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.

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.

chimayx (116) - FRANCE - MAY 2, 2017
Cette bière, froide, commence tristement avec de faibles arômes, proche d’une lager, voir d’une pale lager. C’est assez sec, un peu de malt, de miel, assez aqueux. Mais il faut savoir prendre son mal en patience: elle est en réalité faite pour être bue tiède. Au fur et à mesure de l’élévation de température, les arômes de saké se libèrent progressivement, puis intensivement. Au final, nous avons donc une bière qui présente un lager fond malté, mais sur le devant de fortes notes de saké, ces notes chaudes et rondes assez typiques. Original, a défaut d’être franchement intéressant

Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2017
Can at the lodging in Kyoto - picked up at 7-Eleven. Pours clear gold, effervescent, with a creamy white head. The nose has some white bread, a little honey, dough. Light-medium sweet flavour with notes of pae grains, simple white bread, low bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more sweet, pae bread, some grainy accents, white sugar. Very, very basic.
