KAGUYA FUJI BREWERY (FUJI CITY) ENGLISH INDIAN PALE ALE!
KAGUYA FUJI BREWERY :
Kaguya Fuji Brewery is located inside Fujis Park Hotel in Fuji City which belongs to the Fuji Branch of Toki No Sumika Company.
One can arrange a visit of its American concept brewery and apparently interview its brew master.
I found this particular can in Cenova Department Store in Shizuoka City.
It is an English Indian Pale Ale nicknamed “Fugaku Bokusha/Mount Fuji Beer”!
Imported barley and barley malts.
Clarity: Slightly smoky
Color: Dark amber
Bubbles: Short head. Fine and light bubbles
Aroma: Light and dry. Bread, faint oranges.
Tasting: Pleasant, light and fruity attack.
Bread, dry oranges, light malts.
Lingers for a while on the palate with a lasting refreshing impression. Dry oranges will stay long but pleasantly.
Changes little with food but for more depth and a little more acidity.
Comments: Surprisingly quite deep and refreshing. More complex than expected although light enough to be enjoyed at any pace, chilled or cool. Not overwhelming but enticing you to the next sip.
A craft beer for all seasons that all genders and ages will enjoy.
Recommended pairings: Cheeses, cured meats, BBQ, karaage fried chicken, light sausages, potato salad, salted nuts.
