Draught at Burgermania. Caramel malt, cake, croissant, mild lemony hop, dry bitter finish. Fairly disappointing by Outsider standards...

GenkiGonzo (704) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Ligt copper with small off-white head. Buttery aroma with some hops behind it. Butter biscuit flavor with dry pine hop finish.

shoulderbroken (2963) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2013
Tap at Craft Beer Server Land. Amber colour, off-white bubbly head. Aroma is lightly spicy, citrus, lots of malt, bit sweet. Taste is pretty good. Biscuity malt, nice lemon citrus, that UK thing I seem to find in their beers but this time it works for me. Maybe my favourite of their beers so far.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This generic Pale Ales light butterscotch-like sugars tag along orange-y hops and faint biscuit suggestions.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam tops the misty copper.
-Hop aromatics were deficient.
-The tiny bubbles and lean body make this very drinkable, but ultimately forgettable.
-Every mediocre brewpub in America has a Pale Ale like this. A brew-by-numbers example.
-Its hard to believe this is from Niwa-san. By far the least creative brew Ive had from him, ever.

On tap at Himalaya Table, Tokyo.

Theis (14611) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2013
Draught at Bungalow, Kyoto. Clear amber - white head. Light buttery. Some fat notes. Fruity hoppy. Not that hoppy. Toasted malts. Chocolate. Cocoa. Well......

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Draught at Qbrick. Rich, buttery malt nose. Dark straw color. Nice Bass-like initial / solid malty mid / finish is a bit harsh. Diacetyl kind of gets in the way. Thin-medium body. Good enough, but they should work on the diacetyl thing.

Wombata (550) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Aroma: buttery (diacetyl), some malt and hop. Flavor: buttery, slightly sour, bitter, Comment: good carbonation. Has potential. When served cold it was better; as it warmed the diacetyl flavors became more prominent. According to KL, if they leave it on the yeast longer before legging it, the diacetyl character will go away.

KyotoLefty (7996) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2012
Draught at Tadgs. Comes across as a little brother of the IPA. SImilar malt character, caramel-toffee, but here it is way ramped down. Grassy hops, light citrus, very dry and clean. Extremely drinkable and refreshing with a very dry, slightly bitter finish.
