Draught at Craftsman. Caramel malt, plum, orange, bit of cinnamon, fairly dry finish. Not bad for the style, pretty drinkable, I guess I was expecting another mediocre gift brew.

Bottle at Takase in Mojiko. Amber gold pour, small white head. Orange aroma, some malts. Flavour is dry with nice bread malts to balance the orange. A nice surprise with lunch.

Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Tap at Enibru. Aroma: Light, dried orange, grain, yeast. Palate: Flavor: Bitter dried orange and mikan, grain and yeast. Comment: A bitter style amber lager. Good balance with firm bittering, unlike an amber ale. Aroma is maybe an 8 on this one.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This crisp quencher shares mildly biscuity, toasted malts over light spicy hoppiness for a competent yet generic experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy amber.
-This is quite fruity for a lager... which makes me wonder about their lagering practices…
-The finish needs more hop bitterness. As is, it is completely forgettable and doesn’t make you want to jump back for another sip.
-Smoother, more natural carbonation (this was very prickly) would have helped.

On tap at The 2nd Vine.

Draught at the Ji-Beer Festa in Hiroshima, 2012. Medium amber, clear. Nice fruity caramel nose. Subtle. Nothuge but good. Crackery, bready malts, with caramel flavors, sweet, but a dry finish. Really well done and balanced beer.
