COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented for an extended period, this premium lager features an aromatic sweetness in its amber tones. With the combination of high quality malts, roasted sweet potatoes and beer craftmanship, this beer is unique to the Bushu area, featuring Kawagoe’s famous produce, Kintoki sweet potatoes. Take the time to full enjoy its flavors and the slightly elevated alcohol content. Called "Beniaka" Meaning Crimson Red, in honor of the colors of the sweet potatoes which helped produce it. Ingredients: Malt, Hops, Barley and Sweet Potato

Pours a dark brown red. Below normal head volume with little retention or lacing. The nose is rather nice, sweet potato, molasses, light caramel and maybe other vegetables or fruit. Light body with a texture a bit heavier than water. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish. The flavor is unique, but not bad if you like sweet potatoes. Sweet potato becomes the base with a bit of hop bitterness arriving in the middle. As it progresses, the sweetness takes on a molasses note with a hint of caramel.

martjoobolut (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, bitter, caramel, alcohol, and malt. Overall: ok, a bit too boozy.

suurjuust (1882) - ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2015
Reddish-brown beer, small beige head. Nose is sweet, raisins, bready and malty caramel. Flavor is malt, some bread, caramel, more raisins, slighty vegetal. Finishes with more booze than I expected and sweet potato notes. A bit weird.

mrjez (89) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 19, 2015
L: pours a lovely dark reddish copper, with a quickly dissipating head. S: some mild scents, a little sweet potato, malt, sweetened caramel, a bit like raisin chocolate. T: quite boozy but nice, definite caramel, the sweet potato is coming through more, quite earthy. Lower down the taste of brown sugar really takes over. F: a touch of alcohol burn at the backend, a bit of spritz up front. O: it’s good, the most complex of Coedo’s regular line-up. Would have again.

mkel07 (4352) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2015
On tap at Watermans Beer Market 170515. I must say that I didn’t detect much sweet potato in the flavour or the aroma. Deep amber colour with plenty of maltiness.

코에도 브루어리 - 베니아카 7% ABV 임페리얼 스윗 포테이토 엠버라는 거창한 부제를 붙인 맥주. 베니아카는 진홍색이란 뜻이라고 한다. 짙은 갈색의 맑은 텍스트, 로스팅된 고구마가 향이 살짝도는 엠버라거.
