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."

Okay, this one is okay if it is really cold and you drink it really fast, before the real flavors can sit in on your palate and you really figure out how bad it tastes.

another skunky import. not reccommended. buy budweiser that will at least be fresh and save your money

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2004
aroma was surprisingly like a sparkling white wine with almost cidery fruitiness, fresh floral hoppiness. light golden lager, small head, high carb. clean hoppy flavours. crisp, claen, lightly lingering hop bitterness. dissappointing flavour after the promising aroma, boring lager with exciting aroma.

Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#51).
Light yellow beer with an ok head. Sweet malty aroma. Bitter hoppy and malty flavor. Quite heavy for a lager but somewhat harsh.

This is not good. It’s a dull pale gold with a wisp of head. It’s got the bottling date on the bottle (brewed by Anheuser Busch for Kirin) and it’s fresh, but it’s still a little skunky. The flavor has a little straw malt, but also has something that’s making me think of bile.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Pours a clear, bright gold with a skunky aroma. Reminds me of the Heineken smell. No head and minimal lacing. Flavor is heavy on the corn syrup with a tinny aftertaste. Drink this one COLD!

igneous1 (1503) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2004
clear, light golden, white head. aroma is slightly of malt and perspiration. flavor tastes typical of for the style, little wet papery, and adjunct...although i don’t know whether or not this beer uses adjuncts. still far and away better than the budweisers of the world.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Bright gold. Medium carbonation. White head. Moderately malty, lightly grassy aroma. Soft, mildly grainy feel. Sweet, somewhat biscuity malt flavour w/ a light, grassy bitterness in the finish.
