Brewed by Suntory specially for the Aeon group, Suntory Amber Beer – Akane-iro no Nama Biru was released in November last year. It is brewed with 100% roasted malt and has a 5.5% ABV. Aside from the micro brew scene, amber beers are quite a rarity on the grocery store shelves, so it was nice to see this one.
Suntory Amber Beer’s dark color in the glass, definitely did not disappoint on taste. It was very hoppy for a Japanese brew, showing off the perfect amount sweetness and bitterness. This amber was very well rounded, and was a joy to drink. I only wish I had more in the fridge.
