Good to see this Japanese craft beer from Baird Brewing Co make its way into Oz. They’ve been around for a few years and just recently moved into a new brewery. I noticed with both beers that they both seem bottle conditioned and looked into this a bit more to find they are kräusened.

Been dancing around this beer at my local Dan Murphy’s for some time now as to whether or not to try it out! It seemed to be a slow moving beer, then another Dan Murphy’s helped me make my mind up by sticking it the cheap bin and couldn’t turn away a sub $2 bottle of this beer with still plenty of life left on it’s best before date.
This pale ale poured a hazy orange/brown colour with a thin beige head. It has a great sweet citrus (orange) and floral aromas with hints of honey. Sweet malty honey flavours coming through yet not a heavily hopped or bitter thin bodied ale.
Overall a good tasting sessional beer, which now aided in me buying a few more styles of beer from this brewery to review in coming weeks.
