Marc (486) - Yokosuka, - JAN 21, 2008
Bready herbalness and some floral qualities in the nose. Looks alot like a heff and has some wheatyness to it as well. Grainy malts with biscuit and an underlying herbal bitterness to it all. Finishes with hoppy and slightly sweet. Very pleasant.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2016
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.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 9, 2015
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.

willisread (2565) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
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.

biirusaikou (2585) - - SEP 29, 2015
Draught at Garden House. Sweet malt and dough with some grassy hops, too sweet and probably off-style. Boring overpriced tourist beer.

minihame2 (493) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2015
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.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 21, 2014
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.

KyotoLefty (9405) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2011
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.
