Starting off at Popeye’s Nippon craft beer hand pumps. Nice fruity flavor, flowery caramel, hardly any head, low carbonic acid. A descent beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pump at Popeyes. Amber body with small head. Fruity hop nose, flowers. Taste was malty and vinously floral, some faint spices. Slightly sharp palate, a bit agressive perhaps. A good beer to break it up with, nothing defining.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good sloid APA. Real ale version at Popeyes. Poured with no head. Orange, amber hue. Malty on the tongue, accented by a hoppy finish, although defintely not over powering. Easy to knock back, though nothing to really write home about. Good starter.

On Draught at Popeye. Nice citrus and dark fruit aroma, looks deep golden with an amber backbone. An easy thirst quencher with a great hoppy finish. It’s understated but has everything in balance.

On draft at Popeye, Tokio, Japan. Clear orange-golden appearance, no head. Faint nose, some hops. Initially fruity flavour (orange), which later on develops to be more bitter. Lasting bitter finish.

from a 500ml bottle. nice straw to amber color, good head. Nice orangey, citrusy aroma. Hops and malt blend well together to make a nicely drinkable beer that would stand up to most American versions. Hops are a bit one dimensional though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 Slightly hazy orange with an off-white head. Grapefruit hops, grass, some floral, too. Body is a tad thin. Flavor is grassy, grapefruit, and a little caramel malt. Pretty good, but it’s definitly missing something.
Tried this again at Aldgate and it was much better than I remember. Much hoppier and fuller flavor. Bumped my score up a few points.

Med light amber color. Very fragrant citrusy nose with oranges and grapefruits. Nice hoppy start. Mouth is definitely hop accented, but a bit thin. Grapefruity dry finish.
