Slightly hazy, amber, medium head. Aroma shows some pedio, light English yeast. Sweet, amber malts, a touch biscuity, the pedio isn’t showing through much. biirusaikou (2705) - - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Quite caramel-forward with some grassy hops, feels a bit more British, not horrible but fairly boring. Probably at the top-end of the omiyage beer range but that is still fairly uninspiring... Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Amber pour with a thick white head. Grape, banana, tropical fruit, bread, perfume. Light and silky body with nice and balanced carbonation.

Bottle. Thanks to Bart. Fresh, grassy aromas with some diacetyl notes. Golden yellow color. Mild maltiness, finish is a touch sweet. Medium body. Not bad at all.... but doesn’t really stand out in any way. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at home bought at Hanadaya. Golden amber coloured, slightly hazy with small beige head. Aroma is fruity, citrus and grassy hops, and also a bit sweet. Taste is fruity but without as much sweetness. End is lemony bitter, but not forcefully so. Quite subtle and pretty nice. Not bad at all.

Tap. Soft caramel and skunk nose. Soft and delicate. Nice low bitter finish. Very drinkable, if a tad nonchalant. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Mild Grapefruit and floral aroma. Golden-copper with off-white head. Cascade hops, fruit and mild lemon Flavor. Balanced with Medium Bitterness. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2010
Bottle from the brewery, 5.5% ABV. Hazy amber, medium white head. Good fruity toffee, both in the mouth and in the nose. Good balance between toffee and fruity hop bitterness. KyotoLefty (10931) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Medium copper color. Flowery, slightly perfumey aroma, with citrus, hops, fruits. Hoppy, fruity, light flavor. Slightly alcoholic!; with honey. Popcicle like. Ok. It might be good if it weren’t so cold. Rather bland, though. IslandHaole (1302) - Misawa, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2007
Deep golden color, eggshell white head, nice hoppy taste and again, a nice feel, rather creamy. Well done! I could drink way too much of this!
