I’m waiting for the head on this to go down so I can taste it....and man oh man....what a head. its a light wheat color, and so thick! I could spoon this and use it for cappucino! little surprised by the smell....a little more rank than I suspected....really kinda sweet, but not fruity....little concerned.... nice taste! Clean, bright...really crisp. Its hard to make out any one individual taste in this brew....not overly malty or strong.....not bad. Not great....different. I like this...

tommyhannon (7) - dunmore. county galway, IRELAND - APR 19, 2014 does not count
Pours a reasonable head with a rich orangey red colour. Quite a meaty mouthful arrangement of sweet caramels and toffees with hints of nuttiness and coffee. Intense and full bodied. This is one for accompaniment to stews and other hearty earthy dishes. Quite good. Packs a punch.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1340) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2014
Crazy skunky nose, clear amber brown, nice head of foam. Skunky malty nose. Light soft malty body but a bit rough. The taste is skunky, malty, sweet. Light biscuit & some hops. Ok but past it’s prime.

Bottle from Yamaya. Pretty amber-orange with a tall, fine head. Tangy, hoppy nose, tobacco, orange. Nice malt flavor, tangy, grassy and herbal. Soft and full, sweet but balanced. Quite fun, good stuff.

Bottle. Pours copper with lasting cream coloured head. Orange, vanilla and yeast on the nose. Creamy, smooth taste with some malt and fruit. Longish finish with some sharpness. Nicely full and balanced. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probably one of the most damn good beer that i’ve been drinking. The aroma is soft, normal, not so good. I feel a bit of vanilla and a little’ yeast, but not’ so good as the beer really is. That’s a great beer. Con un aspetto marroncino, quasi color noce, color bourbon, ed una schiuma beige bella fine ma non persistente. In bocca la birra da il meglio. Ha il sapore che dovrebbe avere una birra. Amara, astringente, bella frizzante con una carbonatazione superiore alla media ma non asfissiante. Un corpo rotondo, quasi dolce, ma comunque visibile. Alcool nascosto che ermerge poco poco. Sapore di resina, pigna, lievemente pane e retrogusto lungo che regala fragole e vaniglia. La bocca, dopo averla bevuta, rimane veramente soddisfatto. Dopo aver bevuto tante birre, posso dire che per ora questa è quella che mi piace maggiormente forse, sicuramente nella grande élite. veramente una birra da gustare, che si lascia bere e che non appesantisce.

0.5L bottle. Caramel candy and fruit aroma. Apple juice, raisin, mouldy, light ginger honey tea flavors. Enjoyable bitter finish for a few seconds. Little raw banana taste. Interesting flavors game.
