Bought a can of this in Iruma, Saitama, Japan during the cherry blossom viewing season in April. Took it out and enjoyed it as it should be. It's a great Czech pils with lots of hops that make it great for sniffing. However, as it warmed or toward the end of its life, it became increasingly sour and it began to ruin the taste a bit. Overall, I would go for the standard Yebisu over this, and even the other standard Yebisu The Hop. Maybe something about this particular batch of Czech hops, but that ending sourness made me... well, sour.
