Average pale lager. Not much aroma, not much taste. Something wet splashing around, well carbonated, something lemony lurking in the background. Perhaps a great beer along with a meal of sushi. I don’t like sushi, and I didn’t like this beer. Sorry.

Bottle. Not my favorite style of beer so I was suprised how much I enjoyed it. Malty. No bitter aftertaste. Good summer beer - refreshing on an 80 and humid day.

$2 bottles at adowntown Chicago restaurant--it must be cheap. It tastes that way. Sweet yellow, somewhat more-ish and a decent antidote to spicy Japanese food. Not a good beer but in the moment, with others buying the same beer, it was fine enough. Bottle.

Medium sweet light bitter. Finish is average lager, light hops, watery. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Very boring.

My notes for regular Kirin apply but for the fact is is a shade darker and carries some residual sweetness that isn’t in the usual release. A bit of a find here in New Zealand though.
