2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
States on the bottle that this beer is better after ageing for at least 5 months, and can be kept for over 5 years. Being relatively lightly hoped and having a fairly low ABV I find this quite surprising. I personally can’t imagine how it would improve the beer. Other than that I agree on the whole with other comments, over carbonated for style, metallic etc.

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

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.

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
