On draft at Tired Hands.

The beer is lightly hazy and golden hued with a small, white head. The aroma brings red peppers, Asian spice, a bit of peppery heat, rice wine. Additional scents of food being prepared in a wok. This should be good, but instead it's just weird. Interesting and odd. While this is an adventurous idea, this one misses the mark. Flavors overrun one another. Chaos. Nori and beer are perhaps not meant to be united in this world, unless you're talking about eating sushi and rinising your palate with Sapporo. Pass.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Poured a cloudy golden color with a small, wispy, white head; minimal retention and lacing. Peppery spice in the nose, complimenting the crisp, citrusy aroma. Following the aroma, the taste was quite peppery, with the spices taking the dominant edge over the citrus juice and zest. There was a slight prickly sensation from the hot peppers, but the beer wasn't really spicy hot at all. There was also a yeasty presence, with notes of Ramen noodles. You heard me. Light-medium body, and quite drinkable overall, but not one of their best offerings. Points for originality though.
