1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Clear greenish color, if the green wasn’t there, I’m not too sure it would even be yellow. Tall white head, very sticky. Nose of wasabi, nice fresh root, earthy, no hop or malt. The flavor is a bit tangy, like pith or mud, or some herbal thing, nearly no wasabi heat. The finish is nearly non-existent. Just a hint of wasabi all over the place but no malt or hop to speak of. I like the novelty, but a 6 pack or even a pint to enjoy wouldn’t even be feasible. Thanks Dan (I think)!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a clear pale green tinted beer with a small fine bubbled white head. A lighter green than the regular Wasabi Ale. Definately made with wasabi as one whiff will tell you. Not a funky artificial smell though. A dry crisp flavor that packs a spicy punch. The wasabi is certainly noticable, nothing muted or masked about it’s flavor. This is much better than the Wasabi Ale but not one I’d call a session beer ay all! Worth a try as a novelty!
