This is Woopi’s best selling beer, and it’s not hard to understand why. A well-made rice lager is always going to be a winning session beer. Mr Miyagi pours a very pale yellow, and is as light, crisp and dry as you’d expect (and want) from any rice lager.

If you notice a smell of tangy lemon zest, you’re not imagining it. That’s the Sorachi Ace hops. I’ve always found this hop variety to be interesting and very distinctive. Sorachi Ace hops are like karate: dangerous in the wrong hands, but in the right hands they’re a thing of honour.* In this beer, they’ve been added late to bring a subtle but clear note of lemon zest that cuts through like a katana through rice paper. They keep you on your toes while you’re sinking this nicely balanced beer.

*Is this what the Karate Kid is about? Haven’t seen it. All I know is there’s a car washing tutorial in it.
