Pours a medium attractive gold. Small white head. Smell is pleasant sweet honey like malt. Taste is similar honey like sweetness, followed by a finish of noticeable tart hop bitterness. A bit sweet at times, but for a pale lager, this isn’t too bad. Not as good as it warms up, but if had cold this is pretty decent.

i saw this on the menu at nobu last week. however it is called nobu special reserve STOUT. which was even more interesting because this isnt what any of us would consider a stout. first off the color is a light amber golden color, definately not the dark color you would associate with a stout. little to no nose of metallic rustiness. mouth was dominant in crisp malt character and more sweetness that pushes rice characters. i guess this is the only place in the world you can get this brew....but its not a stout by american standards...maybe the japanese think it is??

Although this brewer is primarily known for their sake, they do make this one brew exclusively for the Nobu restaurants in New York and Tokyo. 500 ml bottle. Pale golden with a light red tint and a white head. Sweet caramel and pale malts with a noble hop spiciness. Flavour has a light fruitiness in addition to the sweet malt and hop spiciness. Crisp, clean, finish. A touch of tapioca like sweetness as well.
