mrjez (557) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2016
Tap at Kamikaze. A clear deep amber with a beige head of tightly packed bubbles and nice lacing. Aroma of toasted malt with caramel and hopping. Subdued at first but emerges after a few minutes. The flavour hits straight up, a nice surprise of rich earthy malt and lightly charred caramel, a good balance with brighter piney hop notes. Good medium feel, almost too soda spritzy but with a good malty feel lingering with easy bitterness. Well put together.

jinroh (1365) - ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2016
Tap at Waseda oktoberfest. Pours nice amber, looking beautifully clear in the glass. Some bubbles. Aroma has some roast caramel, bit of herbal hops. Mainly roast though. Taste is roast bitter. Clean and actually very nice. Had this from a bottle many times before but tap version really is nicer. Thumbs up!

Ritzn (991) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Aroma is tropic fruit, some floral hops, no resin. Quite dry, only a little of everything. Nice fine bubbled mouthfeel. Not bad.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Its easy to undersell a beer like this, because its not an IPA or a bold Stout. What it is is an incredibly nice malty Amber with sweet caramel fading even into light milk chocolate while finishing mildly bitter with good citrus notes. Its actually just a fucking good beer that would be elite even in America.

Bottle 330ml @ Ngne
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, funk and some tartness. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long caramel and funky finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Draught at Keyaki. Classic amber profile, caramel malt, piney hops, notes of grape and pepper, dry bitter finish. Good stuff, fairly straight-forward and drinkable.

Bottle bought in Japan (online shop). Pours a clear amber. Aroma has biscuit and bread, and a slight roastiness. Taste has loats of roastiness, in the finish hop bitterness coming through. Nice and complex, i really liked this one.
