Pale yellow. No head. High carbonation. Very watery. To avoid, really dirty water.

Can beer, lager. Aroma is nothing special, palate is quite short. Easy to drink, good with food.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2012
500 ml can w/ autumn maple leaves. Light sweet grassy aroma -- ripe hay. Pale straw color, big white head, pretty good lacing. Very mild sweet initial flavor with a substantial hit of carbonation; cereal and grass notes in mid palate; hops barely trickle over the tongue in final. Thin body. Not bad.

worldbeertaste (1690) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Pale gold with a quick dissapearing head. Light smell of malt and corn with a soft hoppy element. Thin watery body. Taste of bread and corn with a light bitter hop finish. Its impressive how thin and watery this massproduced Japanese pilsener is.

WVHouseofBeer (889) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2012
This beer is nothing special but it is better than regular Kirin Ichiban. Has just the faintest presence of hops and malt.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2012
This beer is what Ichiban needs to manifest its will to power. Apparently submitting to the bland impress of its larger corporate partner, this beer is the definition of pale yellow beverage with just enough generic hops and grain to make you go "oh right, this is a beer."

kevnic2008 (8454) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2012
Clear golden color, minimal white head. Minimal aroma with some pale malt. Boring

retinadoc (123) - - APR 19, 2012
Similar to Kirin Ichiban. Average carbonation and aroma. Simple hop/lager flavor. Clean finish. Not a beer I’d drink by itself; goes well with sushi.

edgallow (2342) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2012
12 oz bottle pours yellow with a white head. The aroma is of grains. Taste is just basic beer, nothing special.
