Yona Yona ale is a pale ale that is brewed all year round in Karuizawa, Nagano. There are two versions available: can and if you are lucky, on pump, such as in The Futnik in Ebisu. I purchased a can of this from my local beer shop, at 280 yen, although you can find it cheaper than that.
Yona Yona Ale Aroma and Taste
It pours very smoothly with a nice orange, slightly gold, body and foamy head that lingers. The body of the beer is smooth and slightly citrusy but not overpowering, with a good solid bitter taste. At about 5.5%, it is one of the stronger pale ales on the market, but it certainly doesn’t taste that strong.
