Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUL 9, 2016
Tap at a ramen shop next to CBB. Aroma: Orange, dried apricot, pine and cedar spiciness. Flavor: Similar to the nose with pine and grassy hop. Good balance of malt and hop with a mediumi long finish. Served at the perfect temperature and in perfect condition. Best Pale Ale I’ve had from Minoh. Have they raised their game?

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Bright, amber, has a mellow melony hop with a hit of grapefruit. Has a mellow character. Hops and similar and the light caramel malts provide good balance. Good 90s style pale.

jc1762 (798) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Poured into a plastic cup on the Shinkansen showing dark brown, barely any filtration, and light carbonation on the sides with no head. The nose shows a lot of grainy malts with light notes of pineapple and a little mango. The palate is lightly carbonated and medium to full bodied. Flavors of balanced malt and some light cannabis with a light bitterness. Very british in style, subtle yet easy to drink with no flaws but nothing outstanding.

jdjuice (496) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2015
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

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 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.

Bottle at The Beso Bar, Osaka. Cloudy orange with medium white head. Citrus orange aroma with good malt backbone. Similar for the taste, medium body, soft carbonation, nice spicy bitter finish.

Garrold (4253) - 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.
