Japanese Classic Ale

Brewer: Kiuchi Brewery

Location: Naka, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan

Interesting Fact: The beer is matured in cedar casks.

Alcohol Percentage:  7%

IBU:  13

Survey says: This Japanese beer had a cloudy amber color and a huge head.  There was a pleasant yeasty beer aroma. The brew was very refreshing with a nice citrus, fruity flavor. With an IBU of 13 it obviously had some hops flavor but there was just enough bitterness to give the sweetness some bite. It was a good sharp flavor without being too bitter. All in all this was a good pale ale and quite enjoyable.
