3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium-strong malt aroma, some sourdough bread, light hop. Clear pale straw, little head, gentle carbonation, quickly sinking lace. Light, sweet earthiness, some umami. Slight astringency, mildly bitter aftertaste. Light and refreshing. One of the better Japanese macro lagers

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap in Tokyo. Yellow lager, slighly heavier than some Asian lagers, a touch of grain, just about drinkable, not great.

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.

Pours a clear yellow color with aroma of light golden malt. Taste is mild malt with a slight bite of bitterness in the aftertaste. A minor tart finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of corn, musty basement, and husks. Flavor of grass, crackers, salt, and brine with a crisp mildly bitter finish.

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.
