Do No EvilSake Lager • 6.0% • Wild Oats
A beer inspired by the national beverage of Japan, we brewed this refreshing sake lager with organic rice added to the mixture of barley malts, and then cold-aged it on oak stars that had been soaked in sake. Kanpai!
History & Style
Sake makes an apt accompaniment to its fellow fermented beverage made from grain, bīru (beer in Japanese!) The clean presentation of a traditional lager provides the perfect backdrop for the subtle fruit and wine-like character imparted by the accents of rice and sake. The label art features Japanese macaques taking a break from the cold winter with a warm up in a natural hot spring. Three very wise monkeys indeed.
Do No Evil pours brilliant gold with a dense white foam. The aroma expresses white grape, lychee and cereal grain. The flavour imparts tannin and sweet fruit notes with a firm but balanced bitterness. The finish presents refreshing white pepper notes.
Ginger and miso poached fish, nukazuke (rice bran pickles), triple cream brie or pecorino cheeses, white grape and lychee sorbet.
