Japan Hitachino Nest Classic IPA 45cl
The aroma is strong from the cedar casks in which this was matured in, and then very faint notes of caramel malt. Dark cloudy amber colour with a firm and lasting thumb thick white head. Smooth caramel malt in the fore is quickly followed by spicy cedar notes that affect both sweeter Italian vanillin flavours as well as medium spiciness. The wood flavour is sharp and pervasive and adds an element not found in many other beer. There is a fair amount of hoppiness, but it melds together with the cider notes as they both touch on resiny and piney flavours. Again the cedar seems to impart a spicy quality that floats above the hoppiness of the beer rather than compete with it, rather than obliterating the quality of the beer underneath, it enhances the hoppiness. Clean, smooth and very easy to drink.
Strength: 7.5% ABV
