Cask - Sweetness and grains. Clearish gold with a tho white head. Nondescript bitterness and really dry. The beer takes subtle to a whole new level, almost tasteless. Some resin and citrus, but the bitterness and dryness overwhelm.

Cask to plastic cup. :( (Lezzet Osaka 1st year anniversary) This beer has a very light aroma; I get a slight sweetness and a touch if funk, but nothing I can place. Appearance is a translucent amber with practically no head, and nil effervescence. Smooth grapefruit with muted hoppiness.
Taste is a little

Keyaki. Golden colour, small white creamy head. Aroma is punchy hops, spiky. Taste similar, pretty solid, slight sweetness, good bitter finish. Lots of malt. Best of theirs so far at this fest.

Mild hoppy nose. Grape, cereals, watery finish. Pretty dull and forgettable pint.

Draught at Beer Belly. Real Ale version. Notes from tasting session. Mild, subtle stuff. Restrained– British style? Some lingering hop in finish… but this dies in the glass. A bit lacking in flavor, though it is balanced

Cloudy, orange/light brown colour. Aroma has fruit, grass and hops. Tingly but soft in the palate. Taste is strong with hops, aftertaste has some pine notes as well. Surprisingly good Japanese IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Ushi‐Tora, Tokyo. Rated on 16.09.2011
Very refreshing and a bit light aroma with fresh, exotic fruits. Hoppy flavour with bready malt. Sticky finish. An ok IPA, but too malty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled version bought direct from the website and shipped within Japan. American-Indian Pale Ale that falls well short of a hop monster but is beyond fab for the market it is brewed for. Sweetish and cleanish up front, a bit of citrus peel in the middle with a slice of barleyed steel bringing up the rear.

On tap @ Craft Beer Bar. Upfront smell of caramel; and burnt malty sugar. Looks like fine barley tea w/ a creamy off-white head. Very nutty in flavour with a slight hoppy bite. Nice balance between American/UK style IPA.
