The Mill Brewery Oishii

Style
Japanese Rice Lager
ABV
4.5%

Occasionally a beer name comes along that just perfectly captures the drink at hand. Oishii, which refers to nice, tasty or delicious in Japanese, is just such a name. The Mill Brewery’s Japanese rice lager is restrained but filled with delicate flavours and that balance is perfectly captured by the accompanying artwork of Yue Yamanaka.

The incredibly pale straw lager is dry, refreshing and easy-drinking thanks to the heavy use of flaked rice with only a gentle wave of floral notes and flavours akin to water crackers. In other words, It’s hard to think of anything that could pair better with a bowl of ramen other than a second egg. And what could be more delicious?
