3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Lager Glass at 40°. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and a thin tight white head. Aroma is a sweet malt scent. It has a lighter medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is malt, just a touch of fruit and hop spice followed by a mild bitterness. In the after taste the bitterness stands up a bit more. Overall its very well done for a Lager.

Quite strange it was not in the results after searching. Fine beer but with a strange taste that makes it weird.

Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Mild grassy nose with small dull peach notes. Cloudy medium amber color. Bready, grassy, with maybe a bit of citrus. Medium body. A bit sticky for a lager. Seems extract-like in aroma and flavor.

Meh. Pretty standard stuff. $1.50 single, so no harm no foul. Clear golden pour. Generic malty aroma and taste, lightly fruity and bitter.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. can with undecipherable (to me at least) coding.
A: Tawny slightly hazy gold color with average carbonation from big rising bubbles producing a good bubbly head that both retains and laces quite well.
S: Prominent stiff cracker malt scent with a soft floral hoppiness.
T: A big belt of sour bread hits first with maybe a bit of soft but lingering hop presence. Not sure whether I like this or not as the sour note is pretty strong and dominates. Going to taste a 2nd bottle before finalizing the rating. 2nd bottle tastes a little better, with a more palatable bread note. Shit is evidently old.
M: Average to slightly below average carbonation and a medium weight..
O: Disappointing beer overall. Strange flavor leaves questions about the age of this beer. As mentioned, the can has some coding but I don’t know what that shit means and the brewer’s webpage also lists no coding info. Piss poor job here. Plus, a couple other brews from this brewer have been mediocre at best. Skip it.
