Retail giant Aeon has once again procured an exclusive limited production brew from Suntory. In doing what Suntory does very well in the whisky world, they have produced a blended beer for Aeon: Suntory Royal Blend.
A mixture of aroma and bitter beers, Royal Blend pours out to a nice tan color while its hoppy aroma fills the air. The roasted malt comes through on the front with a hint of coffee and a subdued bitterness stays on the tongue. The Royal Blend hits a nice balance of rich full body and has a clean easy-going finish with just a hint of sweetness.
Suntory has produced an interesting brew for Aeon. It definitely is different than most other beers, while maintaining a wonderful rich flavor. Find yours at an Aeon grocer near you, while supplies last.
