First, a word about my high rating- the rating is relative to all lagers, not to all beer ever made. Second, review is of a made in Japan Yebisu.

Color- clear gold. Medium head quickly settling.

Aroma- mild bread and hops.

Taste- Clean, smooth, and refreshing. Finishes with a mild lingering dryness with hint of mellow citrus. A Lexus of lagers. Coworker from Singapore drove to Malasia 4 hours to hand it off to another coworker who personally fly this can to Austin.

Tasted May 2, 2010.

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.
