willisread (3395) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 Re-rate: Tap at Tsuki To Taiyo. Very mild aromas of fruit. Body is a tad heavy with more fruit and very little hop character. Slight bitter finish. Well-balanced but fairly boring. Tap at CBM Jimbocho. Served in an English pint glass. Golden amber color with a nice off-white soapy head. Fruit forward aromas present. Apricot, peach, cantaloup with hints of citrus on the nose. Great malty balance and fruit flavors on the palate. Creamy mouthfeel with fruit basket flavors hanging on until the finish. Nice dry and fruity finish. Very well-balanced.

Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle from Yamaoka. Handsome dark golden brown, delicious aromas of hops, some caramel. Rich and satisfying without being the slightest bit overdone in any way. Remarkable balance, if a little lacking in complexity. Not quite as incredible as their IPA, but still a beer of very high quality.

Tap at Popeye. Clear light amber colour, little head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, bit of grain. Taste is nicely bitter, light citrus hints, slightly spicy maltiness. Very easy drinking. Solid.
