At Baird Beer we mark the transition to each new year with the release of a special “First-Brewed” commemorative beer in celebration of the fresh possibilities represented by the turning of the calendar. Hatsujozo 2011 is what you might consider an Imperial Pale Lager. Brewed with a similar grist to our Suruga Bay Imperial IPA, Hatsujozo 2011 is different in that it is fermented with our Numazu Lager yeast. Also different is the hop regime, which is packed with European aroma varieties including Saaz, Tettnanger, Tradition and Hersbrucker. The result is a gloriously hoppy and strong pale lager which enjoys a perfectly balanced complexity of flavor.

On tap at Harajuku Taproom. Hazy golden colour, medium head. Citrussy hop aroma and flavours, well-balanced malty sweetness and potent hop bitterness. Delicious.

Draught at Bashamichi. Big fresh hops, citrus, with light pilsner malt in the aroma. Clear gold color with a nice bubbly head. Malty, crackery flavor with nice hops. Very grassy with a bit of citrus. Well done big pils.

Golden amber light color. Apples and oranges with a very pilsner like nose. Light body, very fragerant, lots of hops. Very much like iipa, but decent well balanced.
