with good hops and surprisingly well fitting flavor of sweet green tea with a slice of sweet lemon.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrus, carrots, green tea and yeast. Flavour of yeast, citrus, pale malts, wheat and some herbs. Gets better when it warms up a bit. Slick mouthfeel and a dry, mild fruity finish. All in all a very weird beer.
