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."

CraftyBeerTour (111) - Barcelon, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2014
On draught. Aroma of bean and has that wet stone whiff too. Looks OK, nice white lacy head, a little palid. Watery and a little insipid.

corkyrory66 (810) - BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Pale lager de 5% abv, qui porte bien son nom puisque sa couleur est jaune très pâle comme un soleil d’hiver … Clarté pure. Bulles assez fines. Mousse blanche qui retombe vite. Arômes de citron, citron vert, pain mouillé. 1ère bouche liquide sur des agrumes et du piment aigre !! Le tout évolue en eau de lessive... 2ème sur la pils allemande. 3ème sur la pils tchèque, et la pastèque. Sur la longueur, rien. L’alcool est nul. CONCLUSION : l’empire du soleil plat. Il est vrai que c’est une pils...

gorkogrlo (207) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 3, 2014
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 (88) - 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!

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 (466) - 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!
