Details

The unique Hitachino Nest beers are brewed in Japan so it is no surprise that traditional sake brewing methods are used on occasion. The Japanese Classic Ale IPA is aged in cedar casks, which are commonly used in sake brewing whilst traditional British hops add an elegant spicy note.

This IPA has been bottle-conditioned so the complex aromas of spice, wood, caramel and sweet apples have matured nicely. The taste is similar to the aroma with an additional rich sweetness. Firmly bitter with a creamy mouthfeel and carbonation, it’s easy to love this charming Japanese beer.
