Bottle (Tokyo)
Clear golden color, small steady white head. Sweet malty, perfumic aroma. Medium-bodied. Malty with some alcohol. Light bitterness. Clean and certainly decent pale lager from Kirin.

czlowiekwiadro (196) - POLAND - APR 30, 2014
ładny, chmielowy, ziołowy zapach. dość porządna piana, złoty, przejrzysty kolor. w smaku pełne, ale z wyraźną ziołową, łodygową goryczką. jedno z fajniejszych piw szeroko dostępnych w japonii

Brentv (309) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle pour in Narita, Chiba, Japan. Pours a clear straw yellow with a pillowy white head that dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing. Aroma is yeasty and grainy, stale. Taste is unspectacular, a bit sweet, a little bitter, with a bitter finish and aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel.

biirusaikou (555) - - MAR 9, 2014
Grilled bread, floral hops. Roasted malt, fruity hops, orange candy, bread, bitter finish. Quite tasty and well-rounded for a major Japanese brew, likely one of the very top Kirin brews.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1655) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2013
6% clear deep gold pourvwith a thick lfluff off-white head. Rich malty nose, creamy mouthfeel, a bit sugary but fairly malty, a bit of neutral hop bitterness to. Ok for a macro. nice palate

dfearnley (884) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Straight from the bottle. Hops and malts, but not very distinct. A little skunky, lots of bread, and wheat. A pretty standard macro lager with a bit more hops.

Ferris (3011) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle - From bottle - Pale malts and some mild earthy grassy hops. Clear gold with small white head. Big dark malt and bitterness with some fruit esters. Very odd, almost a medicinal liquorice flavor .

minihame2 (177) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 11, 2013
Wow, I really thought this was going to be a stout. Aroma is very sweet with some caramel. Body is golden and clear, white head. Taste is weak, even weaker than regular Japanese beers. I would not recommend this one.
