Brewed in Madrid for Nomada - one of Spain’s most exciting new Craft Breweries - Sakura is an intensely fragrant India Pale Lager full of fresh green Magnum, Sorachi and Simcoe hops, cherry blossom (hence the name Sakura), yuzu orange and Shichimi Togorashi – a blend of 7 Japanese spices.
Hazy gold beneath a luxuriant white head, Sakura breathes elegant floral, lichi and apricot hops notes with a dank spicy pine background note.
It's on the tongue that Sakura really comes alive, with all the power of a Samurai but the grace of a Geisha. The slender body has seductive cherry blossom on the front end, giving way to strong bitter notes. Finally, a firm but gentle chilli and ginger note takes hold to finish with refreshing lime, mint and orange perfumes all topped off with a delicious green tea astringency.
