GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Can as Kyoto Pale Ale, blue label. Chill haze golden color with good foam. Nose is canned corn, creamed corn. Taste is fairly clean, mild citrus, good body, low acid, big breadiness. Fairly drinkable, but I thought this was a pale ale as in hoppy beer, but turns out that this is just the pasteurized version of their Kolsch.

HuskerTan (1948) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Can. A- Cereal, grains, subtle lemon, slightly hoppy. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Subtle bitterness, cereal, straw, subtle citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, off tasting finish. O- The can matched this one exactly but also said pale ale on it. They must be confused and this beer definitely tastes confusing. It’s not good. I feel bad for Kyoto.

FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2016
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Pleasant sweet fruity esters in the aroma. Pale, large frothy head. Slightly dry papery lagery taste, but not a pale lager per se. A bit watery palate. Slight breadiness. A bit papery in the finish. Another lager-gone-wrong experience.

suurjuust (3254) - ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2016
Hazy golden pour, medium white head, filmy retention. Nose is toasty, malty, some fruity and hoppy-doughy notes. Love the toast. Flavor hasless toast than the nose, but more semi-floral hops. Hops and doughy notes in the finish. Smells better than it tastes.

Westkyoto77 (628) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2014
Draught at brewpub, Fushimi. Murky gold with a thin, short-lived head. Interesting aromas of yeast and stone fruit. Medium body, finely carbonated. Peach, banana, touch of spice. Not bad. Distinctive, certainly, but can't help but feel it lacks something.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4857) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2013
399 yen from Suvaco. 5% nice clear gold color, thin effervescent white head. Classic kolsch look. Sweet bready malt aroma, minor grain notes and a hint of hops. Nice full bodied mouthfeel, a bit earthy flavor, slightly rough but a crisp light bitter finish. A pretty good kolsch which is perfect for this summer heat. Give it a shot this summer folks.
