Day 187 Drink: Orion Premium Draft

Orion Breweries began brewing in Okinawa in 1959. The brewery has a partnership with Asahi that helps it reach a wider Japanese market. In the U.S., Orion is not a widely distributed beer, but I was lucky enough to find a bomber bottle and be able to cross Okinawa off my beer tasting destination list.

Orion Premium Draft pours a light straw gold color with a fluffy white foam. The nose on this beer has just a slight floral hop presence. The beer is extremely light and delicate, with hints of sweetness at the base of the flavor. A good brew for a heat wave.
