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."

Very good with my very good Japanese dinner. Pretty crisp as expected, better quality than most in that it didn't break down upon warming.

Frank (2772) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Pale yellow orange. Thick but diminishing foamy head. Intricate lacing. Grainy aroma with a hint of cut grass. Mostly flavorless. Very slightly sweet some earthy notes. Quick, clean finish.

zathrus13 (1704) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2008 Not too bad for a ’standard’ beer. Not much aroma, but the taste is a bit bitter, which really is a good thing.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2003
(Paired with sushi) Clear golden body with small white head. Aroma is light and sweet, some bread. Taste is light, sweet and watery. Minimal bitterness that's in the swallow. It's not bad, but it's certainly not worth seeking out.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Blond color. Milder taste than the regular. The palate as well is too weak.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2003
fizzy yellow with white head, A fairly run of the mill bland uninspired lager. Not as offensive as BMC, but certainly nothing to seek out either

Panzuriel (1289) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Okay light lager with a nice malt taste. Decent amount of carbonation with out any complexity. Decent beer. Goes well with Chinese food. Go figure.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Had on tap at P.F. Chang's on March 29, 2003
A so-so beer. Nothing really stands out - neither good nor bad. A fizzy yellow beer, the head is slight and the taste is weak. Niether good nor bad, this one sits right in the middle.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2003
unremarkable but not offensive. I was acutually able to finish the beer, which is a good sign. Light fizzy flavor, a tad fruity aroma, but not much else

HH (165) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Had at Chang's Mongolian Grill. Largely unspectacular. Hints of malt. Slight hops in the finish. Still more flavor than a BMC. Oh, and on the bottle it said it was brewed under the supervision of the Kirin Brewmaster by Anheuser-Busch Los Angeles Ca.
