2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - deep amber with a fizzy pale brown head which soon fizzles away to nothing. The aroma is just awful, maybe because its in a clear bottle, but its mostly just an overwhelming aroma of corn. There’s some grass and malt also if you try to find it. Taste is somewhat redeeming - malts, grass and lemon followed by some sweet malts and a medium bitter finish. Some hints of corn in the taste. Medium body, high carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml clear bottle with a nicely designed shape and artwork on the label, poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear amber with a small white head, that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of caramel and biscuits. Flavours of caramel, biscuits, toffee and honey. Taste is light sweet and medium-heavy bitter. Palate is light bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Overall a good sessionable Bitter that goes well with grilled food, the flavours are mild but pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
About 200 yen from the Seiyu in Minami-Kusatsu for a 500ml bottle, 4.5% - this is dirt cheap for Japan. I am not a fan of clear bottles but what can you do. It pours a light copper gold with a light beige/off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, graham, biscuit, caramel plus at first you get some skunkiness but it isn’t that pronounced. The body is quite thin with a rough sandpaperish carbonation giving it a sharp mouthfeel. The taste is grainy, sawdust, a bitter hit and a brief sweet caramel hit. The finish is pretty good with a nice biscuity caramel plus some hoppy bitterness. A decent cheap ale for the price.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Large bottle, thanks to niilohast. Beautiful amber color with extremely small head. Honey, wooden aromas. Acids at first turn to bitter quickly and leaves flavors to short and dull.
