On sale at Hans Store in Seoul. Great bargain amongst all the other high priced imports in Korea. Cloudy amber pour. Citrus aroma. Refreshing sessionable ale...would be great for a summer BBQ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange beer with a small beige head. Grassy and soapy aroma. Really nice taste. Medium bodied. Sweet and ripe/dried apricots. A hint of leather. Round, soft and full bitterness. This reminds me a little of Yamazaki whisky actually in a weird way. Some smokiness. This is a really good beer. Very well done. Highly recommended.

From the can. L: pours a dark gold/copper with a small fizzy white head. S: biscuity malt, sweet, caramel and hints of citrus. T: caramelly malt taste, some touches of citrus, grapefruit, a little pine. F: really smooth, solid malty body, some tang, and a nice moderate bitter finish. O: I’ve had this probably more than anything other beer, ever, so it is my palate’s standard reference point. It’s a standard, well-rounded, delicious ale for all seasons.

ALLOVATE (2685) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2015
A very attractive ale indeed. Satin sheened, hazy deep amber with fine, intermittent carbonation eddying up to an inch of whipped up white foam. Fruity nose hinting at lychee, mango and passionfruit with a spicy, raw hop edge. Palate is a continuation of that wonderful aroma. All fruit with a tang of lychee and passionfruit atop a honey malt base. Quite light on the tongue with soft carbonation and a softer, clean and short finish. Bitterness of under-ripe fruit. Quite juicy and sumptuous. Incredibly sessionable. Hit the mark. Lovely! (35cL can, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Drank from a can. A very nice beer! The taste is soft and fruity. It’s quite gentle, making it suitable for relaxing after a sauna or an onsen.

jc1762 (312) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 2, 2015
Shows golden honey comb with moderate filtration and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows just a faint hint of sweet malts. Not a lot of aroma even upon warming up. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated showing a hint of sweet malts but mostly moderately intense flavors of tart apricot and some pineapple. Overall, this is not bad.

Can picked up in Yokohama. Copper colour with slim off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, fruit. Similar for the taste plus malty caramel. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Not bad.
