Splash Beat is the newest new genre from Orion. Just in time for the hot Okinawan summers, Splash Beat features Hallertau Tradition hops and is actually brewed in Okinawa just to give you that authentic island feeling.
In the glass, Splash Beat pours a pale straw and has hints of pineapple on the nose. The first gulp has a ton of effervescence and sports a very clean taste with nothing off-putting. It has an easy going finish as well, with just a touch of bitterness.
Splash Beat is a bit like drinking a flavored spring water. It’s not very malty or hoppy, and there really isn’t anything to talk about. It’s just a clean drinking summer beer for those who just need to scratch their throats.
