The Lexus of Sapporo. Balanced, smooth, yet flavorful. Rather expensive due to its production origin.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
