worldbeertaste (1789) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011
It pours hazy dark amber, with red highlights, low carbonation and a foamy beige head. Smell of Caramel and plum, figs and brown suger. Dry feel, Huge range of Taste. Melon, cherry, chocolate, berries (strawberry) and a sweet dry aftertaste. Very enjoyable. There is a miso flavour in the back but its subtle.

floydian1 (1301) - 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.

Bottle. Copper pour with a nice white head that dissipated quickly. Caramel, wine, oak, red miso. Medium body. A lot of red miso umami and sweetness throughout. Pretty nice

Slightly oloudy dark copper. No head. Aroma is raisin bread, caramel, malt and herbs. Flavor is caramel, toasted malt, herbs, miso, seaweed, fruits and residual sugar. Light body with a slightly visquous mouthfeel.

jinroh (1029) - ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2013
330 ml bottle from Seijo Ishii @ Nagoya station. Red miso lager - I wonder how this miso was used in the brewing process? It definitely pours a bit red, well, more like reddish brown to be exact. Hazy, foam with some brown notes, dissipating fast. Aroma is quite sweet, some alcohol, cookies and peach. When it gets warmer then aroma improves, there is something salty now, also sweet flowers. Taste sensation is strong at first but not so much when I try to elaborate. Fruity, malty - but not too sweet. Can I taste some umami? Somehow it doesn’t feel to be very balanced, a bit rough from the edges. Aftertaste is bitter and quite short. Hoppy and watery. Overall, interesting take and I salute for using local Japanese ingredients to make this beer more interesting. I do like the idea and concept - but I also think that it is possible to improve from here.

sulawang (913) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Nosing: sweet caramel malts, a hint of red wine. Visual: pours light cola brown, decent foamy lasting head, good retention, sticky lacing, several active singular streams. Taste: root beer, toffee malts, caramel, barley malt, 6/10-sweetness, red miso depth. Palate: fizzy-crisp, medium bodied, low hopped bitterness, sweet caramel finish. Overall a good sweet dark lager with a mild miso twist; couldnt identify it as miso without knowing. B-.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2009
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.

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!
