3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown long neck bottle, 330 ml. ABV 4,5%.
Ingredients are water. barley malt, wheat malkt, hops, green tea, yeast and yuza which are japanese lemons according to the label. Poured into a tumbler.
Colour is very pale yellow, with a hazy semitransparent body and one finger of head that disappears fast.
Aroma is green tea. citrus fruits along with some floral notes and honey.
Tatse is sweet with green tea notes here too. Some light sourness on the aftertaste. I think I can taste some honey too.
Full body and light carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. It gave me a numb feeling on the back of my mouth, I guess that was the green tea.
I got this at an asian goods supermarket, thinking it would be japanese or something, but thatís not the case of course. Back to the beer, this is a very good one, the green tea and the lemon sourness on the aftertaste making it even more refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piwo mętne, dobrze wysycone. Żůłtego intensywnego koloru. Niezbyt mocny aromat zielonej herbaty, bardziej cytrus dominuje. W smaku tylko ciut aromat herbaty się zaznacza. finisz słodko-kwaskowaty, brak chmielu

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow, small white head with thin retention. Nose is malt with hints at green tea. Taste is similar to the nose, some vague hoppiness in the finish. Aftertaste has some lemon in it. Not offensive in any way, but pretty forgettable.
