A nice amber brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with fruity esters and nuts. In mouth, a nice nutty vienna with mineral notes, cant really taste miso, but good anyways. Medium bodied. Bottle at Mondiale 2009.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Yamaoka. Rich, slightly sour aroma, with molasses, raisin, slightly warming and wine-like. Dark brown color with a lot of orange. Low, light colored head. Rich flavor with caramel malt, miso, a touch of sourness, something a bit medicinal, coming off the miso I guess. Rather sour and not as nice as their red miso lager.
