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.

Marduk (6876) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Slightly hazy golden color. Medium size, fluffy white head, stays. Sweet, straw, alcohol? sourish in aroma. Sourish, grainy, malty, papery, sweet in taste. Mild apples and sake feeling in aftertaste. Perfumey mouthfeel. Drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

jaghana (5770) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper beer with huge white head. Nose is on grain, almond and sweet sake, light floral / violette notes. Aroma is on grain, less sweet, vegetables and almond notes, hazelnut touch, sour and rancid background. Strange but quite complex for the alcohol level.

suurjuust (3228) - ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2015
Hazy yellow amber pour, medium white head with thin retention. Nose is malt, floral notes and boiled vegetables, some sweetness. Flavor is vegetal, malts, vague caramel, some muted hops in the finish. Nice and smooth mouthfeel, but the vegetal notes are not for me.

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange pour with a white head that dissipated relatively quickly. Citrus, grass, fruits. Aroma is really refreshing. Body is light, almost watery. Easy to drink, especially after a very hot and humid day. Refreshing citrus finish. Very good Japanese summer beer that goes well with most Japanese food

Westkyoto77 (628) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2014
Draught at the brewpub, Fushimi. Murky dark gold with short-lived white head. Yeasty, musty nose. Light body, fairly high carbonation. Muted flavours of stone fruit, light malt. Ok, but didn't deliver the richness the name hints at.
