Rather than writing our usual whole page review for a beer, we’ve come up with this mini review page for Oriental Brewing at their Higashiyama and Korinbo branches.

Oriental Brewing Higashiyama Beer 2・オリエンタル ブルーイング東山ビール2Oriental Brewing Katamachi Beer Ookami

ABV: 5%


Style: English Pale Ale


Oriental Brewing Katamachi Beer Ookami Mini Review

Appearance: Orange brown with a plump white head.

Nose: Malty with some hints of earthy hops. Low fruitiness but a subtle buttery nose.

Body: Initial bitterness fades to a caramel and earthy hop flavour. An edge of butteriness pervades but not offensive.

IBU: 9

Style: Japanese White Ale

Oriental Brewing Kima Beer Mini Review

Appearance: Light hazy golden straw colour with a fluffy white head.

Nose: Some hints of orange and coriander on the nose, with an underlying wheat biscuit aroma. Some spicy peppery notes once it warms up.

Body: Spicy peppery body with orange undertones. Light wheat and biscuit body and a dry body. Lingering orange plays nicely with the pepper.

Oriental Brewing Kagabacha Stout Mini Review

Appearance: Pitch black with a slightly off-white head that faded fast.

Nose: Chocolate, coffee, with some roasted black malts. Tea shines through once it has warmed up.

Body: Slight acrid body, but tea balances out. Interesting mix of chocolate and coffee flavours. Tea doesn’t linger long. Well made.

ABV: 5%

IBU: 9

Style: Fruit beer

Oriental Brewing Yuwaku Yuzu Ale Mini Review

Appearance: Hazy dull yellow colour with a pure white head.

Nose: Yuzu is the strongest aroma, almost to a washing-up liquid like level. Little else comes through.

Body: Tastes like a hefeweizen. Yuzu restrained in the body but tad astringent with some grapefruit. Fairly one-dimensional.

ABV: 6.7%


Style: Milk stout

Oriental Brewing Hobo Collaboration Mini Review

Appearance: Pitch black body with a slightly off-white head that clings to the side of the glass.

Nose: Vanilla, lactose, with chocolate and black malts paired with some coffee.

Body: Creamy body with hints of vanilla paired with dark malts. Once it warms up, some chocolate and coffee against the creamy flavours.
