My favorite fish spot in Los Angeles, Sushi Zo
, just started carrying this which is a step up from my usual draught Kirin.I actually quite like some of the macro rice Japanese lagers when paired with raw fish. I realize they are all made somewhere other than Japan. Yebisu is not.It's has a nice malt profile - something you won't find in the rice beers. It also has a slight yeast flavor - something I've never really came across in lagers.
It's a unique beer and quite tasty. Enjoy with some sushi, if every you get the chance.
