Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber with a fine, one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malt, lemony yuzu, green pepper and ginger (although there is no ginger used). Flavor is neutral malt, yuzu, green and hot pepper, black pepper. Lemony, peppery finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess and sharp carbonation. This combination of yuzu and pepper seems like it would be a little over-the-top, but this has a delightful, spicy flavor that stays interesting throughout the glass. Yuzu has a bright lemony flavor and the Sahsho pepper combines both lemon citrus and black pepper characteristics. There are green pepper and unknown citrus notes too. The malt is light, but supports these robust flavors. This smelled so spicy when pouring (I got the noted ginger-like aromas) that I was not sure what to expect. My first taste was great and it stayed interesting. This packs a lot of flavor into its modest ABV. Interesting and refreshing.

Brewed with Japanese yuzu and sansho spices. On tap at the Shinagawa Station eCuute location. An absolutely lovely pale ale that packs tons of flavor. Easily sessionable as the spices and citrus just don't get tiresome.
