This is the last (for the moment) of the Usami Brewery series:
Usami Brewery “Rhein” (German Type)
Ingredients: Grain Malt, Hops
Live yeast, unfiltered, unpasteurized.
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Dark brown, neat colour
Foam: Long head, fine bubbles
Aroma: Dry, caramel, Welcome acidity
Taste: Well-rounded. Refreshing. Solid. Complex.
Apples, oranges, light caramel. A little acidity. Sweetish finish.
Lingers in back of the mouth
Overall: Sweetish for a Japanese palate, just right for a European/North American one.
Lighter than expected. Wel-rounded as for taste.
Very satisfying with food.
