The idea behind this unique beer is simple: flavor and refreshment. Mild in gravity and alcohol strength, Shoga Ale is built on a very simple grist bill: 2 types of base malt and Japanese dark sugar (kokuto). The hopping is restrained at 20 bittering units, but clean and brisk. Center stage is given over to our friend Shoga, whose piquant, peppery, playful performance proves winning! This is an ale not to be missed but in very short supply.

Strong ginger nose. Ginger, not well balanced, not sweet. Off dry finish. Not well made. Not worth producing again.
