1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern- I ordered this for the free pint glass. Pale yellow color with a small fizzy head. No real aroma. Slightly better than BMC but not by much. Dry finish. Nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 FL OZ ($3.30) This is a very light tasting beer and goes down like water. Its not bad but I prefer some taste to my beer. I’ve come to expect all lager to be pretty much watered down beer. nothing too intense and I don’t recommend this one.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
There is nothing to this brew. It is aroma-less, looks pale bordering on clear and tastes thin. The finish is slightly floral, short, and probably the cleanest I have ever tasted. This is not necessarily a good thing as there is absolutely nothing memorable about Kirin Ichiban.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated from old notes. A little grainy in taste but smooth an surprisingly pleasant. Light and airy but not really my style. Turns a little skunky. Pouring more and aerating it seem to help.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. There is really not much difference between Sapporo, Kirin, and Asahi. All 3 are Coor’s light type clones. I mean come on, do you expect rally good beer from Japan? No, of course not. You expect good food!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. It has a faint aroma of malted corn and hops. This beer tastes of corn and bitter hops. Not the best beer, but a pretty good well-rounded lager that is neither too hoppy nor too malty.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Watery pale lager with very little to go on. Slightly sweet and refreshing on a hot day and not much else.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Somewhat refreshing, the taste is unoffensive, and has a bit of a sharpness to it, but no - this is not a good beer by any means...
