Kiuchi Hitachino Beers

I just completed my notes on a pair of beers from the Kiuchi Brewery of Ibaraki, better known as simply “the Japanese ‘Nest’ beers.” I had tasted each before, but never gotten around to sitting down conducting a proper tasting, as I have now done.

In honour of the beers’ Japanese origin, allow me to present those notes in haiku form.

Cedar notes in beer?
Yes, but in this case it works
A classic, indeed
