3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Faucets. Amber coloured, slightly murky. Aroma is very grainy, light sweetness, all malty. Taste is very dry, grainy, hint of fruit at the back, citrus maybe, but totally grain dominated. Light bitterness. Later on softens a bit, but grain becomes a bit spicy and a bit more fruit comes through. Really interesting as Zakko always are.
Keyaki backlog. More of a pale ale maybe, starts ok with floral notes and a Belgian edge, hop bitterness and spicy edge kind of clash though and finish is a bit harsh. Not their best.
