TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 18, 2010
Draft at Ushi Tora (Tokyo). A clear dark amber. A lot of caramel on the nose. Sweet caramel in the mouth - very smooth palate. Just a tickle of hops which works just right.

Cask at Bakushu Club Popeye. Pours a deep amber no head. Mild malts, earthy hop tones, cask in flavors and aromas. Really good hoped amber.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2009
Draught at Popeye, Tokyo. Orange-brown, small head. Roasty and perfumy. Mid-dry with dense rounded mouthfeel. Grapefruity hops interact well with roasty malt. Long hop bitter finish. Aromatic, fresh and very tasty!

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 9, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson (WBA) - clear amber colour with a solid pale beige foam; flowery aroma with notes of vanilla and caramel; good malt body, some sweetness balanced by a fair bitterness, quite tasty palate, long hoppy finish, slightly fruity and toasted - very interesting, rich and balanced

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On tap 01.22.09 at Popeye’s, Tokyo. Clear amber orange, off white head. Aroma is caramel and hops. Flavor is citrus hops, grass, caramel. Bitter and crisp, more like a pale ale than an amber ale.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2008
on tap at popeyes. copperish colour with decent lacing, light pine aroma, some dough and toffee flavours and a reasonable dry finish with some citric bitterness. a well-made amber ale but overshadowed by some of popeyes other offerings

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2008
Medium to dark amber, quite reddish, tallish, fine head. Very hoppy aroma, probably cascade, very fruity and citrusy, with a light malt character. Taste is better balanced but also dominated by hops. Lightish malt, with caramel, some fruit, tons of hops. Citrus and fruity. Bitter, hoppy finish. A very nice beer, though I would like a bit more malt and caramel. This is great on the hops, though.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 Wow...sold as a bricks###t house. Lots of malts finding their way to the top, with a pleasant smooth finish

thebeertourist (4648) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2008
On tap at Popeye, Tokyo. Copper colour with a small head. Citrus hop aroma. Good citrus hops flavours, quite bitter, but harmonious. Good carbonation. Great.
