Kyotos first local beer in 1995. It has a good aroma, and is crisp and rich. We have used our own Fushimi water, and Seishu sake yeast for a slight sake-like aroma in this mellow, pale-gold beer.

omhper (21894) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale yellow, brief head. Fruity/ricey nose. Sweetish with plenty of green apples and rice. Well rounded light body and a tingle of alcohol. While the rice may be quite nice the green apples are not.

KyotoLefty (8138) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow color. Thin, light flavor of sake yeast, with a light fruitiness, mostly green apples. Dry finish from sake yeast. Light and slightly fruity, a bit of interest from the sake yeast, but not much to offer.

Capa (2426) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Weak gold with a bright white head. Intensely floral aroma, yeast, I do pick up some sake similar notes, also. Sweet malts and fruit finish the aroma. Very interesting, unlike any pale lager I’ve had. Thin body. Sweet, lightly sour, spicy, and malts. Any hops are overpowered by the malt and yeast profile. A very interesting brew. Unfortunately it is on par with other Kizakura brews- well made, but not something I’d go out of my way to find.
