Clear red brown beer, aery beige head, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sugary, some dried fruits, toast, bit nutty. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little sugary, bitter touch, some caramel, bit salty, toast, thin. Aftertaste: salty touch, mocha, umami, bit toasted, hint of dried fruits, bitter touch, but overall a watery impression. Too bad, cause the smell was so promising!
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 Botellas de 33 cl. Color marron oscuro. Sabor a malta, un toque de caramelo, ligeramente amargo. Comprada en una enoteca en JR Nagoya Takashimaya larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
Medium tan head. Hazy opaque black body with ongoing carbonation. Fruity red beans aroma with toffee and caramel pudding notes. Dry-sweet toffee and rice pudding taste with grassy notes. Fullish body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish fruity soy sauce aftertaste with licorice and alcohol notes. Nice, unusual, and harmonic. Very drinkable.

Good appearance, smooth lasting beige head. Smells like not a lot but tastes with plenty of malt back bone and interesting flavour. Dark chocolate, soy, bread. Well balanced palate and carbonation but not a lot lasting after a mouthful. Good beer, very drinkable and suited to many Japanese dishes.

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. faroeviking (11343) - 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. maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 21, 2017
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. omhper (25956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2008
