On hand-pull at Beer Belly (Osaka). A creamy palate, the malt in juicy with a slight touch of chalkiness. The fruity slowly comes through, with a moderate bitterness in the finish.

Nice wee pale ale with that American flavor but made in the Japanese Alps. It is this last fact that raises the beer up above its US counterparts in my view. Brewing hoppy beers in a markt that tht likes hophead beers is a lot less risky that brewing them for a market that thinks Asahi Super Dry is the tops.
