jdjuice (398) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - APR 29, 2010
Fresh on tap at the Kumamoto brewery. Quite different from canned/regular tap versions. Hop flavor is much more pronounced and tastes fresher. Actually quite a nice beer at the brewery, and you’re allowed three glasses of it after the free brewery tour. Canned version is around a 2.6.

bartazo (89) - Esztergom, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2010
0,33 literes dobozos kiszerelés. Gyorsan elszálló hab alatt világos arany test. Illatában a maláta uralkodik, melyet megtör egyfajta kovász aroma. Ízére szintén a kenyér ízű maláta jellemző melyhez kissé édeskés szőlőhéj íz kapcsolódik, s ezt az egészet körbefonja egy keserű komlósság.

Tonkun (976) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Tap and bottle. Light gold pour with pretty long lasting white head. Light on the nose - grass and some spice. Light body but nice balance of bitterness, sweetness and malt. Goes well with Japanese raw fish.

VertBaconStrips (2149) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Pale gold, small white head, dusty surface cover with some spotty lacing. What the hell is this???? Doesn’t really smell like beer.. stolen description: citrus spice dust. Sour, drinkable but not really beerish. Odd grain? Touch of apple, lightly spiced hops, taste is getting better... orange.... well I guess this ain’t terrible. Decent finish with a short bitterness.

Wombata (472) - Kobe, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2009
Appearance: Yellow with gold tint. Aroma: Slightly floral with grapefruit rind--not very aromatic. Flavor: Light-medium malt with some bready/yeasty character. Moderately sweet fruit (ripe orange) plus bitter grapefruit rind. Comment: The palate shows a nice initial attack of malt, bittering and carbonation followed by a little sweet malt with the flavor rapidly fading on the finish. What little malt/hop integration there is quickly falls apart as it warms even just a bit. A sign of a not very well-made beer.

probstblueribbon (3208) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
50 cl can from Japan (thanks Dad!), served cold in a tulip glass. JL 24/09.

App.: Clear, golden with a fair, white, creamy head. Aroma: Light grain and cereal, some very light grassy, peppery hops. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Quite light, a little vague fruitiness, grain and cereal, a bit of grassy/peppery hops; dry with a little bitterness.

Kinda boring.
