Tap at Waseda oktoberfest. Pours nice amber, looking beautifully clear in the glass. Some bubbles. Aroma has some roast caramel, bit of herbal hops. Mainly roast though. Taste is roast bitter. Clean and actually very nice. Had this from a bottle many times before but tap version really is nicer. Thumbs up!

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Aroma is tropic fruit, some floral hops, no resin. Quite dry, only a little of everything. Nice fine bubbled mouthfeel. Not bad.

It’s easy to undersell a beer like this, because it’s not an IPA or a bold Stout. What it is is an incredibly nice malty Amber with sweet caramel fading even into light milk chocolate while finishing mildly bitter with good citrus notes. It’s actually just a fucking good beer that would be elite even in America.

Bottle 330ml @ Nøgne Ø
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, funk and some tartness. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long caramel and funky finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Draught at Keyaki. Classic amber profile, caramel malt, piney hops, notes of grape and pepper, dry bitter finish. Good stuff, fairly straight-forward and drinkable.

On tap at Pub Edo. Pours a rich copper with a nice solid foamy head with good lacing. Cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, lightly toasted malts on the nose. Medium body with nice carbonation. Very well-balanced malt and hop with a nice crisp bitter finish. Solid amber.

Bottle bought in Japan (online shop). Pours a clear amber. Aroma has biscuit and bread, and a slight roastiness. Taste has loats of roastiness, in the finish hop bitterness coming through. Nice and complex, i really liked this one.
