3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bottle at the Cheese Factory in KC. They have a number of Boulevard beers on menu as well. Pours a beautiful deep straw colour, head dissipates quickly, not much lacing, persistent carbonation - this is the sort of beer you drink in a tall flute glass, slightly yeasty fruity nose- distinctive pears; very dry, a tad bitter, does not have the salty CO2 of many US pale lagers; quick finish, good sparking carbonation. Good example of the type. This bottle brewed in Japan. I was in Japan when it came out, the can pictured here is a garish example. It was well received by the expat community. The scores here reflect a snooty beer-bongers snootiness. This is an excellent example of the style. The fact that I only drink a bottle of this every few years is irrelevant.

Yup, this is a Kirin Ichiban. Typical Japanese lager plus a hint of hop bitterness. Still better than BMC, but not by much.

330 mml bottle tasted on 05/09/2014. Light yellow colour with a low white and bubble head. Taste is watery with cereals. The best is the label and the glass. Next one please!

Light, easy drinking with decidedly malty backbone. Slight acidity takes away from the overall experience. No detectable bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint on draught at Extra Virgin Pizza, Singapore. Good head and carbonation. Nice golden amber colour. Light malt, but not much else on the palate. Close to a pretty standard commercial pilsner, but a good effort. Safe choice.
