350ml Can from Liquor Market Kent Boy's, Kyoto (¥324):
This one was a very poor & disappointing beer that seemed weak & well past its best despite the fact that it was well within date going by the writing on the can & only being brewed two months prior. There was slightly more going on with the taste than there was with the nose but it was still one-dimensional & basic with some grassy flavours & hay further on. The name on the can was a bit of a misdirection as well, it's definitely more of a kölsch than it is pale ale; not one that I'd recommend.

Eh this is only just a bit better than a standard pale lager. Slight biscuit/sweet aromas and flavors. Very forgettable

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L's place. Thanks Tom L. Golden. Graininess, minerals, a bit of vegetables, a bit sweetish, bitterish finish, rather light-bodied.

Primera cerveza artesana de Kioto según el cervecero. Una Ale muy suavecita, con ligeras notas de plátano, pan blanco y algunas notas de lúpulos nobles también muy suaves. No está mal, si no tienes más que industriales para elegir.
