Can thanks to Masaki. Pours a reddish amber color with a small white head. A nice light fruity, toasted malt nose. Sweet toffee, caramel, very light. An unpleasant dirty harsh grainy flavor in the finish. Otherwise, this is fine. OK beer. Decent. Quite fruity.

One of the best mass produced lagers I’ve had, but still nothing to get too excited about, a lot better than most though. We’ll worth trying for the price.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
