Handpump at Craft Beer Kamikaze, Osaka.
Copper-amber color, good creamy off-white head. Aroma is woody hoppy, exotic hoppy. Light to medium-bodied, soft palate. Exotic fruity, piney-woody. Soft bitterness, decent malt base. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Smells of hops and a citrus fruit smell to this beer. Cloudy orange amber with a very active head, this was in the can. Its flavor is a fruity malt nut grain flavor. Lots of body to this beer. Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2014
Can from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department. If I understand this correctly its BB was due in June which explains the € 1,60 price tag. I guess I did buy it on the last day of June. Pours a deep, clear amber with a big off white head not retaining very well. Nose is a strong malty backbone with light, honey sweetness. A bit like roasted corn(or oat)flakes coated with honey. Malt is also most apparent in taste, with a peachy sweet and earthy hoppy, bitterish background. Light body with a rather crisp carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Overall? At least I’ve really tried to like this. Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Can from Taps, Kl. Smashed back at the Mandarin Oriental. It pours clear amber with decent white head. The nose is sweet tropical fruits, lychee, star fruit, cucumber and toasty grain. The taste is crisp, bitter, tangerine, light sherbet, decent malt backbone, toast, hay, lychee and grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice lychee action. Rather enjoyable stuff. beersighted (134) - - JUN 9, 2014
What a great English-style ale. Malty and sweet initially, but quickly fades into a smooth, silky finish. Pleasantly surprised by this one!

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 The Real Ale Version is now in a 330ml can, I suspect it’s brewed and canned in Japan(not the UK) but this can does have a widget capsule in it. 5.5% Great looking nitro pour, creamy head that lingers with a nice sweet fruity citrus aroma - quite hoppy. The creamy smooth mouthfeel I associate with real ale, the taste is fruity citrus, some caramel and a nice bitting bitter finish. Tasty, good as an everyday chilling out kind of beer.JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014

5.5% Regular Yona Yona can. A solid hoppy ale at a good price. A very nice orange-gold color with a nice head of foam and good lacing on the glass. Average, it’s pretty amazing the difference that real ale nitro cap makes.
Can found in Hasegawa Liquors. Poured a slightly flat looking golden amber with a small white head. Decent malt character, some hints of toastiness in there. Moderately bitter hop with a pleasant fruity tang. There is something slightly unusual I can’t quite place, but it is nice enough without being amazing. Better malts than many an APA. daniele (9063) - ITALY - MAY 25, 2014

Kveldens andre japanske boksøl på Mandag i annen denne nydelige maikvelden: nydelig aroma og flott utseende, enda et bevis på at boks også er en fornuftig emballasje for øl. Mye aroma men forsiktig bitterhet, her har de vært generøse med aromahumlen. Litt karamellsødme, men uten den humlefriske bitterheten jeg forbinder med en god am. pale ale. Kort ettersmak. Konsumeringslett. melush (4065) - SPAIN - MAY 16, 2014
