Suntory’s fall offering for its The Premium Malt’s label is Aki Kaoru Ale. This ale is brewed with dark malt for a rich color while its bottom fermenting yeast brings out its fruity flavor and aroma.
Aki Kaoru Ale pours into the glass with a fiery red color and a fruity, yeasty aroma. The first gulp is full and smooth, bringing a ton of malt across the tongue and down the throat. A faint sweetness seems to tone down the bitterness on the finish.
For Suntory beer’s flagship brand, Aki Kaoru Ale is a solid beer for the fall season. It has a fruitiness and rich flavor that can’t be found in the standard beer selection.
