The nose is basically non-existent, and the beer looks murky, with an off-white head that faded quickly. Very high carbonation on the palate, making for a fairly crisp finish. The flavours that push through aren't very... Authentic. They seem artificial and not alluring in the slightest.

GenDV138 (3549) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2015
330 ml bottle at Izakaya Seki in DC. 2013.11 stamped on the lower left side of the label. Mostly clear yellow with just a hint of haziness, big rapid forming off-white head. Aromas of lemon lime, floral notes, light funk, Brett, caramel. Tastes of lemon citrus, floral notes, citrus peel, light Brett. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty enjoyable.

Barreras (1296) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a clean and clear yellow color. Aroma of rice and yeast. Taste is simple with a tint of honey and malt. Slight metallic flavor in he aftertaste. Overall, a simple beer that was not very flavorful or complex.

maekchu (2775) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya. Grain, yeast, and honey aromas, with a very light cardboard note. Hazy amber/strae color, thin head, and good lace. Caramel, honey, apples, peaches, and light spicy hopping. Thin-medium body, a bit soapy with the somewhat over-the-top bottle conditioning carbonation, slightly dry finish. Okay. The carbonation does interfere a bit.

Bread, mild caramel aroma.Caramel malt, quite fizzy, cake, touch of orange, floral hops, clean finish. Nothing too exciting but ok malty caramel ale.

TBone (14272) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle 330ml "Tokyo Beer" 5.5 % (sampled in Kyoto)
Hazy amber color, small steady white head. Grainy, bready, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grainy, fruity flavor, some yeastyness. Mango, very light pine touch, sweetish. Really gives quite "bottle conditioned" feeling.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3347) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Yamaya, it no longer says Pale Ale on the bottle just Bottle Conditioned. Bottled Sept. 2013. It pours a decent looking cloudy honey amber with a thin head of foam that dissipates somewhat quickly. The aroma is an appetizing fruity/herbal hoppiness. The body is on the thin side, it’s kind of watery. While the taste doesn’t measure up to the aroma. The taste is a bit chalky, pilsner grains, a bit bready, some caramel with some hop notes but much more subdued than in the aroma. Mild mouth puckering finish. Ok

fajry (1157) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2014
Plechovka. Bledo zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa ovocná, citrusová a jemne korenistá. V chuti som cítil ovocie citrusové a liči - ako často hovorí môj kamarát pivný :) Celkom pitné pivo.

czlowiekwiadro (428) - POLAND - APR 16, 2014
ładny, chmielowy słodki zapach. nie tak mocny jak w ipach, ale w dalszym ciągu przyjemny. piana słaba, kolor złoty, ale mocno zmętniony. w smaku dość słodki, żywiczny z przyzwoitą goryczką

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours nice orange, sightly hazy, visible carbonisation. Head is nice when freshly poured, dissipates fast. Aroma is quite fruity but not sweet. Thee is a small sour undertone, some herbal hops. Tropical fruits also. taste is a bit sour for some reason - making me think that maybe there is something wrong with the beer I am having. Otherwise there is some honey mixed with herbal hop flavours. Body is not too strong, feels actually quite nice as it is. Overall, a good ale, will need to try it again though to understand if this sourness should be there or not.
