Japas Cervejaria | Kasato Maru

110 years ago, on June 18, the Kasato Maru disembarked on the Santos' port, bringing the first 781 japanese immigrants to our country. Our release is a tribute to all the immigrants and descendants that inherited and spreaded this culture that totally influenced our cultural formation. Our beer will be a New England IPA, refreshing, hopped and with 6.5% ABV, with Dekopon 1 addition on its recipe. A fruit of japanese origin that arrived as an "immigrant" in our country.

  • Look: golden color, clear, with a good white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: medium citric aroma, bringing remembrance of orange and tangerine. Very light “mineral” aroma;
  • Taste: its taste is citric as well, reminding of orange, mainly, but also a little of mango. There is some bitterness as well, in a medium level;
  • Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation and a dry and short finish;
  • Overall: Good New England IPA. Balanced and with a high drinkability.
This beer review was made by somebody which is studying every day to be a better beer drinker but, despite that, isn't a specialist or a beer sommelier. In advance, pardon for any gaffe. If you have any corrections or suggestions, please mail me.
  1. Citric fruit, hybrid between kiyomi and ponkan.
