Tasting: Yebisu

Yebisu is brewed by Sapporo Breweries in Japan. My friend Jack suggested I give it a try after he saw it advertised at a Japanese Restaurant in Encinitas.

Tasting: Chilled to ~35 degrees (f) from a pint glass.

Appearance: 3/3 very clear yellow.
Head: 2/3 light head that thins quickly.
Aroma: 3/3 Mild malt aroma.
Flavor: 2/3 Faint malt and very faint hops.
Mouth feel: 3/3 Medium-high carbonation, light body, malty finish.
Overall: 2/3 This was a good beer, but nothing stood out, I think I prefer Kirin, but I will need to do a comparison someday.
Buzz: 2/3 mild buzz after 1 glass.
