Almost no head, just thin white film. Hazy amber body. Citric tropical fruit hop aroma with sweetish notes. Taste is deep, firm sweet tropical fruit and resiny hops. Dry, oily hop aftertaste. Excellent. (0.25l on tap.)

Draught @ LBK Craft, Nara. Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts, pine and toffee. Taste is smooth, slightly caramely malty with some pine and resin. Finish is smooth, slightly crisp and sweetish with some pine and caramel. Okay.

mrjez (1135) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2016
Tap at Kamikaze. A clear deep amber with a beige head of tightly packed bubbles and nice lacing. Aroma of toasted malt with caramel and hopping. Subdued at first but emerges after a few minutes. The flavour hits straight up, a nice surprise of rich earthy malt and lightly charred caramel, a good balance with brighter piney hop notes. Good medium feel, almost too soda spritzy but with a good malty feel lingering with easy bitterness. Well put together.

3.8
jinroh (4531) - ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2016
Tap at Waseda oktoberfest. Pours nice amber, looking beautifully clear in the glass. Some bubbles. Aroma has some roast caramel, bit of herbal hops. Mainly roast though. Taste is roast bitter. Clean and actually very nice. Had this from a bottle many times before but tap version really is nicer. Thumbs up!

3.5
Ritzn (3673) - GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Aroma is tropic fruit, some floral hops, no resin. Quite dry, only a little of everything. Nice fine bubbled mouthfeel. Not bad.

4.3

It’s easy to undersell a beer like this, because it’s not an IPA or a bold Stout. What it is is an incredibly nice malty Amber with sweet caramel fading even into light milk chocolate while finishing mildly bitter with good citrus notes. It’s actually just a fucking good beer that would be elite even in America.
