12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. It pours a medium reddish copper with a rocky, persistent light tan head. The smell is almost chocolate, rather biscuity, and with a slight cherry note. This is smelling good. The taste is very malt dominant, with caramel and a slightly woody finish. This is a really easy drinking beer, a very nice balance with a very slight hops finish that balances the malt well. Mouthfeel is soft, with a nice medium carbonation. Overall this is a great beer, a fantastic balance of flavors and a great variety of flavors going on in a package that isn't too challenging. This is a great "transition" beer to get your crap beer drinking friends migrated over to good beer. And this is a good beer.

Bought this from the Joyful Honda supermarket section in Tokyo. It is a nice, bronze brew with lots of roasted notes and a smooth, refreshing finish. I would recommend a try, but it is not in my "must-have" alt category.
