COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anbai literally means “Salty Plum” and the word is also used to describe the stat of taste and flavor. Ii Anbai means “just right”!

Hitachino Nest Anbai Ale is brewed based on the high alcohol version (7%) of the siganture beer Hitachino Nest White Ale, infused with locally grown green sour plum (ume), and finished up with a pinch of Japanese sea salt (moshio). The balance of sourness, bitterness, comes from the plum and subtle saltiness, great umami taste of the sea salt is “Ii Anbai - just right!”

humpah (399) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Bottle from Alko shared. Pours golden color. Flavor of saltiness, malts, sweetness, slight tartness, plum especially in the taste as well as the umami feeling, bitterness. Medium body, salty aftertaste. Unorthodox beer, nothing like I’ve had before, umami is more present than in anything I’ve had either. Strange even. Not bad at all though, nice beer.

carlom (124) - ITALY - JAN 20, 2018
Colore giallo oro, schiuma media poco persistente. Aromi di mela e prugna. Al palato sentori fruttati di di pompelmo, mela e prugna. Gusto mediamente dolce, media carbonazione. Una birra in cui l'alcol è ben nascosto ma dove i sentori fruttati sono abbastanza contenuti.

Bottle - the pour on this is a mostly clear rich golden color (similar to apple juice) with a thin white head. The aroma is simple but malty, fruity and a hint of sour. Interesting flavor with sweet fruit and sour fruit notes, bready malt and a hint of salt.
