This is draft beer topped with something frozen. It looks like ice cream, but it is not soft serve ice cream or normal froth.
Actually, it is icy froth which is also made of beer.

(This is not the frozen beer.)
At this bar, it takes 4 minutes at minimum to be served draft beer because they need time to make fluffy and smooth froth by pouring 3 times like that pictured.
In Japan, usually bars and restaurants offer draft beer with 20 to 30% of froth in the glass.
They think that it is the best way to preserve its flavor and temperature.
Japanese people enjoy both beer and froth just as well.
I know this amount of beer froth is not common in some countries.
I understand you don't like it, but please don't complain about it in Japan. It is an essential part of Japanese beer culture.
