33 cl bottle in Ji Buru, Singapore. Hazy, approximate, hoppy pale ale with few if any allusions to Africa. That said, it is a fruity, adequately hopped session beer that almost rocks. (Late at night: excuse the absence of detail.)

KansaiBeerLvrs (2661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya served in a footed pilsner glass. It pours a light copper gold with a very minimal head that vanishes in a blink. It has a really nice herbal and pine cone dank hop bouquet. Medium bodied with a somewhat watery mouthfeel. The taste is sweet malts and peppery pine - decent.

Bottle from Yamaoka Sake Shop. Slightly bitter aroma, hay and alcohol. Cloudy orange/yellow haze. Surprising hop kick up front, citrus bitter. Nice body, not syrupy, light and crisp. This is a great beer for the summer. The finish leaves you wanting another sip.

czlowiekwiadro (298) - POLAND - JUN 26, 2014
ładny, dość intensywny (ale bez przesady) chmielowy zapach. słodkie tropikalne owoce, liczi, mango, nashi, do tego sporo żywicy i trochę świeżej trawy. kolor złoty, dość mozcno zmętniony, piana mało obfita ale dość trwała. w smaku dość pełne, słodkie, ale zdecydowanie od chmielu, nie od słodu. goryczka średnia, w smaku przypominająca sok z czerwonego graefruita albo skórkę. dość długotrwała, ale w przyjemny sposób. dość niskie nasycenie sprawia, że piwo jest całkiem aksamitne i łatwo pijalne
