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."

Looks like your standard American fare, but some hints of malt. It went well with the Hibachi food at the restaraunt and did compliment the ginger flavors in the salad dressing.

Draught. Ok, let keep this simple. This tastes like corn and sugar. Corn and sugar. Not even fresh corn. Canned corn and sugar. It’s not good.

Draught in The Chimney House, Brighton - 28/8/10. Golden colouring and grainy taste. Pretty standard lager.

Meh this was gross. I was getting some sushi and thought what the hell I’ll try it. Wet cardboard and paper. Cream corn grass staleness. Not the best aromas. Taste is bearable but not that great. Taste is not its strong suit. Overall won’t be trying this again.

This being my fist attempt at Japanese beer wasn’t a total disappointment. Not a bad color when hitting the glass, but the head disappated quite rapidly. The taste was somewhat sweet but I have no idea sweet of what. If I was in Japan, I would now know one beer to order.

This is a very mild beer from Japan that is great if you are eating sushi and hate Saki or need something to wash fish eggs down. Otherwise, stay away from it.

This was a very light beer with not much head when poured from a bottle. There really was not much flavor and I would put this in the class of many of the macro pale lagers

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2004
(4 Jan 04, 5% ABV) A medium yellow brew with an average white head and no lacing to speak of. I noted a light malt and grass in the slightly sweet-smelling aroma. This is an unremarkable but drinkable beer.

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Only a very slight skunk odor when the bottle is opened. I detect some hops in the aroma, but few in the actual taste. The flavor is a slightly sweet malt/ wheat. The color is a light gold. no aftertaste. Easy to drink
