Tasting Notes:
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.

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.
