Slightly worse than the Asahi I just tasted. Pours very pale straw color. Very watery and not much of aroma or taste.

Yorker (1246) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear yellow with a white head that quickly fades leaving no lacing. Aroma is malt, yeast, and some funk. Taste is malt and a small hint of hops.

Nothing much to really say here. Very faint aromas and flavors of malt. Very light bodied with a dry finish. Just another macro lager without character.

Into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a nice finger and half of foamy head. Lots of bubbles visible. Grainy smell, little metallic, short. Medium metallic bitter taste for the most part. It end with a weird sweet note. Fizzy and light body with a little stickiness to it. Meh.

probably my least favorite of the Japanese big boys. weak, light body, lacking flavor, what flavor is there is nothing exciting.

Bottle. Pretty boring and average lager. Has a nice bite to it, but I can’t tell it from half the other lagers I’ve had. Too expensive considering what it is. Went nicely with my sushi, though. :-)

Bottle at a sushi bar. Pours a transparent gold. Aroma of cheap malts. Taste of malts with light carbonation.
