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.

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, Troms 04.11.2014)
