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.

maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from local Yamaya. Yeasty, fruity aroma, with light lemon and apples. Light pale straw color, 2-3cm head. Very thin distressed winey initial; mid palaate brings some bitterness; final flattens out quickly. Thin body. Interesting aroma... but the first sip disappoints and it gets no better.
