The salt of the Earth

Brewed using the difficult kimoto technique, which takes longer, but adds rich complexity to the naturally clean, dry taste. Jitsuraku’s medium body is permeated with an excellent earthy quality, and goes down smooth. Watch for very subtle salty undertones and a cheeky rice finish. A wonderful brew that honors the Earth it came from.
