4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The colour was strong copper amber, a bit cloudy, with a strong frothy head and medium carbonation. The aroma was strong green and resiny with hops and light malt balance. The taste had sweet orange citrus malt fruit and long bitter hoppy resin finish. This beer was nice crisp and bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tanakaya for 375 yen (pretty cheap for Japan). Stinky, cat pissy hops on the front with pineapple and mango as it warms up. Good carbonation with the same tropical fruit on the palate with a bit of passion fruit. The finish is a little bitter and the passion fruit notes clash a tad, but still a good NZ pale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Really big bleach white head and clear golden body. Aroma of hops, hops, and more hops, but just a single hop profile, no layering. Flavour is the same single hop profile with a bit of a weaker finish. Drinkable, solid, but middling.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A perfect example of the Aussies doing American Pale Ale well. Beautiful hop profile, hoppy but not overly aggressive with a good malt backbone.
