3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
15th Aug 2016: shared 33cl bottle with the bloke who’s wife brought this (along with 4 other Japanese beers) home from a cycling holiday in Japan. As the name might suggest, this is a golden coloured beer, the head an off-white affair. Light malty nose leaning towards a sweetish caramel aroma. Taste also malts first backed up with a slight citrusy hop feel. OK and a good start to the mini-Japanese tasting session.

0.33 l bottle from Tokyu Food Garden, Tokyo. Golden clear, big head. Thirst quenching taste, i.e. pale malts and balanced amount of hops. Quite nice indeed. Oh, by the way, ABV was in my bottle 5%.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Golden colour with big white bubbly head. Aroma is slightly citrus, bit floury, biscuits too. Taste is initially quite sweet and citrussy, but few sips afterwards it becomes much more grainy, with a decent bitter finish. Still lots of fruit though. Slight bubblegum flavour in there too. Quite interesting.
