Bottled 7/2014.

Pours a hazy orange-red with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, floral, fruit, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, fruit, yeast, and medicinal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that has an odd medicinal quality in the taste that makes this one a bit difficult to drink much of.

Serving type: bottle.

Hitachino Nest Red Rice has a very thick, off-white, crackly head, a hazy, red-gold appearance, and minimal lacing left on the glass. The aroma is an odd combination of smoke, strawberry juice, bread, sweetness, and boiled rice. Taste is of fairly heavy smoke (rauchbier?), some strawberry, white bread, semi-burned popcorn kernel, head shop incense, and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale finishes not so dry and highly gulp-able.
