Brewed and bottled by: Baird Brewing Company, Japan.
How they bill it: richly fruity & malty, yet crisp and dry
My take: No idea how a beer can be romantic, but this one is. Starts off with the familiarity of a European beer but ends up with an unmistakable Japanese quality that wraps around your tongue, like a deep, long kiss by William Shakespeare ... but he's carrying a samurai sword instead of a quill. Drink with teppanyaki beef and the sounds of Yuki Ito.
