Kirin Ichiban is a well-made and extremely eye-catching beer. Can be drunk at a variety of locales, whether you’re hanging out with friends or at a classy party.

Nice fruity aroma...slight fresh banana flavor at first taste.. then simmers down into a typical lager/pilsner

I have passed on this beer many times while dining and now I know why. Light washed out lager aroma, look and taste. Nothing about this beer is outstanding or even satisfactory. Leave beer making to the europeans.

Almost enough rice to be considered the ’King of all Beers’.

The smell put me off this beer before I tasted it. Yet the fine yellowy gold appearance enticed me enough to go ahead and taste it. The most distinctive quality of this beer, to me, is the gentleness in the mouth.

Smooth golden color, typical lager taste with a heavy aroma when poured from the bottle. My first Asian beer, but I hope to try more to see if there is anything better out there.

This is a very decent commercial beer. I was very impressed when I tried it. Not chemical tasting but had a very rich and pleasant taste. No rough edges or bad aftertastes. I recommend this beer highly.

Better than super dry. A bit more frothy and pale. A little bit lighter taste i guess but still pretty decent. Dunno where they got that can in the pic... special edition? looks cool though.

I had this while I have a cold and not sure if it is the fair taste test. It pors a hazy golden tone on my glass. I can feel the hoppiness clearly before I try it. Taste is too bitter to me. It is a nice beer but price here is too high. I think I am not going to buy it again.

(bottle)- Poured this into a dimpled mug. Great creamy head. Very pure yellow appearance, one of the yellowest ive seen. The taste has some fruity notes, followed by an aftertaste of malt. But it has a thin body, and a disapating head. Not the best brew, but not the worst either. Very drinkabe and above average for its class.
