Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna by Morita Kinshachi Brewery

Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna

Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna is another beer from the three star brand by Morita Kinshachi Brewery. It is an amber beer crossed with a Vienna style beer from the 19th century. Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna is a 6% beer, so a little on the strong side compared to their other beers.

Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna Aroma and Taste

Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna had a light golden-amber colour with a slight foamy head to it that didn’t hang around for very long. My wife thought I was mad for sniffing it for so long but it had a malty aroma to it that was paired with caramel notes. The beer itself was a tad bitter for a lager. It had a faint aroma of roasted malts and I was unsure if I liked it or not. Apparently, Vienna lagers are popular in Mexico, but then so is Sol too, which doesn’t really say much. It was a bit of a drag to drink and the bitter roughness wasn’t too my liking. The aftertaste wasn’t much better and left my mouth feeling empty.

I wasn’t impressed with Mitsuboshi Beer Vienna at all and really can’t recommend it, unless it’s cheap. Like 50% off. Or more.

  1. I like the Vienna more than the other Mitsuboshi styles. It is a bit expensive, mostly around 550 yen a bottle. But I think it is a nice style, being malty but not too sweet.
