2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The time I got into some Kirin, it was actually imported from Japan - not brewed under contract elsewhere.
It is called an ’American standard’ beer - I wish, based on the ones I had!!
This was a delicious, beautifully balanced beer with only one flaw: The color. It was a screeching sunshine yellow - I swear it was artificially colored, but it didn’t affect the taste a whit.
I end as I began, though - I have not tasted the ’Made in Canada’ version. RE-RATE: I have now - nothing like the import I had some years ago.
Not offensive, but bland, bland, bland compared to the original. The reviewers who state that it’s ’better in Japan’ are almost certainly right, I betcha.

Bottle. Pours strawcoloured, firm head, good carbonation. Not much aroma but a nice, refreshing taste of discreet hops and malts. OK.

Can @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear pale yellow with airy white head. Faint aroma of yeast with touches of hops and rice. Sourish, ricey and grainy flavour, with a good deal of yeast and hoppy notes. Mildly bitter finish. Watery. Nothing special.
