BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2003
Honey colored, slightly cloudy, hardly any head or flavor really. Wasn't too bad once it warmed up a little. Served it's purpose which was to wash down some Japanese food.

Interesting yellow beer. Light and clean. Somewhat malty. No discernible hops going on. Not terribly good really.

Yellow, golden hue. Small sticky white head. Grainy nose. Tastes pale and watery. Light bodied, not much going on. Metallic tasting. Im not terribly impressed by this at all.

How can I compliment this one? If urine in a bottle were coveted, then this would get a 20. Still, better than Bud so I can't give it all ones.

DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2003
Pretty average beer. The color is a little like copper/orange and the flavor is forgetable.

Generous head. Faintly hoppy aroma. Tastes like a big-brewery lager. Not bad but not too exciting.

Sweet soapy aroma and grainy sweet palate. Bitter finish but also a little sourness. I was confused by the name "stout draft" on the label.

Golden color with fast dissipating off white head. Light malt sweetness in nose and flavor. Very low hop rate.

An interesting brew that delivers far more hop value that one would traditionally expect from dry Japanese ale. Iím a big fan of IPA and ESBís, and love sushi, so tend to scope this one out when Iím looking for something a little different with some fresh cut fish. Sapporoís regular beerís are quite uneventful, but the Stout Draft from their Yebisu brand is a nice alternative. This one, like traditional Japanese lager/pilsener styled beers, pours very very light, with moderate carbination and little to no head. Because of the high hop count, the aroma on this one is quite pungent and may catch many off guard. The name itself is quite a misnomer, calling it a stout, when itís anything but that. Itís mildly spritzy, almost fruity, and delivers a heck of a punch in the aftertaste department. Itís not a beer that Iím wild about simply drinking on its own, but as an accompaniment with some great food, this beer is definitely a winner.
