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. douglas88 (9632) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2017
On tap at Popeye’s. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A nice soft fruity nose, caramel. Smooth toast, caramel, light citrus. Very clean. larsga (7657) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2007
Almost no head, just thin white film. Hazy amber body. Citric tropical fruit hop aroma with sweetish notes. Taste is deep, firm sweet tropical fruit and resiny hops. Dry, oily hop aftertaste. Excellent. (0.25l on tap.) KansaiBeerLvrs (5378) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Bottle from the brewery via Rakuten. It poured a nice rich red color with a light head. It was a little hoppy amber ale. Very tasty! beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2014
A flavourfull and balanced brew that would make a nice complement to any tasting session.

Draught at Beer Belly, Osaka. Reddish-brown. Mid-palate and aftertaste a bit thin and short. But overall, good balance and aroma. Hoppy for an amber.
