Abishiri Brewery in Japan's Hokkaido prefecture has started manufacturing a low-malt beer with milk in it named "Bilk", after learning local dairy farms were just throwing out their surplus milk. "After they put beer yeast and hops into the drink and began the fermentation process, the beverage looked and smelled like tea with milk. However, when fermentation was complete and the drink cooled down, it had the same color as beer." Bilk is supposed to have a fruity taste to it, I wonder if it's like Yakult?
