A good brew and the best available next to Ginga Kogen beers.

This beer is a study in contradictions: The label calls it a "Stout Draft" in one place (and who knows that that is), then it reads "100% malt" and "brewed from 100% fine barley malt and select hops" elsewhere. Which is it? Anyway, this is definitely the best Asian beer I have come across so far, but still not a great brew. Still, I think Sapporo may be on to something. Pours a very orange color with a medium off-white head. Medium sweet malt aroma. Lightly sweet malt flavor and medium effervescence. There was some hops in the finish but everything seemed understated about this beer. Nothing really stood out, but if I am in Japan I will order this before a Sapporo or Kirin.

Not all that bad, i could dig this brew. It wasn’t the best, but it was a different beer, and it served its purpose of tasting like an average beer and containing some alcohol

I want my money back...it has the word "stout" on the bottle but it’s anything but. -1 on appearance for deceptive advertising. Skuny aroma, maltiness, mellow flavor, nothing remarkable.

I thought this was a perfectly good representation of the style. Even when room temp it never got too corny, or sickly sweet. It held it’s own. It’s not a world-killer helles, but it has all the right oily maltiness...mmmm. Fairly solid.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2002
A clear dark gold color. Some citrus and malty sweetness but still obviously a Japanese made beer. Has a dry lingering aftertaste. Had this at the Osaka Kansai airport for breakfast with Okonomiyaki

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2002
Clear dark gold in color, the head is white and generous, the lace is adequate. Nose is all malt, very little else to notice. Front is sweet, the top light, the finish is acidic, dry, and has a hop presence. Ranks #955 on my master beer list.

More flavor than most Japanese beers - misled by the word stout though - but not bad. Beats all of the ’dry’ Japanase beers I’m usd to.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 5/3/2003 - I bought this again because under the "Yebisu" on the label it says "Stout Draft" - Now doesn't that sound to you like it's gonna be a stout? Well, NO, it's still this Dortmunder style - and lucky me I just came home from dinner at Applebees - the only good beer they have is our local Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold - So how do they compare??? This has the same flavors, but diminished and lighter. Color is two shades lighter; palate is thinner; The flavors present are almost exactly the same, but the Yebisu tasted almost watered down. Original rating: I was somewhat surprised at this. had more hops and character than i expected. still, it was a bit thin. dortumder? hardly. couldn't hold a candle to GreatLakes Dortmunder Gold.
