Can 0.5 l. Golden color, small-medium head. In aroma boring metal, grass profile. In flavor almost the same but with some grains/malt. Just boring.

bnwokedi89 (53) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Taste like japanese version of bud light/ miller light. Golden blonde color with limited aroma. Clear pour with medium carbonation. You can see the bubbles rising in the pint glass. Smooth finish that makes this beer worth a taste especially on a sushi outing!

GreatDane1632 (561) - North Dakota, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Yup, this is a Kirin Ichiban. Typical Japanese lager plus a hint of hop bitterness. Still better than BMC, but not by much.

Bottle. Appearance: 1 finger white head, clear, straw yellow color. Aroma: floral, biscuits, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet malt throughout, light lemon citrus at the front of the beer. Overall, basic and drinkable.

Taboada (378) - Compostela (Galiza), - SEP 6, 2014
330 mml bottle tasted on 05/09/2014. Light yellow colour with a low white and bubble head. Taste is watery with cereals. The best is the label and the glass. Next one please!

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Light, easy drinking with decidedly malty backbone. Slight acidity takes away from the overall experience. No detectable bitterness.

R4N5H (126) - SINGAPORE - AUG 29, 2014
Pint on draught at Extra Virgin Pizza, Singapore. Good head and carbonation. Nice golden amber colour. Light malt, but not much else on the palate. Close to a pretty standard commercial pilsner, but a good effort. Safe choice.
