My Notes:

  • My Rating: A-
  • Why I enjoy it: unique milk flavour! and non-milky
  • Where I got it: Tokyo, Jan 2012
  • How much: ~¥500 ($7)
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: Yes

Tasting Notes (straight, chilled): pours clear and slightly yellow, minimal CO2, zero head, zero retention. Strong milky white chocolate on the nose (!, surprising). Tastes of the richness (濃厚) of Jersey milk, bright 6/10 sweetness, partial apple fruitiness with a slight alcoholic aftertaste, mild 2/10 sour tart and tangy finish. Overall clean flavour and refreshing. Interesting flavour profile.
