This is slightly better than the regular Kirin Lager..it goes better with food, and finishes nice and smooth.

Not very good. Tasted almost just like Budweiser. It was good with sushi, but I couldn’t drink this alone. Color wasn’t too bad for the style however. Head also lasted well.

maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - APR 8, 2002
Pours with a bright yellow color, produces a thin head, and contains a medium level of carbonation. The taste is slightly bitter, crisp, dry -- and almost neutral, except for some bitterness -- in the finish. This is a beer that is produced through low temperature fermentation and it is cellar aged for a longer period of time than most macrobrewed beers.

very slight aroma of yeast; pale, washed-out yellow with a very thin head; bitter taste and astringent feel - not at all to my taste

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2006
One of the better Japanese brews and goes great with sake and sushi. I sampled this with six other Asian style beers and this was one of the best. A nice malty flavor that is typical of the Asian variation of a pale lager. Quite refreshing!

KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle-Memphis. Very disappointing. Was looking forward to a crisp, refreshing lager and wound up with a stale beer - I guess this is the AB trademark.

mross (169) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours a pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of cereal malt and grass. Malt and corn flavour with a light grassy hop bitterness. Quite bland and boring. Overall not that enjoyable.
