COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Nipponia is brewed using two Japanese original materials; "Kaneko Golden," the Japanese ancient barley, and "Sorachi Ace," the hop which once was bred in Japan. Please enjoy the citrus flavor, the golden color and the complex taste.

Important!: This is the original top-fermented version. From summer 2011, Nipponia has been bottom fermented. See that entry.

deadguy (42) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Pours hazy rich golden with little head. Sweet, piney, sour and citrusy notes. Sharp hoppy flavor gives way to subtle notes of licorice and earthy overtones with an exceptionally clean finish. Very refreshing.

Jimthechap (1820) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 22, 2015
The appearance of Euro-pils and then the dusty, grainy aroma that walks hand in hand with it. The flavour may seem a little richer on the grain but there is no additional contribution of interesting fruit or herbal notes. A but dusty on the palate and similarly unrewarding. Japanese Eurolager. Who’d’ve thunk it.

550ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Fair white head to a hazy, golden coloured body. Fragile lacing. Mild smoked bacon on the nose joined by fruits. Flavoured with spiced fruits laced with a touch of honey sweetness. Smoked malts beneath. Fine bodied. Different and nice, like it (shared with Finn and his neighbours, Tromsø 04.11.2014)

Bottle. Golden light hazy. Creamy malts, bit of cardboard, lemony citrus, some earthy herbalness (guess what some call dillish). Soft full body. Creamy malts, some honey. Ok beer, leaves a slight sweet cloying finish.
