Kirin Akiaji – Now in Bottles
As I'm now enjoying my 11th annual Akiaji carnival, I was pleased to finally find the elusive bottled variety hidden away in a corner fridge in my local Ozeki. The commercials always show bottles but one can only ever find them in cans. That is until now.
A word of warning though – take care not to confuse Akiaji with the cheaper Akinama. The labels look very similar, but while the Akiaji contains 330ml (or 500ml) of autumn themed refreshness, the Akinama contains a sickly bile that will rot your insides, bleach your soul, and make you very very unpopular if you bring it to a party and then proceed to drink everybody else's drinks (unless everybody else is doing the same thing – I don't go to those sorts of parties though).
Now to continue my search for the other holy grail, the elusive Yebisu bottle with two fish on it.
