Hand pump at the Taproom. Light body, inviting smoky aromas. Nutty, malty, lightly smoky. Not a big fan of the hand pump but this was ok.

Aroma hard to pick up, slightly roasty. Not particularly heavily smoked, just a light dusting of smoke over an OK brown ale. A little thin. GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
140 ml glass on cask at Baird’s Bashamichi Taproom. Dark amber with light tan head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, roast. Tastes of toffee, roast, light smoky notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Pretty nice. biirusaikou (2705) - - JUL 22, 2014
Plum, nutty, low carbonation, smoky finish. Not my style but a well done cask ale. Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2014

5.7% cask on tap, 1000 yen tasting set at Basamichi taproom(200 yen more than Numazu). A clear dark ruby brown. Smooth, woodsy, maple, caramel, tasty stuff. nutty, a touch sweet but creamy & great. Chocolatey nose, smooth, easy drinking velvety goodness. A great cask ale. EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Tap in Bashamichi Tap Room. Really dark brown ale, reddish edges. Nose is very malty, chocolate and roasted malt. Some ale fruitiness but it’s mainly a lot of malt. Nice chocolatey ale with good balance in those malty flavours. jonno (2913) - JAPAN - SEP 29, 2011
Smoked ale to go along with Chuck’s smoked meats. Not overly smokey as Mark said, just a solid bodied ale with some cured ham and salted fish. Fairly easy drinking and straight forward. Good for a few. KyotoLefty (10688) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 24, 2011
Handpump at the Taproom. Something like a smoked brown ale. Caramel aroma with rather lightish smoke. Smokier flavor with caramel, chocolate. Smoke still medium level, less than in Bamberg. A very tasty smoked ale, almost flat, with a very smooth, rich body. Great with BBQ.
