Having just had the Aso Amber I figured now was a good time to crack open this can of Oh! La! Ho! Amber Ale I got from Taniguchi. 4.5% Much nicer looking it is a deep reddish Amber with a huge bed head of foam that lingers & leaves great lacing behind. The aroma is soft cocoa, citrus and malts. Yum. Med-light bodied with a sharp rounded carbonation that pricks your tastebuds. This US style Amber is much more my style. The taste is malty cocoa, mild toffee, graham and citrusy hop fruitiness with a light dry finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Can from Nagano station. Lovely ruby pour with small off-white head. Caramel fruit and red berry aroma. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel with nice malts and berries.

From a small plastic cup at Keyaki Hiroba. Pours darker amber, small layer of foam. Aroma is very very malty, slightly thick and spicy. Tastes also malty, stuffed bread, thick, tasting nice.

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.

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.
