2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BevMo. Bottled on 03OCT08. Gold color with a substantial white head. Aromas of honey and fruit. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is clean with some grassy hop. That touch of honey - flavor, not sweet - stays to the end. It is just a bit bitter in the finish. AB does a great job, just not very picky about which job, but this is a good thing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber with a weak head. The aroma is neutral and the flavour is mild with notes of hops, honey and flower. The bitterness is weak. Harmless and quickly forgotten, but probably nice for beginners in the world of beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a light golden straw color with a voluminous white head that settles down to a thin layer.
S: The nose is sweet and lightly grainy with notes of rice in the background that become more prominent as the beer sits in the glass for awhile. Pretty standard and unoffensive.
T: A similar story with the flavor. Plenty of sweetness with a definite adjunct taste, but itís a fairly mild and crisp beer, not like the adjunct lagers of this country.
M: Light in body with a lively level of carbonation.
D: For what this beer is and the meal I had it with, it worked quite well. I donít really think Iíll be sitting down with a sixer of Kirin Ichiban all the time, but itís a nice light beer.
