2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at Matsukawa Saketen. A deeper amber gold than the Suntory. More of a grainy rough smell. Taste is similarly rough maltiness at first then caramel/toffee. It is ok but I preferred the Suntory fall beer.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
