Draught at Garden House. Sweet malt and dough with some grassy hops, too sweet and probably off-style. Boring overpriced tourist beer.

Pours hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is hoppy with some grass. Fruity taste. Watery mouthfeel, light carbonation. Nothing special to see here.

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.

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.

Bottle from the liquor store by Kamakura station. Grassy green hops, straw, light golden malts. Medium gold. Sweet honey malts, grassy hops, light citrus, clean and crisp. Not much happening, but not bad either. Clean golden ale.

Very malty beer. Quite full body. Minimal hopping. Solid but rather uninteresting. Poured a nice light brown. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Heavy malty lemon zesty smell on the frothy white head. Taste is bready and mouthfeel is well balanced. This, however, simply does not impress me overall as a beer. It lacks a certain spark and as it warms up, it tastes more like a pilsner. Great label design...not great beer..and at almost 5 dollars per bottle, not a good bargain either.
