Clear amber, medium white head that settles quickly. Malty and slightly floral aroma. Light sweetness, a little pine, floral notes, light bitter finish. Decent for a lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 02/2015. Poured a crystal clear amber colour with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly to a collar and laced OK. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma strongly malt and with slightly sweetness. Taste slightly bitter with a hint of malt and was a bit skunky; becomes more malty as warms. Light body. Smooth, crisp, light with a tart bitterness on the finish. One to drink cold and fast before it warms. Brought back from Japan by daughter Chrissie.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 .
