DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle, at Miga in Champain. Hazy reddish amber, beige head. Quite vinous, with Pinot noir character and light malt, slightly musty. Very interesting, nice.

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.

Tasty and with a light fragrant. Start with a light touch of sweet Miso that is overwhelmed by bitterness over growing.

evergreen0199 (2287) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from my wifes relative in Nagoya, Japan. A dark amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes fruity, caramel, malty and yet very Japanese. Couldn’t really detect the red miso though. An interesting brew that is quite hard to describe, enjoyable nevertheless.

sulawang (698) - 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-.

Capa (2238) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2007
@ GJBF 2007. Reminds me of a weizen, but with something added...like miso (I guess). Banana and sweet malts, with some yeast. Spices are noticeable in the flavor, but the miso adds something I’ve never experianced before. Really interesting. Not bad, actually.

15/IX/13 - 33cl bottle @ post-Zwanzeday tasting at home - BB: 14/XII/2013 (2013-867)Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the bottle!

Clear red brown beer, aery beige head, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sugary, some dried fruits, toast, bit nutty. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little sugary, bitter touch, some caramel, bit salty, toast, thin. Aftertaste: salty touch, mocha, umami, bit toasted, hint of dried fruits, bitter touch, but overall a watery impression. Too bad, cause the smell was so promising!

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
Medium tan head. Hazy opaque black body with ongoing carbonation. Fruity red beans aroma with toffee and caramel pudding notes. Dry-sweet toffee and rice pudding taste with grassy notes. Fullish body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish fruity soy sauce aftertaste with licorice and alcohol notes. Nice, unusual, and harmonic. Very drinkable. (0.33l bottle, JR Takashimaya, Nagoya.)

kerrmatt (27) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 23, 2013
Good appearance, smooth lasting beige head. Smells like not a lot but tastes with plenty of malt back bone and interesting flavour. Dark chocolate, soy, bread. Well balanced palate and carbonation but not a lot lasting after a mouthful. Good beer, very drinkable and suited to many Japanese dishes.
