Hitachino Nest Beer XH

The first time i tasted this beer was last October 2011 when i went to one of thirstdays group eb at the Craft Bar at the Fort Strip in Fort Bonifacio. It was love at first sip!
Once poured into the glass, you start to see the medium high foamy head. And you'll know its ingredients are fresh because of its copper brown appearnce. It has a fruity and sweet aroma, The taste is excellent, clean and crisp with a perfect pinch of hoppiness. I actually came back for it and drank it again tonight because i felt guilty not sharing it to you. Its a bit pricey at 320 pesos but its worth every pesos i guarantee you. Easy to drink beer!

Definitely, one of my favorites! Ba scored it just "good" though.
