2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad. A bit of fruitiness in the taste... Easy to drink and probably a mass people pleaser. Not bad...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The body has a deep golden amber color with a small one finger thick head on top. The head is very light and soapy. It fades out quickly and makes no lacing at all. There is a light sweetness with a touch of light roasted malt and grain. There are some light hop notes too which add light herbal and metallic notes. Its flavor pretty much walks the same line as its aroma. Mildly sweet grainy malt hooks up with herbal/metallic hop bitterness for balance. It finishes with some of the odd tangy metallic hop notes hanging on to the tongue. Its light to medium bodied with light carbonation and a boring feel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was always poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-decent looking pale golden amber color with a decent half finger-ed white foamy head that barely lasted for twenty seconds. Lacing, uh...what lacing, there wasn’t any.
The smell, well, it had that soapy/British malts that doesn’t bother me like it does most people, fuggles (earthy) hops.
The taste was semi-sweet through the British malts.
The palate sat about a light to medium and tried to show somewhat of decent sessionability but I found myself really only having about one in a time period. Carbonation seemed fairly clean and crisp and slightly smooth.
Overall, uh...for the most part, just another regular English Pale Ale that doesn’t excite but still shows its worth if one happens to put this with some fish n’ chips.

Standard bulk brew ale. Nothing special, but still better than the big three offerings.

355 ml bottle, paid only 178 yen for this one @ Jiyugaoka Garden. Pours dark amber, a bit hazy with a nice foam top - that is gone in minutes. Aroma is nice and fruity, melon. First sip reveals quite high carbonation that this beer has, along with a nice bitter aftertaste. Good session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 01-12-2010 (Bottle) This beer forms a small very fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent orange body with a golden tint, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, spicy, citrus and pine hops. The Taste is bitter, caramel malt and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not over-the-top hoppy tasting and does not have a lot of character.

Bottle. Pours light caramel golden in color with a thin white head. Has a light bready aroma with a touch of hops. Fairly easy drinking ale, not overly hopped.
