Hitachino Nest, Classic Ale, Kiuchi Brewery, Naka, Japan
This is lovely and is the beer equivalent of angels rubbing moisturiser into your feet with a silk cloth. Much preferred to the Red Rice Ale. This copper brown beer has all the body, texture and depth of some of the best ‘new wave’ (read multi-hopped) micro brewery beers, but without any overt hops. The flavour is of malted barley, marginal sweetness, a touch of spice though not spicy, notes of fuggles and golding hops, packaged in a balanced classic British ale style. Very refined with a long finish. 8.5/10
