Not quite a cup...but single serving, like a cup!

From the brewery's extra dry, classic line. Notes of kombu dashi, freshly cooked rice and a hint of ripe banana. A complex pepperiness and mineral water character play with the very dry, umami-dense finish. Palate-cleansing, appetite-whetting and versatile.
