TheGrandMaster (2335) - 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.

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 19, 2011
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.
Earlier Rating: 6/16/2011 Total Score: 3.7
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.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 4, 2013
Draught at Beer Belly, Osaka. Reddish-brown. Mid-palate and aftertaste a bit thin and short. But overall, good balance and aroma. Hoppy for an amber.

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.

Aroma is tropic fruit, some floral hops, no resin. Quite dry, only a little of everything. Nice fine bubbled mouthfeel. Not bad.
