COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

Another pale lager that is very Japanese. Still better than american beers but very light without a great deal flavour. I could take it or leave it but it wasn’t really memorable.

gold appearance, big white head that dissipates quickly. Adjunct sweetness in aroma that is not quite malt. Flavor has the same character. I'm guessing that there is rice in this beer, as it reminds me of Bud. Almost no hop character at all, but then again that is what they claim, no bitter after taste.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 This is an overlooked lager. Maybe the bottles I’ve enjoyed are fresher, but I totally disagree with the other comments. This was crisp and no bad aftertaste.

Looked like a light beer in the glass. Light to no taste, lots of bubbles. Nothing indistinguishable.

Of course, this beer is great to drink with an Asian dinner. It’s smooth, and we think it tastes similar to Coors Light.

cattaneopapa (146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. Pours a straw colour with a small white head. In the beginning the taste is malty which leads to a well balanced hoppy finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Good golden color. But no head and a very thin body, which i didnt expect. The taste is bland, and a little too bitter for me.

Very light beer, and of surprising quality. Smooth and easy to drink. Very little on the malt side, but a decent hoppy taste. Good brew.
