Astringent and soap driven with a light non carbonated look. Overall sudsy but quite nice and drinkable on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Amazon as part of a Yo-Ho 4 can set. Served in a pilsner glass it pours a deep gold with a good 1 cm head of fizzy foam. Sweet, lightly bready pilsner malts. Sweet, then bready then a soapy sweetness kind of reminding me of that mini-purple chewing gum that had a slight soapiness to it. The finish is semi-dry, refreshing and lightly hoppy, it has enough of a malt profile but it a bit too sweet for me plus I don’t dig that mild soapiness. Actually once I get used to it that initial soapy feeling is gone and it becomes a pretty average pils. OK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pale gold with almost no head. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Fairly smooth, but not a lot of flavour. Not very different from the big brewery pilsners.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale yellow/gold with thin white head. Aromas are grainy, seltzer-y, like a cheap beer. Tastes pretty similar to crappy Japanese macro brews, pretty thin, not much hop character (a little nondescript bitterness on the finish). Not my favorite Yo-Ho.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Yona Yona Beer Kitchen. Grainy aroma, taste is similar but little sweet. Bit perfumey. Hey it’s alright, but not much more.

Zero finger head. Cloudy pale pills, unremarkable flavor. Grassy, little citrus... It is organic so you feel better drinking it but it might as well be Asahi. Get their Tokyo black instead.
