Pleasant Darjeeling aroma. Sweet fruity flavors on top of the Darjeeling tea, gentle sweet finish. Quite simple and drinkable, maybe a tad too sweet, a likely ladies favorite for tea time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
600 yen (200ml) on tap at Craftheads. 5% A clear gold with a thick foamy white head with great staying power the nose is sweet & tea like the taste is a sugary tea, tasty enough but not at all beer like. Sweet, Darjeeling tea, candy sugar a hint of cardboard. I guess weird beers are the niche Johana is trying to carve out. Interesting, too sweet though it gets somewhat cloying. Ok I guess.
