Emerson's Sonkei Japanese Lager (330ml Can)
This isn't just another homage to Japanese lager. Sonkei, after all, means respect. So, we followed the traditional process precisely, extracting only the first run of the wort. This means only the purest, finest, most flavourful ingredients get through. You can taste abd feel the difference, in a beer that's super-clean, crisp, smooth and of course dry. From the land of the Long White Cloud, to the Land of teh Rising Sun: sonkei.
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or youll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
