Bottled on March 18th, 2015

Clarity: very clear
Color: almost transparent

Complex: coffee beans, dark chocolate, nuts, custard.
Lingers for a while before departing on a softer note with late appearance of dry chestnuts.

Overall: far better than expected for a simple honjozo!
Although tasted chilled, would do well at any temperature.
The kind of sake that would please any one any time especially around a BBQ or a hot pot.
Suggested pairings: stew, yakitori, spicy food, cheese.
A sake for all seasons!

Irish Pub: Beer House Tirnan-Og In Hamamatsu City by Guest Blogger Matthew Davis!

TIRNAN-OG-13

Tirnan-Og is the Hamamatsu outlet for the now famous Baird Beer. A 10-minute walk from JR Hamamatsu Station, between the Daiichi-Dori Station (Enshu Railway Line) and the lively Sakana-machi area of downtown Hamamatsu.

TIRNAN-OG-8

Tirnan-Og currently carries all 12 of the Year-Round Beers and seasonal selections.
I have been lucky enough to live in Hamamatsu for 1.5 years and I have tried all 12 of the Year-Round Beers and now focus my visits around the seasonal beers.

TIRNAN-OG-1

The shop seems to attract a variety of clientele; ex-pats, business travelers, and dedicated locals. What I enjoy most is that there never seems to be an overly boisterous group. Although laughter and mixed conversation are always present, the atmosphere reflects the fact that people are there to enjoy the finely crafted beer, and the behavior reflects likewise.
The shop is also completely non-smoking (small smoking patio is available), there is no table charge, and payments are cash only.

TIRNAN-OG-10

The shop will hold approximately 10 people at the bar, 10-12 at small crowded tables and 3-4 more in a small corner. As you would expect weekends can be crowded so it’s always best to call ahead and check on the seating and make your reservation as necessary.
The room is lined in a light colored wood paneling and gives a very warm crafted and quite feel. The front of the shop looks out and up to the lively street above.
The tables and bar are always clean as well as the small kitchen that is visible from the bar. Single restroom for both men and women is well maintained.

Food

TIRNAN-OG-11

Although the menu has quite a few snacks I would not consider this a “dinner” spot.
I would typically eat Tandoori Chicken although on my last few visits they have been sold out.
Again with plenty to choose from so you will certainly not be disappointed if you need a quick snack.

TIRNAN-OG-12

Karaage – Hot Crispy and served with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce.
Sandwich – Two Small Sandwiches. A straight-forward Ham and Cheese, and next is a cream cheese, nut and dried fruit spread. I must say I am in love with the cream
cheese spread.
Pizza – Maghretti style pizza with a tortilla crust.

Again the food is simple, light, and prepared to order.

Beers

TIRNAN-OG-7

You will find all 12 of the Year-Round Beers available as well as the seasonal selection. There is simply no way to rank these selections, or make strong recommendations. My advice would be to start with your preferred beer style, then try something you typically don’t drink. I tend to drink more IPA and wheat beers, and shy away from porters and dark stouts. Although when I tried the Kurofune Porter and Shimaguni Stout I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how light it was, although it maintained all the flavor and richness you expect from these styles.

As for this visit I again focused on the two seasonal and ended the night with a familiar favorite.

TIRNAN-OG-2

Mikan Ale (seasonal)

Served: Draft
Unfiltered
ABV: 7% Alcohol
Clarity: smoky, with a dull yellow and orange color
Aroma: Over Ripe Musky Mikan and Citrus (Bittersweet Peel)
Taste: More hoppy than expected (I have not seen a published IBU value for Baird Beers). Mikan hints, but the bitter sweet of the peel was most noticeable. Not a sweet fruity beer at all.
Overall: Excellent Seasonal, but would not be a daily drinker.

Spiced Amber Ale (seasonal)

Unfiltered
ABV: 7% Alcohol
Clarity: smoky, with a brown and amber color
Aroma: Winter spices (Cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove)
Taste: Spot on Amber Ale with a nice helping of the Winter Spices. Less hoppy than the Mikan Ale.
Overall: Excellent Seasonal, and I was tempted to order another.

Wabi-Sabi Pale Ale (regular offering)

Filtered?
ABV: 6% Alcohol
Clarity: Golden and non-intimidating
Aroma: Lightly hopped.
Taste: I have tried to better understand the Japanese meaning of wabi-sabi and I think this beer sums it up. It is likely the most balanced beer in the Baird Beer line-up.
Overall: Daily Drinker. Can’t go wrong.

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery-Ten Teki Koshu Junmai

I have just had one more occasion of tasting a sake a bit off the tracks by Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery in Hamamatsu City!

SN3O0099

“Ten Teki”, which means “IV” in English!
It is a koshu/古酒, a sake 15-year old!

SN3O0101

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in November 2014

Clarity: very clear
Color:Golden
Aroma: very dry and fruity. Sherry, cherries
Body: fluid
Taste: sweet, deep and fruity attack.
Plums with notes of umeshu and rum.
Very elegant.
Changes little with food but for an even drier note.
Stays fruity all the time.

Overall: A sake to be drunk as a digestif with chocolate or any dessert, unless you wish to challenge a great pairing with strong cheese, both to be taken at at the end of a special repast.
If you happen to drink it as a liqueur, it will quickly disappear!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery-Kijyoushu Junmai Nama Sake

I have just had the occasion of tasting a sake a bit off the tracks by Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery in Hamamatsu City!

SN3O0095

Its name is Kijyoushu/貴醸酒, and it is done by adding already made junmai sake to the leftover moromi/mash of the same sake as opposed to an unfiltered sake! You could it is blended for further fermentation!

SN3O0097

Naturally it is a limited brew!

SN3O0098

Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in November 2014

Clarity: White and smoky, normal due to contents of white lees, but very clean
Color: white
Aroma: Sweetish and assertive. Pears
Body: Siruppy
Taste: Very strong junmai petillant backed attack. very fruity.
Complex. Pears, apples, with hints of lychees.
Lingers for a while warming up the palate before departing on a drier note.
The petillant will tone down along the way.
Turns slightly sweeter with food with a comeback of the petillant.

Overall: very interesting and elegant white lees sake.
Would definitely appeal to ladies as a white lees sake.
Reminiscent of “namazake”!
