Scipio (831) - 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.

colui72 (662) - HONG KONG - SEP 13, 2016
Clear golden with a small but lasting head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruit and caramel. Taste is malty, tending to sweet. Caramel and honey, some fruity hoppiness, dry finish. Not an amazing ale but fairly tasty.

JaKeAFC (957) - ITALY - AUG 9, 2016
35 cl can. Light amber color, clear, nice stable offwhite head. Light smell of pale ale. Light malty aroma, a little caramelized, nice american style hopping, may be dry hopping, moderately biting. Taste is balanced, lightly bitter. A decent pale ale, above the average, refreshing.

SlovakSniper (5086) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Robe cuivrée et mousse blanche crémeuse qui ne meurt jamais. Au nez, céréales qui ont un âge vénérable et houblons citronnés qui me semblent revivre. Au goût, voilà une pale ale américaine qui manque cruellement de punch ou qui a déjà touchée son chèque de pension. Ceci dit, bien buvable et sans aucun doute meilleur que d’autres trucs jeunes et fougueux.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2016
0.33 l can from 7-Eleven, Tokyo. Amber clear with nice head. Fruity and malty taste. Hops also, but more in the bittering way not the modern citrus like dry hopping. Reminds me Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Classic APA style. Pint draught @ The Aldgate, Shibuya, Tokyo (Real Ale version). Amber, clear, no head. At first malts and water - quite mild. Later on when it warms up it will get some bittering hops too. Not as much as in the can version, though.

Can @ home. Clear golden colour with a fairly large white head. Smells and tastes quite malty, slightly bitter, slightly hoppy. Quite malty though. Easily drinkable. Thin to medium body, nice carbo
