GarrettB (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
September 1st, 2009 - First on the tasting venue at the Yebisu Beer museum in Tokyo is the Yebisu Major Weiss. The color is dandelion yellow, hazy, with a thin and compressed head, though it’s never very easy to tell how a beer is capped from a taster glass. The aroma is sharp, but not too sweet, though it does feature the captivating aromas of lemon, citrus rind, and a dry pithiness - welcome aromas in a country with a still maturing craft beer industry. The palate is surprisingly heavy given the style and aroma notes, with a basic sour lemon pungency, and given some body by a solid cracked wheat flavor. The aftertaste narrows and simplifies the more complex flavors to a generically wheat and savory taste, and then finally descending into a nice breadiness. This is likely the best beer I’ve had in Japan to date, and in good surroundings too: two thumbs up on the Yebisu museum, complete with the good beer it serves.

Draught at the Beer Museum. Cloudy yellow - white head. Banana, elderflowers, freshness, citrus, fruity, wheaty, orange, sulfor. Plain - but classic.
