Since we are in the middle of an extraordinarily hot summer, it is about time we delve in the local beers! And there are more than you might think! Considering the abundance of great water in Shizuoka Prefecture, we should wonder why we are not afloat lakes of beers put out by local breweries!
The first of a (hopefuly) long series shall start with a brew by Tenjingura Brewery in Hamamtsu City:
Name: Tenjingura Beer-Weizen
Yeast: German Weizen yeast
Ingredients: More than 50% Wheat malt
Volume: 330 ml
Colour: Nice darkish amber
Foam: fine and disappearing quickly
Aroma: Bread, yeast
Body: Velvety on the palate
Taste: Fruity, Yeasty, bread
Comments: Both refreshing and nourishing. Almsot sweet with very little acidity. A beer for all seasons.
