3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
roasty, grass, earthy, golden, clear, frothy, lightly bitter, light body, astringent, bitter. Deliciously skunky aroma. Tastes quite lighter than expected; with a bit more body this would be quite a contender. Still an amazing beer to crack open and take a whiff of.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint showing perfect gold hues and a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows mostly sweet malts and corn.
The palate is well carbonated and thin bodied with a corn sweetness on most of the palate and a light ale bitterness throughout the background. Not very interesting but it’s alright.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Wheat, malty and slightly fruity aroma and flavor. Not at all good bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Almost unpalatable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

기린 브루어리-그랜& 기린 더 아로마5.5%ABV 병 꼭지에서 옅게 풍기는 꽃의 아로마. 하지만 라이트한 텍스트에 비해 상대적으로 강한 아로마.중반 이후 살짝 홉의 비터감이 치고올라오다 ’옛날크림빵’의 크림같은 테일로 마무리.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet hop aroma. Yellow gold, very active small bubbles. A bitter sweet citrus up front though it leaves an unwanted lingering bitter fuzz on the tounge. Slightly better pick than the average conbini selection.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours quite clear yellow, just a bit of foam. Aroma has rubber, something artificial and feels like non-alcoholic beer. Taste is slightly better, has a faint hop bite, light and clean taste. Mouthfeel pretty thin, drinks OK but well, not really remarkable, craftsmanship doesn’t shine through..

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Personally I’d use an uglier word than "aroma" to describe the smell, but it actually tastes a little better than the original Grand Kirin.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (sampled in Nagoya)
Deep golden color, good cloudy white head, lace. Very fresh hop, hop pellet aroma. Light-bodied. Somewhat sweetish malty flavor with "green", hop pellety flavor. Light citric notes. Interesting beer from the macrobrewery but unfortunately beer what you want to drink only once.
