Deep gold color. Fat and frothy head. Malt and slight floral aroma. O.K. lace. light malt and hop taste. Not too watery. Better than I surmised.

a dortmunder all right, so marks for getting within a discernible style at least. apart from the fact that it gets itís own exciting category at ratbier, there isnít to much to say about this stuff. light, but syruppy mouthfeel. at first itís really dry, then leaves behind an unclean cheesy bitterness. prefer suntory maltís for a japanese dortmunder.

Light gold color. This beer has a malty aroma, finish was so bad.

Little aroma, yellow with nice carbonation and solid head. Even malty flaovr with bitter end. Dry. OK.

Interesting orange color, and a fairly decent flavor, nice malt tones. However -this is nowhere near the best beer of this type that I have had.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2002
Pale Golden Color with medium thick head. Fairly strong malt aroma with very slight hoppy bitter undertones. Slightly sweet malt flavor. This is a good beer but why they call it a stout draft is beyond me.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Medium straw color, medium head. A medium bodied draft style lager. Nicely malty with a nice hop bite. Clean and crisp taste. Light taste but with some flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and round. Finish is crisp and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer. I don’t mean to go on a rant here, but STOUT DRAFT is confusing!!

I had this in Kyoto, Japan. Pale yellow with some rising bubbles. Diminishing white head. Crisp and dry with a medium body.

A good brew and the best available next to Ginga Kogen beers.

This beer is a study in contradictions: The label calls it a "Stout Draft" in one place (and who knows that that is), then it reads "100% malt" and "brewed from 100% fine barley malt and select hops" elsewhere. Which is it? Anyway, this is definitely the best Asian beer I have come across so far, but still not a great brew. Still, I think Sapporo may be on to something. Pours a very orange color with a medium off-white head. Medium sweet malt aroma. Lightly sweet malt flavor and medium effervescence. There was some hops in the finish but everything seemed understated about this beer. Nothing really stood out, but if I am in Japan I will order this before a Sapporo or Kirin.
