3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle from beer shop in Kamakura, Japan. Appearance is golden, cloudy and with a nice head. Taste has some malts and something... not hops but maybe the minerals in water. This is quite mild for a pale ale, but really refreshing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light hazy golden (8EBC) colour and a light frothy white head, good lacings. Aromas of light fresh straw, lightly toasted white bread, bit grass with some DMS. Finely carbonated, rather bright and smooth, light-medium body. Brief malty sweetness with a light hop bitterness. Light semi dry bit sweet finish. Pleasant enough and good with some japanese foods, could live more from a hop side.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Kamakura. Orange with a small white head. Bread dough aromas with some grass and vegetable. Fairly sweet on the palate. A slight bit of bitterness on the finish (pepper?). Overly sweet and the nose was kind of weird. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Garden House. Sweet malt and dough with some grassy hops, too sweet and probably off-style. Boring overpriced tourist beer.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very little head and a cloudy golden color. Not much aroma. Most of the hops going for the 33 IBU. Seems a little unbalanced, but fairly easy to drink bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from shop in Kamakura. Aroma is malty, bit weird, vegetal maybe, doughnuts and grassy hops. Quite a mix! Taste is sweet and malty, light hoppy bitterness, but sweetness is dominant. Not wild about it, but not horrible but any means.
