Japan

Tokyo craft pale aleThis beer is the first one to be reviewed here following last month’s Japan tour. The fragrances are flowery fruity and by looks it is a bright yellow beer which shows rather great degrees of carbonation. More nutty fruit-like with a hint of pears, underlying notes at least. So; what does it taste?  The land of the sun here brings us a fresh crisp pale ale with definite traces of pear and chestnut, boosted with the hefty carbonation. A great representative for Japan’s passion to the art of brewing, this one. It also maintains a quite heavy malty power throughout  the whole mouth feel, leaving a subtle caramelish postludium.  Another reason to love this exiting country!
