look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear golden brew with a foamy white head.

Smell: Bold malt presence with a good hop profile. Clean.

Taste: Sweet malt with a semi-bitter hop finish. Good attention to detail in this brew. Consistently good.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Dry finish. Good consistency.

Drinkablity: Very well crafted all-malt beer. Deserves a place alongside the world's great beers.

Serving type: can

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.
