Scopey (11360) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle at the Japanese Craft beer tasting at the White Horse. It pours hazy dark amber, with red highlights, low carbonation and a foamy beige head. The nose is varnish, sweet caramel, marzipan, plum, Crème brulée, fig, salt and brown sugar. The taste is seaweed, melon, marmite, tart cherry, chocolate, peppered beef jerky, wood, ripe strawberry and a little alcohol warmth. Wow this is a very interesting brew! It is all about the umami.

Bottle at the White Horse. Big thanks to Doug, Jamie and Mark for arranging, facilitating and serving. Cheers Guys! Hazy red-amber beer. Big pale tan head which tastes sweet - cream with sugary bubblegum come red fruits come sweet red beans thing going on. Reminded me a little of some of those crazy Japanese Kit Kats. The beer is semi crisp with light carbonation. Sweet tangy vibrant generic fruits with cream and mild bubblegum in the background. Tiny bit of sherbet. An enigmatic beer full of flavour but hard to pin down. Who cares? Tastes great!

This lager is more bock like than I exepcted. Some sweet malt flavour, but the red miso did’nt jump out at me as much as I thought it would. Took me till nearly the end of the glass to really get its aroma and flavour, seemed a bit lost in the malt flavours. Burt overall a good, easy drinking beer from a micro in Japan.

floydian1 (1297) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 30, 2009
33cl brown bottle. A clear dark ruby-brown beer with a loose rapidly dissipating tan head. Light aromas of sweet caramel malts and little else. Flavour is lightly roasted sweet malts with hints of dark fruits and very subtle miso soup. Softly carbonated with thin texture and light-medium body. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Rather lacks the wow factor given how expensive it is.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2009
Im not a huge fan of miso, but I really enjoyed this beer. Dark brown but quite clear, lively body, medium head. The nose was really quiet, I couldnt get much, some caramel and a gentle roast. Taste was brown bread, plums, raisins, and a gentle roastiness. There is a certain miso/beany flavour in the back but its very subtle. Palate medium and fairly effervescent. Surprisingly very nice!
