Sledutah (6897) - Utah, USA - MAY 13, 2014
On tap at the Haneda airport, last beer I had while in Japan. The best prices I’ve seen all week
Clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing. Aroma is grainy and sweet. Taste is light malts, grains, lemon with a solid bitterness in the finish
Nice, one of the better lagers I’ve had here.

Brentv (639) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Poured from a can in Narita, Chiba, Japan. Color is golden yellow with just a hint of orange. Thin white head with little lacing. Aroma is sweet, light grains. Taste is sweet, grainy, lightly hopped. Thin mouthfeel. Nicely carbonated. A small step above the other Japanese macros.

Renobob (1613) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75Cl au Japon. Malts et sucres en font une bière très agréable, ronde et assez corpulente en bouche compte tenu de son degré d’alcool.

aronvarga (441) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 26, 2014
350 ml can. Clear, pale golden color, short-life minimal white head, slight liqueur aroma with alcoholic notes, light body, decent fizziness, dry alcoholic taste with some malty sweetness, dry simply medical hoppy palate. It’s too dry and alcoholic for me.

borre_m (1251) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Pours golden with a white head. This is an industrial lager that I used to drink a bit of while i lived in Japan, this one was a gift from the wife when she came back from Japan last summer. It might have stayed a bit long in the can as there is a metallic taste to it. Otherwise there is slight diacetyl. The beer is very light, some hop bitterness and just a little malt sweetness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4349) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
Not sure why but for a long time Yebisu I was told is the "fancy" premium lager in Japan. No idea why as it pours just about the same as the others as a fizzy gold macro lager with a similar taste profile.

Bottle from a local supermarket. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of floral malt, and caramel. Body is light-medium, with a fairly thin texture. Carbonation is average.
