L: pours a dark gold/copper with a small fizzy white head.
S: biscuity malt, sweet, caramel and hints of citrus.
T: caramelly malt taste, some touches of citrus, grapefruit, a little pine.
F: really smooth, solid malty body, some tang, and a nice moderate bitter finish.
O: I’ve had this probably more than anything other beer, ever, so it is my palate’s standard reference point. It’s a standard, well-rounded, delicious ale for all seasons. ALLOVATE (3048) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2015
A very attractive ale indeed. Satin sheened, hazy deep amber with fine, intermittent carbonation eddying up to an inch of whipped up white foam. Fruity nose hinting at lychee, mango and passionfruit with a spicy, raw hop edge. Palate is a continuation of that wonderful aroma. All fruit with a tang of lychee and passionfruit atop a honey malt base. Quite light on the tongue with soft carbonation and a softer, clean and short finish. Bitterness of under-ripe fruit. Quite juicy and sumptuous. Incredibly sessionable. Hit the mark. Lovely! (35cL can, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot) Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2015

Drank from a can. A very nice beer! The taste is soft and fruity. It’s quite gentle, making it suitable for relaxing after a sauna or an onsen.

Shows golden honey comb with moderate filtration and a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows just a faint hint of sweet malts. Not a lot of aroma even upon warming up.
The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated showing a hint of sweet malts but mostly moderately intense flavors of tart apricot and some pineapple. Overall, this is not bad. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
