Draught from the Yebisu museum in Tokyo. Clear copper, huge creamy white head, which holds in most of the aroma. Sweet initially, a fair bit of malt flavours, some pine and a little fruit. Mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, but fairly light bodied without the head.

A nice variation from the other Yebisu offerings, but smell and taste come off somewhat harsh.

Mild caramel malt, red fruit aroma. Sweet malt, cherry, floral hops, bitter finish. Pretty decent and drinkable amber lager, clearly tastier than your usual industrial lager.

Westkyoto77 (520) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 1, 2013
Draught. Burnt copper head, foamy aromatic white head. Roasted malt, fruit, good bitterness. Just the right amount of depth and a slightly sweet but rounded finish. Really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2127) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2012
Can for 7-11. Mild caramelly malt , yeast, some sour grape, and clean hoppiness. Clear light reddish brown. Good light roasted malt; a sour tinge in mid palate; finish is smooth and mild. Thin-medium body, which thickens up a bit in the final. Pleasant, mild stuff. Could use a bit more body. Good

Bif (1443) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Can- Pours a clear amber color with a creamy off-white head that fades to bits of lacing. Mild aroma of fruit and some malt sweetness. Not a lot here. Taste starts with a bit of a hops nip, then some caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, quite smooth and a bit creamy. Decent drinker, good for a couple. Fairly average run of the mill for the style.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 29, 2012
Lata. Clear nice deep amber colour. Sweet malty fruity toasty aroma. Good mouthfeel. Sweet malty fruity caramel flavour, quite pleasant for a Japanese macro!

EdKing (1866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Rerate at Yebisu Bar in Kagurazaka. Served very clear light brown colour with nice white foam head. Taste is very grain husky, touch of toastiness but a light lagerish body and crisp bite. Biscuity malt but it lacks anything else.

The can is awesome every year. Last year they only had the Yebisu logo and got rid of all of the other text, so it was simplistic and awesome. This year they went with the wild text thing, but I still like the flavor. Definitely something to look forward to every fall.
