look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a two-finger beige head that diminishes somewhat quickly; a thin film lingers. Clear, copper body. Sweet caramel is readily apparent in the aroma; subtle orange, pineapple. Flavor is largely characterized by hop bitterness with a grassy quality; some grapefruit; malt appears late and leaves a bread-like aftertaste accompanied by a lingering metallic bitterness. Medium body with restrained, somewhat crisp carbonation.

All-around unappealing—hop aroma largely missing from the aroma, and hop flavor is grassy with a grapefruit-like bitterness. Caramel malt quality comes through in the aroma but appears only as an afterthought in the taste. The bitter, metallic finish just deepens the disappointment.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and biscuit-like aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of watery malt flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that has a decent smell but the flavors are pretty lacking.

Can bougnt in Japan, poured into a goblet.

A: Very dark red, almost red. Basically no head.

S: Wow, strong aromas of dark fruit, peach, citrus, maple, and apple.

T: mhhm... dark fruits, citrus and hops start it off, sweet malts and dark fruits in the middle and finish.

M: Light and carbonated.

O: Suprisingly good, the dark fruits really stand out in this one!

350ml can poured into a little hotel tumbler

Pours clear coppery brown with a small pale head. Little or no active carbonation that I can see. Color is nice. Smell is almost nonexistent, just a little soap.

Taste is a little soap, and some bland sweetness. Some slight caramel. Overall, unfortunately watery.

Mouthfeel is thinnish and dry. Overall...not such a great beer. Not a repeat buy.
