2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color: Copper, very little foam.
Aroma: Baked bread crust, roasted grain, earth, a little yeast, ripe apple and coffee.
Flavor: Bready, roasted grain flavor but with light body. Clean but short finish.
Comment: Flavors lack the intensity and body that a German bock would have. I prefer Sapporo’s Munchner Dunkel.

Clear amber color, small off-white head. Grainy, malty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Flavor has some grains, caramel and short finish with low bitterness. Not as good as expected from other ratings. Still has nasty macro taste vibe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Circle K. This 5 malt beer pours a deep bordering on amber gold with a thick beige head that vanished without a trace and in the blink of an eye. Kind of a rough, sweet, lightly grassy aroma - reminds me of smelling my Dad’s beer as a kid, old school beer aroma. Medium to full bodied with a somewhat chewy mouthfeel. The taste is interesting, earthy malts then a hit of sweetness before a grassy mildly bitter finish that lingers. Pretty good and it makes me think of my childhood/high school days smelling malty beers my grandfather/father were drinking. Not too shabby.

świeży, słodowy zapach. ciemnozłoty, przejrzysty kolor, średnia, ale dobrze krążkująca piana w kolorze złamanej bieli. w smaku pełne, słodowe, ciężkie, ze sporą, przyjemną i dość długotrwałą ziołową goryczką.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
toast, roasty, earthy, citrus, orange, frothy, lightly bitter, medium body, flat, bitter. Firstly, this is a beautiful beer when poured; thick head, deep orange in color. Nice malty aroma with citrus notes. Doesn’t resemble the usual Yebisu much in taste. Lightly sweet and fruity, but could use a bit more in balance of the bitterness, which lingers a bit longer than necessary. Overall an impressive addition to the Yebisu branding.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Aroma is malty, sweet, almost candy like, light hoppiness. Taste is good, quite rich, decent bitterness, malt sweetness, something that reminded me of peanuts... Has that major feel to it but is actually pretty alright.
