Stew41 (1754) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2011
Tap at Ushi Tora (Yen 950). Again a very well made cask / hand pulled ale. Low fizz and fruits are quite subdued; rather ’flat’ relative to the Baird ESB sampled recently. Still, at the risk of sounding like a broken record very well made and wholly quaffable.

Can from a Natural Lawson convenience store in Shinjuku. Soft pine hops and stone fruit in the nose. Amarillo hops, mango, bready and caramel malt. Dry, mildly bitter. Tingly carbonation and light-ish body. Would love to try this again as I don’t think the can did it justice.

marcus (6780) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Can from Healthy Spirits. Pours amber wit a decent beige head and a bready aroma. There is a sweet toffee flavor and a carbonated slightly bitter finish. A good session beer.

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2011
Can. Amber pour with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is soft spicy hops, caramel, sweet malt and fruit notes. Taste is more spicy hops, sweet malt, chewy caramel, dried fruit and grains. Body is light-medium with a soft, fizzy carbonation. Finishes with more grains, toasted malt, chewy caramel and fruit notes.

pacond (187) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Canned. Scored this one in Kyoto. Well balanced, malt biscuit, caramel sweetness all adds to this good hoppy pale ale. Very enjoyable, glad I found it.

Can 330ml. Very nice beer. Aromas of apricot, biscuit, and caramel. Taste is mostly sweet, with good length. Palate is velvety, ticklish, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2010
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.
