A pretty decent Japanese brew.
Pours a hazy straw with very light head. Weak aroma of grapefruit and light citrus fruits.
Mild effervescence pairs with smooth, medium body. Lightly citrusy with weak malts and lingering mild bitterness.

33cl bottle (I think, it was a strange shaped bottle) at Raku in Dupont, Washington DC. Poured a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some light sweet malts, nice earthy and some citrus hops. Flavor was light malt, some earthy and tropical hop character. Better than I expected.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (from Japan)
Golden color, small white head. Aroma has tropical fruits, resiny hop oily stickyness. Medium-bodied. Front shows that lots of hops have been used. Very oily, resiny flavor. Citrus, fruityness. Then has enough sweet fruityness to make aftertaste less bitter. Interesting flavors and aromas for "only" 5% beer.
