jmgreenuk (9459) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle at Takumi. Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, some light tropical fruit, woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, dry, light resin, woody hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

330 ml bottle, Pour a hazy golden honeyed hue, with a good head of white froth. Aroma is all hops, mainly flora, some resin, and some citrus notes as well.Taste is a standard pale ale, sweetish notes, but very much pine and resin tastes, with some grapefruit, and intense going in to the lingering finish. Carbonation is average over a relatively light body.

asedzie (827) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Can from Carrefour Beitou. Exp 02/17. Very attractive pour - hazy amber with very slowly settling dense white head. Nose is pleasantly fruity and just a bit hop forward with strawberry and flowers. Texture is really nicely tuned- great smooth but substantial mouthfeel. Flavor is excellent, mildly sweet toffee malt at the outset, quickly overtaken by clean citrus hop resins, and finishes with a memorable mild bitterness and lingering hop resin flavor. Wow - really good - my first pale ale from Japan, this is outstanding.

Cantabrian (1131) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2016
American Pale Ale? Alright then. I wouldn’t have guessed by the flavour, although there is a razornably sharp grassiness somewhere there in the back, behind the fruits and the resin. Nice beer, certainly a great choice if you are in a supermarket in the Nagano Area. Colour is pale copper, well, AMBER. Aroma is fruits and resins, especially of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Palate is not as sticky, but still, with a decent medium body.

Dredd (940) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
Decent pale ale. The aroma is a mix of bread, pine hops and citrus. Flavor is mostly the sabe as the aroma with the hop pine finish dominating.

2.1
jc1762 (1436) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Poured into a taster showing barely translucent amber, no head, and light filtration. The nose shows roasted corn and fried seafood. Two bottles in row, I’m wondering is my batch off. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of light tartness and not much else. Light malty finish and barely any bitterness.
