Bottle trade from shigadeyo. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet nutty malt aroma. Medium body with lively carbonation. Solid balanced toasted flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.
