2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of bread and light noble hop. Flavor is bready, and it’s rather light and refreshing. Suggests grape for a moment. Finishes bready and lightly bitter. For the style it’s spot on. Though the hop may be just a little unusual.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours pale yellow-amber with a medium fizzy white head with decent lacing. Aroma is very light, floral, a bit fruity. Flavor is NOT grainy, but rather a medium sweet floral, a bit of honey, light bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly pleasant actually, just a bit oversweet.

Bottle sample at a tasting in our place. Thanks DSG. Pours clear pale golden with a quickly dissolving white head. Dry, lime/whitewash aroma, tastes sweet, medicinal, fruity and smokey in a weird, wrong way. Light body, a little sticky and sleek.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Apparently the ’flavors of a lost kingdom’s include acetaldehyde. Green appley throughout, almost like watery cider mixed with pale lager. Not offensive but pretty blah.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at local Indian restaurant. Soda pop fruity nose. Light pale straw. Big cardboardy initial; mid is fizzy and candyish; final brings a touch of bitterness. Thin body. Fizz and sweetish cardboard is really the whole thing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Indian restaurant in Shibuya. Appearance is unsurprisingly pale lager like, bit creamy not so much bitterness, clean tasting, surprisingly drinkable. Aroma not much there aside from a lager smell. Not unpleasant, but a bit unexciting. Bit helles like.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at a tasting, thanks DSG, clear yellow colour, flavour of honey and solvent, very strong artificial lingering sweetness with some bitterness trying to push through mostly in vain. God knows what this this beer has been through.
