Three separate malts including one French pale malt shore up this clean, citrusy American-style Pale Ale. Apart from the malts, our namesake beer includes a secret combination of bitter hops including Cascade and locally-grown, ancient-style black rice to create something uniquely Japanese in character but easily drunk by all.

35cl can from some shop in Yokohama. Pours deep golden with the modest white head. Mild hoppy aroma with fruity notes and hints of citrus and pale malt. Moderate to medium sweet with mild flavours and a light, but fairly pleasant bitterness. Nothing to special, but easy to drink and fairly enjoyable.

caramel, herbs, floral, golden, hazy, light sweetness, medium body, lively. Very flowery, citrusy, and aromatic, like one of those potpourris that’s done so well you want to taste it. Deep golden. Slightly sweet, a tad sparkling, quick bitter finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Somewhat filling for a medium-bodied beer.

mrjez (407) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 5, 2016
Can from local Daiei. Pours clear deep gold with big foamy white head. Mostly malt-forward aroma, cardboard, caramel, light floral hopping. Light sweetness on the palate from the malts, gentle fruit touches, citrus and melon perhaps. Nice lively feel, low lingering bitterness, slightly oily residue. More of an English PA, a tamer Yona Yona. Okay.

willisread (2211) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2016
Can from Natural Lawson. Drank from the can. Very perfume-like aromatic hops with some herbal elements and light orange. Average carbonation with some crackery malts and bit of caramel. Dry, pithy finish with light pepper. Better than expected.

courtesy of Thomas Krüsi; canned - very hazy reddish-orange beer with a little foam left; aroma of tea and melon, perfumy and very aromatic; velvety palate, medium-bodied, assertive and fairly bitter; decently dry and long finish of tea and watermelon - charming and with lot of character

Pours clear golden amber. Bit of head. Aroma is quite simple. Bit of fruity hops, feels sweetish. Taste is also fruit side of a pale ale, really juicy actually. Light and easygoing fulfilling pale ale. I wonder where the fruits are coming from or is this really from rice. Nice.

Westkyoto77 (616) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle, pretty old. Poured dark orange. Fruity and hoppy nose, some citrus and caramel. Creamy medium body. Hops and malts nicely balance to give some flavours of caramel, biscuit, some citrus. Would have again.

Can from Naiku shrine. Citrus and hop aroma,though not as much hops as a regular American pale ale. Tangy citrus flavour with mild hops. Smooth and light.
