In a limited convenience store release over the summer, Suntory created Master’s Dream Muroka. This ultra premium all malt beer was an unfiltered (muroka) version of its popular The Premium Malt’s Master’s Dream brew, stated to present a rounder sweetness only found straight out of the aging tanks.
Muroka pours a deep golden color in the glass with an aroma full of malt. The first gulp is thick and full, very malty and smooth with a slight tang to it. The mid-palate is quite round with a back-end that slides down the throat easily, however there is a bitter kick bites back of the tongue. Tones of some sweetness a hint of citrus are present.
Master’s Dream Muroka is an excellent beer. Full of flavor and depth, it’s sure to satisfy the pickiest beer drinkers. Since this was a summer release, Master’s Dream Muroka is long gone from convenience store shelves. However, you may run across it on the internets.
