pours a clear copper with a small light beige head, and good lacing. smell is of sweet malt, some hops in back, and some caramel. taste is of malt, caramel, a little sweetness, and a touch of spice.

Pyobon (1103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Draught. Reddish brown, no head. Subtle caramel aroma with hint of seaweed. Light body and carbonation. Flavour is caramel with some fruit and no bitterness. Overall a fine drinkable but unexceptional beer.

I’ll have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. I’ll have to try this again in the proper glassware.

Of the three offerings i had from this brewer, i liked this one the most. Good mix of alcohol and malt. Tasted fresh and crisp. Very smooth and drinkable.

On tap at Universal city walk. Creamy off white head atop an amber bodied beer. Smells of lightly toasted malts with caramel and toffee.Tastes pretty much the same as the aromas and finishes with a slight sweetness coupled with a little bitterness.
