Scipio's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Scipio (869) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Thanks again to Chris for this one. Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden with a short lived white head. Fruity aroma has pineapple, orange, pear, and melon. The taste contains much of the impressions given by the aroma. However, there is a bitter grainy taste that is quite potent in here as well. It begins fruity, and than gradually is replaced with the graininess that extends into the aftertaste. More light in body with a slick texture. Kind of refreshing actually. Pretty good. Much better than your standard Japanese beer.

Can from supermarket in Chiba. Piney, resinous aroma, a little sweet. Drinkable, but not particularly memorable.

Zilb (223) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 20, 2016
Cannette. Bire blonde trs fonce, limite ambre. Beau col de mousse bonne tenue et trs forte carbo. Arme lger dagrumes et de malt. Surpris car belle rondeur en bouche, et on sent lalcool qui est pourtant de 5,5% ! Final sur le malt, lalcool et une pointe dagrume. Vraiment pas mal.

Can, Lawson. Osaka, Japan. Pours medium orange amber with a medium white foam subsiding average slow. Scent is light almond and resin notes, clear peanut notes - almost peanut butter. And notes of macha. Taste is medium amber ale with flavors of vanilla and resin. Very interesting beer. Great.

35 cl can. Light amber color, clear, nice stable offwhite head. Light smell of pale ale. Light malty aroma, a little caramelized, nice american style hopping, may be dry hopping, moderately biting. Taste is balanced, lightly bitter. A decent pale ale, above the average, refreshing.
