What Yona-Yona Ale lacks in flavor it makes up for in ubiquity. Craft beer can be hard to come by in Japan, and having a brew like this show up regularly in grocery stores is a ray of hoppy sunshine in a swamp of Asahi Super Dry and Kirin Lager.
Yona-Yona has a nice floral hop nose, with a well balanced malt backbone. It is not the most flavorful Pale Ale, and to judge it by the standards of American Pale Ales and IPAs it is only a fair effort. But it is the hoppiest Japanese craft beer sold in my area, and that sort of thing is worth rewarding.

A: Amber body, choppy white head.
S: Floral hops.
T: Not brilliant, but not half bad. Bitter and snappy with some orange peel, floral hops, honey and tea leaves. Honey prominent in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and about on point.
O: It's faux craft beer but great for something you can pick up at a convenience store in Japan so extra marks.

I had at d.b.a. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
A. It has a dark orange color, and it's opaque. It has a big foamy off-white head with some lacing.
S. Nice citrus and hop scent.
T/M. It has a sensational orange taste. Some mild bitter hops. It's fruity and more on the dark fruit side. A hefty rye like taste in the finish. Smooth with a mild bite.
O. A unique, beautifully fruity blend.
