This is my third tasting of the beer from this micro-brewery lost in the east of the prefecture at the foot of Mount Fuji:

Izu Ale

This particular beer is an organic beer using wheat malt.
It is unfiltered and should be kept in a cold environment because of its live yeast.

Clarity: slightly smoky (unfiltered)
Colour: golden orange
Foam: Long head, fine steady bubbles
Aroma: Oranges,yeast, bread
Taste: Dry and heady. Oranges, bread. Shortish tail. Refreshing and satisfying.

Overall: British Ale type. True Ale. My British particularly appreciated it. Can be savoured on its own or with food.
