Scipio (740) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

330ml can from Masuyo. Slight aromas of tropical fruit and pine. Not that intense. Flavor is very malty. Creamy mouthfeel. Nothing special.

scender (3) - - FEB 16, 2015 does not count
Can poured at home. Full off-white head with hints of mango. Slightly hazy orange-brown appearance with moderate carbonation. Does not taste like an American Pale Ale, but a slightly hopped kolsch or saison even. Creamy and full-bodied. Caramel malt. A very different and pleasant treat!

yngwie (14629) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2015
Can, at Cardinal. An unclear, orange colored beer with a dense, off-white to beige head leaving lacings. It’s rather weak on the nose, fruitiness and lightly bready malts, and pine cones. Lightly bitter on the palate, medium dry and medium full body, with a soft carbonation. Pine cones, fruits and bready malts in the flavor, mostly fruity in the swallow. An easy drinkable beer, but lacking personality. 141101

Moebbels (401) - FINLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange body with an off-white head that settles down to an uneven layer. Nose has mild floral ,rapeseed and caramel notes. Taste is fairly sweet with a nice, mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is on the lively side with a nice,full palate. Quite nice, subtle and well balanced pale ale. The aromas are probably quite subdued due to this being and older can.

12 oz can. Pours a light cloudy copper color with a foamy head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor has some sweet fruit, caramel, and medium maltiness. Some apple flavor specifically. A strange soapy flavor in the background as well. Interesting beer. Not too bad.
