3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from souvenir shop in Nagano Station. Light caramel nose, berries, tiny bit of chocolate, and yeast. Hazy reddish/amber color. and a 2cm head which dissipated immediately. Sort of nutty maltiness, minimal roast, yeast jumps up in mid palate, and small hint of bittering in finish. Thin-medium body. Less overtly malty and yeastier than many ambers. Decent nose, but flavors are not so clean.

Keyaki. Couldn’t believe I hadn’t rated this before. Must have had it I think. Good amber colour, decent creamy gold head. Aroma is pine hops, decent malt, bit creamy. Taste is good, enjoying amber ales at the moment. Decent spiciness, biscuit malt, full bodied. Good mix of flavours. A goodun.

Red fruit, caramel aromas. Caramel malt flavor, finish is a bit watery. A bit one-dimentional but still a fine amber ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid if a little uninspired for mine. Soft gooey caramel on the nose. Some floral hops too. Dark amber in colour. Decent, drinkable body - well balanced too. Toffee caramel with a soft bitter finish. A bit non descript but built for consumption than finesse.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper with a big, yellowish head. Deep caramel aroma with hints of milk chocolate and spices. Sweeter in the mouth with good milk chocolate.flavours. Hints of lemons as well. Finishes semi-dry. Another very good beer from this brewery.
