2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the 2008 Hiroshima City Beer Festa. Surprisingly light body. Sweetness well-balanced with a burnt toasty bitter.
Pours red amber with a soft ample white head, lighter coloured than expected. Nose of cocoa, strawberry, yeast, and toasted brown bread. Good mouthfeel, carbonation is just right, and creamy. Again, on the sweet side for the style. The sweetness does bring out a bit more chcolate, which otherwise might be muted.Some modest melon and peach hop. Slight butter, and nuts. Pretty sure theres a bit of wheat to bring out a touch of citus. It’s very straightforward and inofensive minihame2 (727) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Nice amber colour, small tan head. Weak aroma, little bit of malts but that’s it. Soft taste, some bitterness towards the end. Watery mouthfeel, not much of carbonation. Not a fan of this one. melush (4486) - SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014

Biscuit, grain. Caramel malt, cake, plum, mild sour finish. Not bad, plenty of caramel without being too sweet, very drinkable. Westkyoto77 (636) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 11, 2013

Canned. Cloudy amber, rich firm head. Sweetish and mildly roasty. Medium bodfied with roudned mouthfeel. Buttery with notes of tart cherries and tin. Low bitterness. KyotoLefty (10610) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 29, 2008
Draught at the Microbrewer’s Beer Festa in Hiroshima. Very light color, almost like a Vienna. Light body as well. Big caramel flavor, nutty as well, and not too sweet. A nice dunkel that avoids the pitfall of too much sweetness while still having good flavor.

Sweet malt, hint of sour fruit, copper, pours a small toffee head. Mild sweet malt, hint of fruit, light bodied, sweet and bitter. Average, but rare to try this one. Thanks to mr_kimchee for sharing and Thanks to Crockett for bring this back from "the land of the rising sun!"
