Looks like an American Red Ale. Very nice hue of red. Smells like an average ale. Nothing too catchy on the hints of the hops but very lightly used. Good carmel malty flavors. It tastes fairly well, surprisingly good. Nice and smooth in texture. Overall a good cold one satisfies.

Best Japanese "non-Lager/non-Pale" ale I've had thus far. Just enough malt, just enough flavor

Pours an amber color with a modest head. Although it does not retain particularly well, there is some light lacing.
The aroma is relatively simple. It consists of some caramel malt sweetness and toasted grain.
Medium bodied and smooth in the mouthfeel. There is a lightly sweet, even creamy, subtle coating of caramel that stands out at first. Later, there is an increased brown breadquality with some light hops spice. The finish becomes increasingly dry and with a dry tea leaf feel.
Overall, this one is fairly easy to drink. Although not particularly complex or memorable, I'm glad I was able to try "craft" beer from Japan.

Pours brown with a red hue and an one-inch head that lasts just a few seconds. Aroma is of caramel-like malts and a slight smokiness. The taste is very similar and very balanced. Very mild carbonation and a light body. Very drinkable if somewhat forgettable.

Pours a hazy brownish red in color.Smells like a Tootsie roll ( sugar that's just starting to caramelized but not all they way reduced ). Taste is very similar with lightly toasted malt notes that give the beer structure and Bosc Pear present on the mid and finish.

A: The beer is hazy reddish amber in color. It poured with a short light beige head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of caramel and toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of caramel and toasted malts along with a light amount of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: For a Japanese craft beer, this amber ale is quite tasty and has a pleasant mouthfeel.

Bought a 330ml bottle from one of our local Asian grocery stores and poured into a glass.

Pours with a decent amount of cream colored head. The head dissipates relatively quickly, but leaves a cap of foam that remained the entire time I drank this.
Dark caramel colored, like honey or whiskey, with a slight haze.
Lots of bubbles rising up the glass.

Smells like toasted malt, with a hint of apricot.

A bit sweet. Lots of toasty malt flavor. Not much hop presence in the flavor or aroma. I'm getting a hint of pear.

Medium to heavy body with nice carbonation

I'm glad I picked this up. It's a really nice amber/brown ale.
