Kirinokura Brewery - Hyuganatsu 330mL brown bottle. Bottled 2009.06.12, best before 2009.08.12 according to the label.

I was looking forward to a sweet, honey-flavoured citrus-infused lager, but unfortunately this bottle, even though it's fresh from the brewery, is tainted. Not with bacteria, however - the pervasive flavour is none other than sodium metabisulfite (wash fermenters once or twice and you'll never forget this smell).

Not sure why - maybe the bottles were hand-washed, and rinsed poorly. This beer is filtered, and apart from the acrid alkali attack on the sinuses, it would otherwise be potable. Hyuganatsu is vaguely detectable, but that's the last sip I'm going to have, this is going down the drain (at least it's good for something)!

This was simply a bad bottle - when I next see a bottle of Hyuganatsu I'll give it a second review to be fair. Next, onto the 'Kirinokura Brewery Golden' - I hope the cleaning problems haven't been passed on to all their brews!
