Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale is a very unique brew, made with special grains of red rice grown in the old days of Japan. It pours a nice reddish, almost berry-colored hue, with aromas of fruity sweetness and sake.

With an impressive soapy-white head, a light sweetness is at the heart of Red Rice Ale,  with complex sake-like flavours and a malt sweet notes with hints of strawberries in the nose and palate. It leaves a slightly sweet, smooth and refreshing after taste. The sake notes that come from the rice add a unique touch and shows how playing with different ingredients in traditional styles pays off. The beer is a very easy drinking experience, without the feeling of the 7.0% ABV strength.
