Ginga Kogen

type: Japanese wheat ale
origin: Iwate, Japan
price:$4/.3mL
abv: 5%

Oh my, what a wonderful surprise: a Japanese ale, in a cool bottle, that follows the German Purity Law. My main concern is the lack of carbonation, but the flavors are so crisp and well-defined that the beer is still wonderfully refreshing. I suppose I need to give Japan a little more beer-credit, or maybe just this brewery. Too bad it's a little too expensive.
