105. Free-Style Tax-Saving Malt Beverage (Happoushu)

This is either lager or ale which has been brewed with the object of tax-saving by reducing amount of malts less than 25% among overall grist. Any grains including un-malted barley, rice, and corn may be used as fermentable carbohydrate. "Happoushus" which are brewed with herbs, spices, fruits, or vegetables are not included in this style but are appropriate to enter as Herb-and-Spice Beer, Fruit Beer or Field Beer. This beverage is not necessarily to brew along with the traditional beer style guideline. Aroma and flavor either from hops or malts are low to high, and must keep lively freshness. Hop bitterness may be either high or low and must be clean without harshness or astringency. A fruity-ester aroma is acceptable as far as balancing with other characters. Overall impression keeps beautiful balance in between color, carbonation, residual sugar, body, etc. accompanying with superior design sense of brewer. DMS and diacetyl should be under threshold (1-FU). Turbidity due to yeast and chill haze are allowed.
To allow for accurate judging the brewer must provide additional information about entries in this style. Comments could include character of aroma/flavor intended by brewer, adjuncts, and malt's ratio. Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
