Hitachino Nest Real Ginger Brew

Tan colored head on a reddish pink beer with just a little head and lots of lace after.
A sweet aroma. Some honey and spice with of course ginger.
Rich creamy mouth feel.
I can certainly taste the alcohol but it has a sweetness that cancels that out right away. There is citrus and a honey like sweetness with ginger creeping through. This is nice. Very refreshing. The first good brew I've ever had from Japan.

Spitfire Kentish Ale

A medium thick and slightly off-white head which leaves a thin clumpy cap on a dark amber and clear beer.
The aroma has some malty sweetness and a very faint hint of vanilla along with some peppery spice aromas.
The feel is full, rich, and creamy.
Tastes start quite fruity with raisins and date flavours. There is a bit of honey and quite a bit of citrus hoppiness. A faint touch of vanilla comes through as well. The sweet fruity flavours lead the way, and the spicy citrus bitterness brings up the finish. A very bright tasting ale.

I love the name and their slogan "Spitfire, The Bottle of Britain". Shame the "Bottle" is such a clumpy looking thing, The "Spit" was such a sleek and streamlined machine. Oh, well, can't have everything and the beer is not bad at all.

Spitfire Kentish Ale

Dark amber colour with a bit of pink in it.
Lot's of white head.

Ah, traditional English Ale.
Lot's of barley tastes with some bright bitterness to it.
A full bodied ale that has a lot more flavour than most of what you can get here.

Never mind all the different tastes, I don't care. I just like a lot of flavour in my beer and this has it.
Keep your lousy tasteless lagers.



I agree that most of what you find here in Ontario are not great lagers. They are made for people who don't really like the taste of beer, but not all lagers are like that. A good one is crisp, clean, and full of flavour. You need to search a bit more. I do like the Spitfire though.
