On tap at Raku. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A nice floral and caramel nose. Toast, more floral hops, light citrus. Very smooth. willisread (3554) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle from Shinanoya in Dogenzaka. Pours a relatively clear copper with a half-finger of foam. Malt-forward nose with some muscat and apricot notes. Body is thin but with a prickly carbonation that is quite refreshing. Again malty, but nice earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Very quaffable and refreshing. Quite surprised actually. Not amazing, but for a British pale this is certainly one of the better offerings in Japan. mrjez (660) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2015
L: pours a clear dark copper with a finger of off-white head.
S: caramel malt sweetness, equal parts earthy and sugary.
T: tastes like a toned-down London Pride, it’s nice but not full-flavoured enough.
F: a tad uneventful in the mouthfeel, kinda flat.
O: a half decent English PA, not sure I’d seek it out again. biirusaikou (2705) - - SEP 1, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2015 Draught at The Griffon. Quite creamy mouthfeel, leans towards sweet caramel rather than hops, burnt brioche, grass, sweet finish. Meh, not my type of pale ale, more malty than hoppy for sure. Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Aroma: Malt, orange, dried apricot.
Flavor: Rounded orange blended with light apricot, lightly bitter with medium dry finish.
Comment: A solid ale.

On tap at Kyoto Jibeer 2014. Standard hazy bronze, creamy head. Subtle hop aromas, wet leaves. Smooth and silky. Fruit flavours were there but again subtle. Nice sessionable pale. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at Dig Bar, a copper gold with a grape aroma, fruity + bitter taste and a dry finish. A nice enough beer. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Tap at Keyaki. Brown coloured, small off-white head. Aroma spicy malt, slight citrus there too. Taste is good, easy drinking, light caramel, bit of lemon at the end. Pretty nice. Solid.

Botella. Good fruity pale ale. Hazy deep golden colour, nice white medium head. Fruity hoppy bit piney aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good fruitiness, pleasant bitterness, citrus, some sweetness and a nice dry hoppy fruity finish. AvidDirtman (25) - , JAPAN - MAY 6, 2009
belmonge, semolina, and all other slighty nasty things we hated at school but would want to try again to see if they really were that bad. easy drinking city. coffee nose but pale as as an albino painted in white, earl gray, and hints of indian tea fields, milk and two sugars. this would go well with a fry up after a night out on wife beater.
