These are my first Japanese beers since our Joshua finished working in Japan. One of these was good, the other one was bad. They came from Booths supermarket, a great place for beer buying, although there do not seem to be many of them about.
Hitachino Nest, Saison Du Japon from Japan
5.0% yellow in colour with a thin head, bitter aroma and a foul acidic metallic taste, not good at all.
Hitachino Nest, White Ale from Japan
5.5% cloudy gold in colour with a nice head, the aroma and taste where more like a French / Belgian wheat beer than a German one but very nice.
