3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks again to Chris for this one. Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden with a short lived white head. Fruity aroma has pineapple, orange, pear, and melon. The taste contains much of the impressions given by the aroma. However, there is a bitter grainy taste that is quite potent in here as well. It begins fruity, and than gradually is replaced with the graininess that extends into the aftertaste. More light in body with a slick texture. Kind of refreshing actually. Pretty good. Much better than your standard Japanese beer.

Can @ Home, thanks sint! Aroma is big fruity and flowery hops, some caramel malt, touch of grass. Flavour is full and malty with a light fruity hop bitterness, some earthy notes, some tropical notes in the finish. Nice. Could indeed drink this yona yona.

Can sample at a tasting at tomís place. Thanks Tom. Hazy amber with floaties. Sweet fruity aroma, some peach and toffee too. Sweet and fruity taste, full-bodied, soft fruity/ yeasty finish. Old?

No head, light golden. Aroma of hops. Light malt sweet is balanced perfectly with a healthy amount of bitter hops. Refreshing

Hazy amber color, small white head dissapears quickly. Smell is floral, caramel and hops. Medium carbonation. Taste is fruity, caramel, sweetness, hops, even some dark chocolate bitterness and hints of spices(?). Overall: pleasant surprise, really interesting taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small can. Pours a nice semi-cloudy amber body but the head is only minimal. Never as tall as shown in the picture here. Aroma has melon and pineapple. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and soapy. Hops are there but they have no bite. As a result it feels a bit too sweet.

Hazy orange body, white head. Aroma has soapy caramel, flat mellow fruitiness. Same melon Aroma than in wit. Flavour is quite flat and slick maltiness status on muoti Ford quite long. Pretty mediocre pale ale.

12 oz can (from Maruetsu supermarket, Nakano, Tokyo). Light amber to orange color, a bit hazy. White head (not much). Aromaís: malty sweet, fragrant aromatic hops with a little fruit (confit) retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet with a starting bitterness. Light bodied but not thin. Finishes with a delicate bitterness and some grain. Certainly decent.
