JohnRMurdoch (4266) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Tap @ Kura Kura Ji-Beer House, Tokyo. Orange brown, reasonable head. Mild grain aroma. Orange biscuit malt flavour. Sharp with bitter citrus aftertaste. Decent but not outstanding pale ale.

Tap at Popeye. Golden amber colour, not much head. Aroma is lightly fruity, berries, solid sweet maltiness. Taste is grainy, some citrus hops, biscuity malt, quite fruity, quite dry. Solid if unexciting.

omhper (23001) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2009
Draught at Popeye, Tokyo. Lightly hazy deep golden, small head. Aroma of tangerine and winegum. Fairly sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Light to medium bodied with caramelly malt and a bit of peach. Rather low bitterness.

Capa (2597) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Clear copper with a wimpy head. Light malts and then nothing in the aroma. Flavor is sadly the same as the aroma. Not bad, just boring as it gets. I actually forgot I drank this until I went through my notes- and I only had three pints that night.

KyotoLefty (9040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2008
On tap at Popeye. Light, very hoppy aroma. Light copper color. Very light malt flavor, hops predominate. Fragrant, fruity, bitter hops. Clean and crisp, but not enough malt for me. Great hops though.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
My Bottom Line:
This modest English Pale Ale’s orangey hoppiness spices up the lightly honeyed maltiness which is barely able to ride the soft prickling of carbonation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam tops the clear pale orange-hued copper.
-The orangey, leafy hoppiness dominates the flavor profile while being far from assertive.
-The hermetic nose is thankfully not imitated by the talkative flavor profile.
-Maltiness needs to be bulked up for balance to be achieved and pleasure to be increased.

On tap at Popeye’s.

TimE (4885) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2007
Apparently Preston is a brewpub in a mall in Tochigi prefecture Japan. Very small outfit with a funny name. The beer itself was a golden amber color and had a soft hoppy nose of apples and oranges. Soft hoppy body of orange and apples and just a touch of lime. Mildly bitter hoppy finish. Pleasent.

larsga (7220) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Small white head. Light brown body. Light tropical fruit hop taste with very mild mouthfeel. Apple notes. No real aftertaste. Simple. but nice. (0.25l on cask at Popeye.)
