Jyrsa (507) - - JAN 21, 2016
Can from I-don’t-remember-where. Pours hazy yellow with a hint of red and a strong off-white head. Fruity, sweet nose. Malty and surprisingly earthy with some traces of herbal hops. Possibly not at it’s best as BBE seems to have gone quite some time ago.

(Yo-Ho Yona Yona Ale) Can 330 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.5%. Deep orange coloured body, clear, with a good sized white head sitting on top, with very good retention, leaving a nice lace around the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, light fruity notes, peach and apricot but faint. Taste is nicely bitter with citrus, grass, quite hoppy, lemon peel. Thin body, nicely carbonated. Good, thirst queancher.

Can at home. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits, biscuit malt, caramel, soft peach, floral notes, some pine resin, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Body is medium. A rather mild and fruity sweet APA, but also quite smooth with high drinkability. Pleasant beer!

altonbrownd (5770) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Can in Tokyo. Nice golden body with big head. Nose is malty, and straw. Taste very smooth of malts, butter, and lots of hops. Really enjoyable and creamy after quite a few not so great lagers.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Can dated September 2015. Lightly hazed amber with a short off-white head and some retention. Aroma is hoppy and malty with dominant notes of grapefruit, crystal malt, pepper, lemon / lemon-scented soap with a distinct off-note of chlorine. Medium body, semi-sweet, lightly savory, low bitterness, lightly oily, silky-fine carbonation, finishing with bready caramel malt and that unpleasant lemon soap quality. Kind of a disappointment compared to the other Yo-Ho beers I’ve had recently, and there’s a small amount of oxidized malt in the nose and mouth that suggests this one is past its prime.
