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.

pilgrimoutlaw (791) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours opaque gold with foamy white head, that dissipates fairly quickly. Basement, citrus, caramel, biscuit. Moderately sweet and bitter. Full bodied, a little crisp with smooth undertones. Ok.

Flaske 550ml delt med Rune og naboen på Nerstranda 4 Nov 11. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Lavt skum. Aroma av røyk & bacon. Smaken er orientalske krydder & frukt. God & anderledes.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2014
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)

jookos (2530) - FINLAND - AUG 21, 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.

bartlebier (1880) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
55cl bottle (bb06/2015 - entry as bottom/top fermented?) shared by jaghana@TriState Tasting II. Pours greenish golden, with substance. Complex composition of vanilla cream, butterscotch, canned gooseberry, sweet white wine in the aroma; whisky malts, even a whisp of smoke and spicy/ginger liqueur notes to complement the taste. Palate is both finely textured, oaky and well-carbed. Fascinating exotic sipper at a bearably low abv.

bastarda (102) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2014
shared @ 2nd D/CH/F TriStateRating, courtesy of jaghana, thank you! A very special nose, vanilla, coconut, coconut-oil, then traces of pineapples and cream, taste as aroma, with alcohol well hidden, subtle sweet- and bitterness. A wonderful beer.
