COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finest barley malt, premium hops, smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste.

Editor's Note: Also brewed in the US: "Anheuser-Busch began brewing Kirin Lager, Kirin Ichiban and Kirin Light at its Los Angeles brewery in 1997. The agreement marks the first time Anheuser-Busch has produced foreign brands for sale in the United States."

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Sharp aroma typical of lagers but with heavier hops than most American versions. Pale gold body with a light white head. Thin taste similar to Budwiser (not coincidental given this is brewed by their company for the US). No malts at all and heavy hop notes in the ending.

Golden. White head. Sweet little bready aroma and taste. Watery. Not again...

Zeswaft (1370) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2006
about as good as a pale lager can get which is still not good. Light, crisp, and clean. Not worth trying.

morrdt (685) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2006
24 oz. can. Woot! Nothing too impressive about this beer, other than the aftertaste. Drinkable, but I won’t go looking for this beer.

rlgk (10655) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2006
Light golden, small white head. Sweetish, malty aroma, some corn. Weak malty flavor, some fruit. Thin and boring.

McKnizzle69 (89) - Machesney Park, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle: Not much to talk about as far as aroma. Decent head with little carbonation. This is the Miller Light of Japan. Really bland and watery

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Draught. Gold colour with thin white head. Some dead pale malt aroma, some odd citrus fruit. Can I taste rice and maize? Certainly some adjuncts in this. Then a sickly prickly finish. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Too gassy and flavours are indistinct

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Draught. Ok, let keep this simple. This tastes like corn and sugar. Corn and sugar. Not even fresh corn. Canned corn and sugar. It’s not good.

lovelacm (48) - Niceville, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Large bottle @ I Love Sushi in ABQ, NM. Large white, frothy head atop a clear yellow body. Not that much aroma to pass along.. some grains, but that’s it. Light, unobtrusive flavor, but nothing special (definately not Special Premium Reserve quality). Yes, this does put out the fire of oriental spices, but not much more.

The only good thing about this beer is that it will cut through spicy flavors. Nothing special.
