Tasting Notes:
Suntory’s second offering in the new genre category for this year’s fall and winter seasons is Hop Time PM9:00. After you’ve finished a few cans of PM6:00, you’ll be ready to take on the PM9:00 which brings Citra hops to the table. As the night passes, its citrus notes will be a welcome change.

Pouring out a deep golden color in the glass, PM9:00 has a yeasty and citrusy aroma. The first gulp is full and bready up front with a wonderful orange rind flavor that envelops the mouth. It finishes smooth and malty with a pleasant bitterness on the back of the throat.

If you’re one that likes the flavor Citra hops impart on beers, this one is right up your alley. All in all, it’s a great tasting new genre that really offers a different tasting brew at a truly budget price. Even if it’s just to take a breather from your daily drink, PM9:00 is worth every yen and then some.
