Cheers to these beers from Hokkaido
Looking to unwind after a stressful day with a drink in hand?
If enjoying an ice-cold beer on your couch sounds like heaven to you, check out the new range of Abashiri Beer from Cheers, which is going for $7.90 a bottle (usual price $8.90) from now till July 31.
Produced by a craft beer manufacturer in Hokkaido, this range not only tastes good but is also aesthetically pleasing, with unique colours derived from natural ingredients.
You can even use them to mix yourself an Insta-worthy cocktail.
It comes in five variants to cater to different flavour preferences, from a dark stout to an easy-to-drink beer with fruity notes.
The Abashiri Premium is a well-balanced beer with a fruity flavour and rich aftertaste for those who like pale ale-style beer. It is made from malt that is roasted by the manufacturer in-house with its own recipe to bring out the flavour of the malt.
If you prefer a premium stout with the rich taste of caramelised malt, select the Kangoku no Kuro stout, which is brewed from five varieties of malt.
For fruit beer lovers, the Outou no Shizuku beer should hit the spot. Flavoured with cherries harvested in Hokkaido, it boasts a sweet and sour taste with minimal bitterness.
Alternatively, you can also go for the green-tinged Shiretoko Draft , which has a clean tea-like flavour reminiscent of the smells of spring in Hokkaido.
And for a true end-of-the-workday cool-down, Ryuhyou Draft will do the trick. It is made using water from drift ice that floats to Hokkaido from the Sea of Okhotsk, a part of the North Pacific Ocean that runs between Japan and Russia, imbuing the beer with a light and refreshing taste.
It is also hard to resist the novelty factor of its unique blue hue derived from seaweed and gardenia colouring. - HARSHITHA SMRUTHI L. KANDAKUMAR
