Tonight I was looking for something light to drink before I’d go to sleep. That’s why I picked the only lager at home, but I might’ve been better off with some IPA.
Otaru Bakusyu Pilsner
Another beer from Hokkaido, this time their pilsner. Lager beer and thus pilsner are quite close to my heart, so I was looking forward to this one.
I ran out of beer, so I went to the nearby convenience store to pick up a few cans to last me until the weekend. I got a few Sapporo Black Labels, but don’t expect me to write about those – I don’t know beers enough to write meaningfully about mass-market brews. I didn’t intend to write about Grand Kirin either, but then…
Kohan no Mori Tenkuu
This pale lager comes from Akita, the northern tip of Honshu, the central island of the Japanese archipelago. The name of the beer means “sky, heavens”, and it’s definitely easy drinking.
I must admit that when it comes to Kyara, I’m as biased as biased one can get. It’s one of my favourite Japanese beers, and one of if not the first craft beer I’ve ever had.
Baird Beer Shuzenji Heritage Helles
I encountered Baird Beer first at Banji Kaichou. Despite the name, it’s a Japanese brewery. I picked Shuzenji Heritage Helles because the name suggested it’s gonna be a light German beer, which most likely means lager, which most probably means I’m gonna like it.
Ginga Kogen Pilsner
A Pilsner usually means that I get a taste I’m familiar with, since I grew up drinking pretty much only Pilsners and other mass-lagers. The brewers claim the beer is a very clear and pure Pilsner.
Matsue Beerhearn Pilsner
A Pilsner from Shimane? This sounds promising. Matsue’s brew isn’t exactly what I expected though.
This Iwate local beer called Kinkura was recommended for summer, so of course I decided to give it a try.
