Kind of a novelty act, I suppose. Some umami, soy-like aroma, with slightly rich fruit, maybe plums and raisins. Medium dark brown, tan head. Light notes of dark fruits and, again. A bit of the umami from the miso. Just a little salty. Thin-medium body. Interesting and unusual, but not terribly like a lager. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 23, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’ place. Thanks Naama. Hazy amber. Malt, caramel, miso, sweetish, a bit of umami, slightly bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. faroeviking (11331) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Botella. Dark brown colour. Sweet toasty malty caramel aroma. Flavour is sweet with toasty malt and caramel along with some miso and dark fruit. jmgreenuk (10322) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle at Takumi Craft Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a murky medium reddish brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is resin hop, treacle, light fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a smooth malty yeast light resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2016
Copper pour with a thin pale tan head. Toasty, slight toffee aromas; slightly winey, caramel taste cut with a bit of salt. Not bad

Tasting at Matt’sfiery1 (1793) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Hazy amber color. Soil, beans, caramel, moderately sweet. I don’t see the point.
330ml bottle, pours a reddish copper colour. Nose of bubble gum and classic lager notes. Flavour is lightly raisin, dark matly, and even spiced on top of a dark lager base. I’d say this is interesting. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle - Caramel and some sweetness. Clear dark gold with a decent white head. Light caramel and a nice light finish. Not bad. mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
330mL bottle, pours a hazy bright red amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out the miso notes upfront, with lots of bubblegum, some herbal notes, and toasted bread. Flavour is sweeter than I expected from the nose, with toasted caramel and bready notes, maybe a little bubblegum. Not getting any of the miso notes. Pretty solid, if unremarkable beer.

Has a nice light brown colour, though not much head. The aroma is mostly caramelly, not overly complex. Very light body. Touch of red miso character though it is a bit understated, lends a little bit of umami. The thin palate lets me down - it could really use from more sweetness to pull the unique character across the palate.
