Can. A- Apricot, peach, mango, subtle bitterness, subtle biscuits. A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Apricot, peach, stone fruits, mild bitterness, grassy. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- I really like how these Japanese do Pale Ales. They are mild on the bitterness and not aggressive. They show off the juicy fruit side of the hops. This one was delicious.

rosenbergh (10409) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2016
350 ml can. Canned on 16/03. (Selver) Vőru, Estonia.
Clear amber golden color with a mid-size white head. The aroma is mild bitterness, sweet fruity hops and some sweetish maltiness. The flavor is a bit harsh hops, moderate bitterness and dryish maltiness. Feels a bit unfresh.

Orange pour with a thin white head. Not much on the nose - malt and a little citrus. Taste is more of the same, malty, some orange, tiny bit of bitterness. It’s alright, just found it a bit meh..

Benzai (14123) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Can @ home. Clear orange golden color, average sized off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly but leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, don’t get much more initially. Taste malts, hops, bitterness, lightly tea. Firm carbonation, decent body. Hmm ok, I don’t dislike it as I like bitter beers, but I had expected it to be a little more fruity.
