Scipio (761) - 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.

tricksta_p (2409) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2015
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 (4591) - 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 (8795) - 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.

brandon31g (24) - HONG KONG - OCT 28, 2015
Pours an amber colour with medium off-white head and watery body. Evident aroma of dried apricot on nose, with hints of tropical fruit and grain. Taste is sweetness of malt, honey and bitterness of citrus hops. However, the flavour is a bit vague.

Can 350ml. Pours orange with a creamy thick white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is subtle tropical fruits and grainy. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Taste has some grapefruit and citrus and fresh cut grass. Not bad, nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

350ml can. Slightly cloudy, orangey deep golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Slightly sulphureous aroma, hints of egg, citrusy hoppy overtones with lemon touch, hints of lemon biscuit. Taste is citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon, a touch of yuzu, quince and lemongrass, a minimally sulphureous touch of yolk.

A wonderful golden/bronze in colour with a thin, bright white head. Orange and mango on the nose, smells quite sweet. Honey and orange flavours with some citrus hop bitterness at the backend. A subtle sweet malty undertone runs throughout. A reasonably crisp finish, well carbonated and a pleasant orange fused aftertaste.
