Aoi Brewing has decided to alter their ALT and the first batch in already served on tap!

Served on tap
Barley, Maris Otter malt Great Britain), Crystal malt (USA), Munich malt (Germany), Chocolate malt (USA), Australian galaxy Hop (Australia), Sylva hop (Australia), Select hop (Belgium), Nottingham Pale Ale Yeast, sugars
Natural carbonation
IBU: 35
Production: 450 l

Bubbles: Long head. Very fine bubbles. Cremy. Light brown
Color: dark orange.
Aroma: Deep and dry. Bread, biscuits, ginger bread, dry honey.
Taste: smooth and deep attack. Creamy. Complex.
Bread, ginger bread, oranges.
Excellent blend of malt, yeast and alcohol.
Lingers long enough on palate for true tasting before departing on drier notes of oranges.

Overall: my good friend, Kent Rhoads, a very difficult to please beer criti, assured me this was the best brown ale he ever tasted in Japan!
Not over rich, well-rounded, complex and exciting.
A craft beer that you can both savor and quaff in all seasons!
