UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Bottle from the brewery via Rakuten. It poured a nice rich red color with a light head. It was a little hoppy amber ale. Very tasty!

Yen 1150 on tap at Ushi Tora. Full flavoured and plenty of fruits make this a nice deviation from the standard pedestrian style often seen in amber ales. Good layer of fizz too. Really bordering on pale ale in style given the fruit expression. Lovely beer.

Fantastic house brew. Excellent effort with wonderful toffee malts, subtle yet meaningful grassy hops and some unexpected lift from some low key fizz. Some very attractive fruit sweetness kicks in late. Yen 900 for a UK pint at the Algate.

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.

Draught at Bungalow. Nice reddish-brown. Hoppy and pine aroma and flavour. A little thin, but very drinkable.
