Excellent. Dark and creamy. Deceptively strong.

Malty, carbonated and inoffensive.

Always regret not letting this one fully warm up. Excellent as always.

Not sure if it's the fact that this is the first truly good beer I've had in Japan but it tastes excellent, nice and fresh, good carbonation

Not much to write home about.

Kizakura Co. by Kyoto Bakusyu Gold Ale (京都麦酒ゴールドエール)

Kyle B. is drinking a Kyoto Bakusyu Gold Ale (京都麦酒ゴールドエール) by Kizakura Co.

Made using sake yeast, which doesn't really add much. Tastes mediocre, a simple beer that doesn't really live up to its billing as craft.

Miyajima Beer by Pale Ale

Kyle B. is drinking a Pale Ale by Miyajima Beer

Nice balance between hops and drinkability. My first craft beer in Japan. Better than the usual domestic Lagers.

Going with that English and dry hop character. Very drinkable, lager-like. Worth a growler.

Kings County Brewers Collective by Full Contact - Raspberry

This is crushable, as they say. Barrel aging really smooths out the rough edges. Not an overpowering raspberry flavor either.

Kings County Brewers Collective by Taco Wednesday

Nice, would've liked it a bit more crisp. Has more in common with a clean ale ferment.

Cerveza Loba S.A. De C.V. by Loba Alfa

Kyle B. is drinking a Loba Alfa by Cerveza Loba S.A. De C.V. at Guadalajara

First decent beer I've had in Mexico that hasn't been mistreated or "quemada". Tastes beautiful. Nice aroma, bitter and puckering finish.

Steinbock Cervecerías by Stout

This one has a yeasty note and a bit of a sour finish.
