Tasting Notes:
Kirin’s Nodogoshi Nama is one of the major players of the third tier malted beverages here in Japan. I don’t usually drink it, so I’ve never gotten around to reviewing it. However, the limited summer Nodogoshi Nama ICE version crossed my path so I had to check it out. Its ingredients list Hersbrucker Hops from Hallertau, Germany using Kirin’s ICE production method.

Nodogoshi ICE pours a very light color, almost like clear lemonade. For the most part has little flavor. There’s a slight hint of hops, a tiny bit bitterness, and a little sweetness. It drinks smooth with no aftertaste.

Find yourself at the beach with a hibachi going, you’ll be set with this one. It’s actually a lot better than the standard Nodogoshi Nama, which has some medicine-like bitterness, but even so Nodogoshi ICE is better left to be drank on someone else’s dime.

    I’m don’t like regular Nodogoshi Nama, so I was hesitant to try this one. ICE isn’t too bad. Nothing off about it. No reason to buy it again, though.
