2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mostly just not very interesting. Darker and maltier than many Asian beers, which often have a heavy rice component. This was sweet in the nose and the mouth, with a malty first impression. Almost no hoppy bitterness. OK appearance, golden with a small white head. But just not very interesting, except as an example of a well made industrial lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours yellow with a white head. Nicely carbonated. Fresh malty aromas. Sweet malt taste with a clean hop finish. Decent texture, not too thin. Clean after taste. Nice simple lager, great when eating sushi, especially in Japan.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
During my most recent visit to Tokyo I tried Yebisu Premium for the first time. Golden pour with small white head. Strong aromas of hops, co2, and malt and barley.
High carbonation, refreshing, slightly dry and bitter, very malty. Wouldn’t be falling over myself looking for it elsewhere.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours golden yellow, minimal head, small carbonation, ringed retention, minor lacing. Malted barley and bread on the nose. Major malts and barley up front that persist through to the end. 3/10 sweetness, aggressive hoppy 6/10 heavy bitterness, lingers on the center of the tongue, bitter follow-through, long finish. Medium-bodied, low-medium complexity, long-finish, good carry. This is definitely a food-beer; it goes well with tonkatsu, curry rice, sushi, any Japanese food really. But as a session beer, not much in terms of explosive depth or flavour epiphanies. Watery finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty plain and boring beer. I guess it’s not too bad for a pale lager but nothing really sets it apart from all the other pale lagers in the world

Can - Golden with no head. malt and also a hint of cloves in the aroma. Dry hop and malt taste very sharp up front and doesn’t linger.
