Light bodied. Moderate roastiness. Fairly straight forward dark lager that would appeal to mainstream drinkers.

On tap at Hotel Okura, Fukuoka. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Roasted malts aroma. Sweet molasses and espresso flavours. Quite sweet and still some metal. A bit too sweet.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the hotel brewery. Sour kraut aroma with a touch of coffee. Milk chocolate flavor, with a lot of sourness and some off flavors. Something wrong with this one. Bad news at a huge price. Probably infected, but I paid almost $9 for it so I’ll put it up anyway, which I usually wouldn’t.
