Westkyoto77 (518) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 12, 2013
Draught at Bungalow. Fiery red-brown body, good aromas of fruit, malt and caramel. Delicate flavours of said fruit- raisins?- caramel and touch of brown sugar. Nicely balanced, excellent mouthfeel. This was really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Shinshu Sake Mura. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, fruity orange, bit yeasty too. Taste is good. Cinnamon and orange, pretty nice. Solid maltiness.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a medium white head. Rich in caramel malt and toffee. There’s a subtle hoppyness but low in bitterness in the mouthfeel. A slightly dry finish. A pretty good amber ale. (RateBeer Sydney Xmas Gathering 2009 - cheers TimE!)

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2009
My pick of three Minamishinshu beers at a Sydney gathering courtesy of Japanese beer ambassador, TimE. Bronze with a lasting head. Smells very sweet but to style - caramels, stewed fruits. Medium bodied and nicely creamy. All malt in the mouth, with minimal bitterness. Figs and toffees. Like the Apple Hop, it’s saved from being too sweet by a nice dry finish. A pretty good example of one of my least favourite styles. (Ratebeer Sydney Xmas gathering under the harbour bridge, 2009. Beer courtesy of TimE - thanks buddy.)

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2009
Canned at Shinshu Osake Mura (Nagano Sake Village), Tokyo (5.5%). Hazy pale amber, small head. Light roasty malt together with grapefruity hops fight for attention. Slimmed with careful roasty malt, a bit of salt. Very mild and easy going, fairly low bitterness.

KyotoLefty (6354) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the Griffon in Shibuya. Aroma: fruity, hoppy, with cherries. Fruity, malty flavor, with caramel. Nice, rounded malt. A bit fruity, with great balance. A bit too light, but interesting. Fruity, mild, complex. Very subtle but nicely done.
