On tap at the 2008 Hiroshima City Beer Festa. Cloudy, light gold body. Dominant flavor is of grapefruit. Very crisp palate, with a slight hoppy bite.

Tap at In Tha Door. Sour apple nose (hmmm?), grape skins. Very pale straw color. Sour fruit flavor, some candy sweetness in mid palate, slight bittering, harsh lightly burnt finish. Infected? Maybe. No pale ale should taste like this.

Kaori no Mugi, made with cascade hops. 300¥ small at In Tha Door brewing. A pretty gold pour with a thick head. Light green citrusy hops with perhaps a hint of diacetyl. Minty, earthy, green flavor on a medium body. Sweet diacetyl that comes off grape like. Not terrible but off.

Keg, BeerFest Daisen, 23/09/11. Same vein as Hideji Cascade but less so. Pale orange hefe looks with a rim of white. Lemon curd and cardamom aroma. Good peppery esters, almond, booze showing. Light lemony hop bite, stale Madeira cake kept in tupperware. Getting fussy as I move into UK daytime. Hefe or PA or what? Hung jury. Universally popular with locals and ex-pats alike but I wasn’t 100% convinced.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2009 On tap at the Micro Brewers Festa in Hiroshima. The brewer calls this a Pale Ale, I thought it was closer to a golden ale. Sparking, light gold. Huge, herbal cascade hops give it a citrus, grapefruit aroma. Some pale malt in the nose as well. Light body, with big hop flavor and some butter and muted golden malts. Crisp, fruity and herbal. Very nice and refreshing.
