jinroh (262) - 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.

floydian1 (825) - 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.

Machalel (32) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2013
Appearance: Dark red-brown, light tan head. Settled down a bit quickly. Aroma: More caramel than expected, some faint hops. Miso smell was present. Taste: A bit bready, malty. Some caramel, hops, and fruitiness. Small amount of miso taste. Clean and lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation & medium body. Drinkability: Quite drinkable, but not really that enjoyable. A bit too simple and conservative. Almost bland and uninspiring.
