Capa (2956) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2007
@ GJBF 2007. Reminds me of a weizen, but with something added...like miso (I guess). Banana and sweet malts, with some yeast. Spices are noticeable in the flavor, but the miso adds something Ive never experianced before. Really interesting. Not bad, actually.

Davros (2949) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours murky brown with a large lasting creamy head and big chunks of sediment. Nose shows loads of rich malt. Lots of caramel, prunes, figs, caramelised apples, treacle and a big melanoidin character. Similarly malty flavours, lots more of the above fruit and caramel, almost candy-like. Also a savoury character shows along with some soft alcohol. Finishes weakly though with a hint of cardboard. Nice med-high carbonation suits the beer well.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011. Cloudy mid brown appearance. Very soft savory nose - malty with a hint of meat. Interesting flavour - buckwheat, dried beef jerky, woody fig notes (like a Belgian dubbel).

kevinsenn (2072) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is mostly caramel, with lots of lager. Caramel and toasty taste, some savouriness, dry lagery finish. Not bad!

davidm (2071) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Excellent beer. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Brown, with a frothy white head.

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011
It pours hazy dark amber, with red highlights, low carbonation and a foamy beige head. Smell of Caramel and plum, figs and brown suger. Dry feel, Huge range of Taste. Melon, cherry, chocolate, berries (strawberry) and a sweet dry aftertaste. Very enjoyable. There is a miso flavour in the back but its subtle.

floydian1 (1410) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 30, 2009
33cl brown bottle. A clear dark ruby-brown beer with a loose rapidly dissipating tan head. Light aromas of sweet caramel malts and little else. Flavour is lightly roasted sweet malts with hints of dark fruits and very subtle miso soup. Softly carbonated with thin texture and light-medium body. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Rather lacks the wow factor given how expensive it is.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2013
330 ml bottle from Seijo Ishii @ Nagoya station. Red miso lager - I wonder how this miso was used in the brewing process? It definitely pours a bit red, well, more like reddish brown to be exact. Hazy, foam with some brown notes, dissipating fast. Aroma is quite sweet, some alcohol, cookies and peach. When it gets warmer then aroma improves, there is something salty now, also sweet flowers. Taste sensation is strong at first but not so much when I try to elaborate. Fruity, malty - but not too sweet. Can I taste some umami? Somehow it doesnt feel to be very balanced, a bit rough from the edges. Aftertaste is bitter and quite short. Hoppy and watery. Overall, interesting take and I salute for using local Japanese ingredients to make this beer more interesting. I do like the idea and concept - but I also think that it is possible to improve from here.
