真檸檬對決 Orion香檬啤酒雞尾酒 跟 Cass客思檸檬啤酒 Orion Shikuwasa Beer Cocktail & Cass Lemon Beer could be better choice of Lemon taste in Taiwan

檸檬啤酒,是最吃力不討好的水果啤酒項目。所有人都知道把檸檬角塞進啤酒玻璃瓶、擠檸檬、加檸檬汁等各種檸檬與啤酒搭配喝法,而且檸檬不貴。

Lemon Beer is difficult to be rewarded with a fruitful result that almost everyone knows how to use lemon to mix with beer. And lemon is cheap in Taiwan.

所以,打檸檬啤酒名號,至少要做到兩點:不甜,嚐得出真檸檬味。

As lemon beer is concerned, you gotta do this with true lemon flavor and not over-sugared. Otherwise, nobody would buy it.

Orion香檬啤酒雞尾酒,瓶上標數量限定,Orion與過去在沖繩旅遊的美好回憶的連結,觸動我伸手去架上拿這款啤酒。

Orion Shikuwasa Beer Cocktail is taged as limited brewing products. It hits me with Shikuwasa picture linking to my sweet Okinawa memories.

去沖繩,必喝過Shikuwasa(日語:平實檸檬)果汁,這款沖繩特產與台灣青檸檬比較起來:Shikuwasa酸味淡帶點淡苦味,香氣接近黃檸檬或葡萄柚,台灣青檸檬較酸,比較不苦。

Comparing to Taiwanese lemon, Shikuwasa is a bitter and less sour fruit.

Orion香檬啤酒雞尾酒,入口最令人激賞的是,雖然果汁只有0.2%,但除了酸味淡之外,竟然神奇地有檸檬皮的淡苦與香氣,像極了在沖繩居酒屋香檸果汁泡盛的味覺,解暑、解膩、完全不甜,酒精度5.5%也不打折。

Orion Shikuwasa Beer Cocktail recreated the flavor of Okinawa cocktail with Shikuwasa juice served in Okinawa Bars. It tasted not sweet at all and used the bitter taste of lemon skin which could ease the heat of early Summer.

And its 5.5% alc/vol is as good as Orion original beer.

這款啤酒雞尾酒在7-eleven架上賣59元台幣一瓶,愛檸檬與沖繩風味的朋友,建議湊三罐打八五折,每罐單價降到台幣50元。

It costed USD. 1.95 per/can in Taiwanese 7-Eleven convenience store. 15% discount for 3 beers is still a better way to taste it.

如果要找更低價檸檬啤酒,全聯超市新上架的韓國Cass客思檸檬啤酒,售價台幣35元,但它不只是酒精度3.9%勝過一堆酒精度2.5或2.8的其他品牌檸檬啤酒,嚐起來真有檸檬味。

Cass Lemon Beer priced USD.1.16 at PXMart, Taiwan. Its 3.9% alc/vol is much better than other products 2.5 or 2.8 alc/vol.

The point is Cass Lemon Beer tasted like real lemon.

在台灣市場,啤酒區其他要價台幣四十元以下的檸檬啤酒,香精味劣、嚐起來遠不如七喜或雪碧等檸檬汽水。

Other similar products in Taiwan priced under USD 1.30 tasted like cheap fragrance. I’d rather buy 7-UP or Sprite.
 
在台幣六十元以下價位低價檸檬啤酒裡,只有Orion香檬啤酒雞尾酒Cass客思檸檬啤酒拿出誠意,給出該有的檸檬味。

It seemed to me that both of Orion Shikuwasa Beer Cocktail & Cass Lemon Beer didn’t try to fool you around with sugar. This Summer,they could be the better choice of fruity beer priced under USD 1.98 in Taiwan.
