Kikusui Funaguchi Brewery Classic Yellow Nama Can (200ml)
The nose on yellow can is a mix of banana bread and honey and the texture chewy, viscous. At 18% ABV and the flavor is rich and has a hint of perceived sweetness followed banana and melon fruit with yeasty undertones. It goes well with lots of spicy foods because it is such a blanket of flavor and feeling.
Kikusui created the first unpasturized (nama) Sake can in 1972 and have been the leader of the segment ever since. Canned nama sake is a wonderful thing. The 200ml (one cup) cans allow for easy, light weight transport and they don't need to be constantly refrigerated like glass bottled namas.
