Wheat malt, fine barley malt and select hops create this "smooth as silk" flavor.

Can. A pretty good drop. Silky indeed. Fresh and crisp, with fruit and hop in the nose. Really well rounded and moreish. I like this better than the regular Yebisu, which was my favorite Japanese macro for a while. Will definitely have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Available almost anywhere in Japan, this is probably the cheapest wheat beer you can get your hands on and worth a spin.

350 ml can bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.

Clear golden yellow colour; Half finger head with white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of malt, with light wheaty tartness, fairly light floral, white bread, light dough, yeast and faint grass; Minimal sweet taste of light malt, with thin floral, faint molasses, light bread, faint booze, shades of lemon and very low bitter grassy hops; Light body. Thin palate; Mouth feel is like the Yebisu proper got thinned by wheat malt: maltyness is almost like a Euro Pale Lager, notable wheaty taste with hint of tartness. No adjunct, no sweetness, with a bit of boozey hint reminesant of a very thin Maerzen. Thin bread and hops, no silky feel at all. Clean taste but booooring… Hoppiness is very light floral and faint lemony grassy nose and taste. Bitterness is muted with barely detectable bitterness for wheaty thin booey non-finish; Slightly dry after taste. Quite easy to mouth.

Comments: I don’t know who comes up with the idea of adding wheat malt to an otherwise malty lager will equate silky smoothness. In this case, it is neither. Thin like a macro with slightly off-target bready boozy hint. Given Yebisu’s up-market image among Sapporo beers, this one aimed high but shot low. Not pleasing at all.

delikatny ale przyjemny zapach -słodkie owoce i lekkie drożdże. kolor jasnego złota z dość mierną, ale występującą pianą. w smaku pełne, dość słodkie, z małą goryczką. wyraźnie słodowe. ale jak się chwalą, jest bardzo gładkie, dość nisko wysycone i bardzo pijalne

Can @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear pale yellow with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with notes of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sourish, grainy and ricey notes. Bitter aftertaste. Watery. Nothing special.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Can. A clear, pale golden beer topped by a dense, white head of moderate size. The aroma has some fruityness, tropical, sweet fruits, with a touch of pale malts and grass. The flavor is pretty much the same, with some bitterness chiming in towards the end. Medium body, dry and smooth. Bitter, fruity finish with some pale malt flavors. A very smooth beer, but it lacks big time on aroma and flavors. Very clean though. 131123

Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Very weak aroma of malt with fruity and floral esters. Dry, malty flavour with a phenolic note
