Yona Yona Ale by Yo-Ho Brewing Company

Yona Yona Ale

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.

Safe as houses.

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.

Been drinking beer since longer than I can remember. You can find me in a bar, on the slopes, or doing DIY. I enjoy porters, imperial porters, golden ales, and amber / viennas.
