1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thank you for this gift Chris. Pours a clear pale golden with a weak white head. Aroma consists of yeast, grain, and a bit of grass. The taste is very grainy. Maybe some hay. Grainy taste at the end with a bit of yeast. Short aftertaste. Light body with a thin texture. There is quite a bit of carbonation in here. I’ve had worse. However, since I will never find this anywhere remotely close in my part of the world, the novelty factor is pretty high.

Can. Thanks mom! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of hay, grains and some grass. Flavor has some grainy malt with light sweetness, and a rather crisp bitterish finish. Rather light-bodied. Pretty easy-drinking when served cold.

On tap at the Haneda airport, last beer I had while in Japan. The best prices I’ve seen all week

Nice, one of the better lagers I’ve had here.

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.

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.
