Excellent aftertaste on this one, smokey dark chocolate with a nice 6% bite. Buying this again!

I love the Yebisu Red autumn beer, this is as close as I can find in the Spring. A flavoursome quaff!

Aroma: earthy hop and malt Palate: balanced Flavor: earthy hop and malt like the aroma. Comment: Not bad. Balanced sweetness and hop. Not complex but OK.

Sweet caramel cereals. Caramel, croissant/brioche, herbal hops, bittersweet finish. Quite caramel focused, a bit light but not too bad, not sure that the name suits though.

KyotoLefty (7232) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2012
Can. Pretty enough gold color with a low head. Malty nose, light caramel, biscuits. Between a helles and a bock, without much hop aroma. Malty flavor, not much hop flavors, tingly, peppery finish though, gives up some hop bitterness. Nice balance. Decent, though could be more original. Drinkable with nice body. Good train beer.

Yes it tastes like a full bodied macro, no it’s not as good as Premium malts, but, it ain’t as bad as some would have you believe. Rich, a lack of true flavour, more processed malt and a heavy bitter finish. Definitely drinkable, but their flagship is pretty far ahead of this.

Lata. Clear golden colout, medium white head. Malty aroma, sweet caramellic like. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is toasty malty like with caramel and some fruitish hops, nice bitterness. Pale lager, a good pale lager.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2854) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2015
Can from 7-11. 2015 edition that is a deep gold with a thick head of foam with solid staying power & good lacing. The nose is sweet, grainy, syrupy caramel. Not really like an English Bitter which is what I was expecting. It has a medium body and a slick mouthfeel The taste isn’t half-bad a touch of chocolate, grainy, some graham and bitterness. You don’t get the 6% but it is fairly plain and boring.

Westkyoto77 (553) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2013
Can. Faint hoppy aroma. Strong malty body, smooth enough on the palate, with clear bitter finish. Not quite as balanced as Premium Malts or even Malts, but at 6% you get a decent beer for your money.
