3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin body carries malt, pine, citrus. Average carbonation. Good level of bitterness. First bottle was quite annoying, my palate was teased with light watercolour washes of flavour which disappeared as soon as they arrived. Second bottle was better, as I had adjusted to it. If you are driving, this is an OK, drinkable beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light sourish and overripe fruity nose, with kiwi and citrus notes. Medium copper/amber color. Some caramel up front, touch of grapefruit, and small spicy hoppiness. Very light body, almost watery. Session stuff, taken a notch lower even. While it is drinkable, it seems tired and weak.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a decent white head. Biscuity, caramel and pine aromas. Taste is malty, citrus, and a fairly bitter finish. A little thin but not surprising given the ABV, has pretty good flavour

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a taster showing no head and translucent caramel brown with moderate filtration.
The nose shows a strong biscuit malt sweetness.
The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of extremely subtle malts and sparse notes of bittering hops at the end. Very watery in general and a bit too light for anything.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 10/10/2015. Pours a clear dark golden with a small head. The nose features some fruity hops with some metalic notes. Flavour wise, there’s carmel malt, some citrus fruit, and a pretty firm spicy bitterness, again with a slight metallic taste. The texture is thin and the carbonation average. A bit too disjointed to really impress, but still packed with flavour for a little beer.
