Limited edition Yebisu for Asuka II is mellow and smooth for the taste of luxury and relaxation.

Can @Mark’s place (from notes). Aroma is a bit floral, with some maltiness. Flavors are smooth with a bit of appreciable malt and a final touch of underlying bitterness. Typical J macro, even as a special release.

Sapporo do appear to be playing about with making a few slightly more interesting lagers. This one has a sweeter, more mellow character but seems to be 100% malt and better than most mainstream Japanese lagers.

A premium priced yebisu without much of a difference in taste. Slightly smoother feeling than normal yebisu, but not as smooth as the white.

Can. Mellow malty aroma, cereals, maybe a touch of cardboard, a bit of honey. Deep gold with a fine, low head. Color halfway between regular Yebisu and the Orange Premium can. Malty, rich, cereal flavor. Too sweet, really, yet with some tangy fruit and a bit of citrus hop. Rich and smooth. OK, but boring and needs more hop flavor as usual. Has a decently bitter finish, though. The regular Yebisu is better, I think. Why do they bother with these half-assed gimmicks that are just a bit different than the normal one? Too expensive at \290. Sapporo, try to make a really different beer just once!
