Pours nice amber gold, but with weird soapy head. Aroma is fresh hops, fruity, lemons, piney. Flavors are hoppy again, but with a mouthfeel more like an ESB than an effervescent pale ale. Body is pretty light, with a dry, fairly strong bitterness that lingers. Something of this beer reminds me of freshly sanded cedar.

Excellent ale. Well balanced with a nice citrus flavour and a floral scent. Good bitterness. Has a coppery amber look to it with a nice head. Found this in LOFT. Well worth the money. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this as a go-to APA in Japan. Nice copper body, floral aroma, great citrus and floral balance in the taste, and good bitterness throughout. Solid body, flavourful, and consistent.

Garrold (2863) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy amber. Dense, messy, lasting, just off white head. Grainy malt. Toffee malt. Some flora, then above all that a distinctive blood orange, hoppy sweetness. Taste is rising, pithy bitter. A touch of spice. Creamy mouthfeel. Light, and airy, but with a nice hop punch. Finishes long, light bitter. Excellent.

330ml bottle from Deguchiya in Naka-Meguro. Poured into a snifter. Pours a gorgeous hazy golden orange color with a modest frothy head. Nice aromas of pine, grapefruit with floral notes as well. Bitter on the palate with slightly sweet undertone. Hops are well-pronounced. Strong pale ale from Minoh.

Bottle from Yamaya Kyoto by Pontocho. One of the best Japanese pale ales I’ve had in Japan. Sits between APA and English Pale Ale. Hoppiness of a good APA (although not overly exciting or complex) and bitterness at English PA levels. The flavour is good, plenty of citrus, floral and a rare and large dose of hops in Japan.

jmgreenuk (5957) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is floral hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a big resin floral hop mint palate and a lingering minty hop bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. It took a while for this to grow on me. About 30 seconds to be precise :-) Quite an upfront beer but it certainly quenches the tastebuds!
