On tap at the 2008 HIroshima City Beer Festa. I’ve never seen a bitter this cloudy before, which leads me to believe that it may not actually be a bitter. Deep copper body, minimal head. The flavor had a very crisp, citrusy bitter, reminiscent of a German Wheat, which would make sense given the Japanese general preference for German beer styles.

The nose is sherry, some malt with a slightly harsh ethanol/nail varnish edge. Medium bodied with a decent carbonation. The taste is off, sherry, nutty, metallic, sour,  not good.  ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like cheap sherry. Tastes like a softer, cheap sherry. Drinkable, but not really a beer.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 On tap at the 2008 Micro Brewers Festa in Hiroshima. A very malty, non-bitter English bitter. Closer to a brown ale in my mind, but: Dark amber to medium brown color, with a huge malt / caramel nose. No hops really in the nose. Again, malt-centered, caramel, flavor, sweet but refreshing. Very light bittering hops. The malt complexity won the day for me. For licensing purposes, these beers are categorized as "Happoshu," which means a good percentage of something other than barley malt. Don’t know if it is wheat or sugar or unmalted barley.
