For an off-brand drink, this is surprisingly good – though perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised because TOPVALU’s Lager Beer is better than most of the happoushu (fake beer/second class beers) out there. There’s a medium body here and the sweet/bitter flavor of the yuzu meshes well with the moderate/high amount of sugar. Nobody really experiments with yuzu as a regular flavor – TOPVALU’s is the first regular flavor I’ve seen aside from Kirin’s Yuzu Hyouketsu, but I’d love to see what Suntory would do with a Zero Yuzu.
