Mostly dry, also cheesy: a note of provolone. A note of caramel, a little citrus... Mmm, it is okay, but not my thing. Definitely will work better in a pairing, that is what I would rather do.

mansquito (5855) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Curry-ya, NYC bottle: pours bronze with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, earthy. Taste is kind of bland. Not too seeet or very bitter. Mild aftertaste. Not bad.

Bottle in LA. Pleasant, easy drinking ale with fruity yeast esters and some hops coming through.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2015
From tap at Setagaya Summer Festival 2015. Poured into a paper cup - with a massive head that just refuses to settle down. Finally I get through the foam and see some hazy amber colour. Aroma is mostly soap water, also some malts but not much else. Taste is bitterish, bit of fruits, somewhat messy but still drinkable. I guess this is your average Japanese ji-biiru nothing more, nothing less.

BeErikS (40) - TAIWAN - MAY 3, 2015
Poured from a bottle (or three) in Hong Kong. Pours a nice amber with moderate head, retention, and lacing. Light biscuit aroma, not much hops on the nose. Very dry with bread and biscuit overtones and a light crisp bitter finish. A light crisp ale that I might have guessed to be a craft lager. A pleasant but not particularly special or memorable beer, but if you're drinking ale at sunrise this might just hit the spot.

ikigai (75) - California, USA - APR 30, 2015
4/30/15 12 oz bottle. Darker Amber color with small head. Very little aroma or taste to it. Slight carmel malt flavor but very watery and light. Not gonna buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4855) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 22, 2015
Japanese Brewery 148. Bottle from World Beer Market as Kawaba Red Ale served in a pint glass. It pours a nice amber brown with a light beige head. My first whiff gave me fruity notes while a deeper inhalation brought forth caramel and figs. Med-thin bodied with a tongue scraping mouthfeel. The taste is caramel & candied figs but it finishes on a harsh medicinal bitterness. Shame as the nose was quite promising.

trapped (2690) - New York, TURKEY - APR 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark amber with small foamy off-white head, faint caramel aroma, high carbonation, thin body, watery caramel taste, abrupt finish. Feels quite weak.

Bottle. Deep red color. Not a huge flavor. Malty and pretty bland. Easy drinking but pretty blah

Pours a nice amber. Nice balanced beer like the snow weizen form Kawaba I would not go out of my way to get it but would have it if I was having Japanese.
