0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a clear gold with a quarter inch cream colored head. Dissipates quickly. No lacing at all. Smells of sweet corny malt.
Taste is really bad. Sour and unpleasant. Mineral watery in character and lightly vegetal. Mouth is watery. No crispness. Limp, yet fizzy. Blick. This is foul. Run, don’t walk.

Of course, since it is a light beer, it won’t be half as good as the original beer it’s based on. This is the case for this beer.

Corny grainy aroma. Clear light yellow, no head. Corny like a fifties haircut. Bleah.

Pale, weak, yet slightly refreshing. Went alright with my food. Not over powering at all.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Pours a light yellow color. Aroma is grainy with a slight hint of malt. Some acidic/sour smelling as well. Very light flavor, a touch of malt and alot of water. Not much going on.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
yellow body white head. seemed to be a more watered down version of Kirin, if thats possible. Minimal hops and mostly sweet malt flavors. It was not a bad beer, but it certainly wasnt good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is malty with rice like flare. The appearance is light pale gold with a small head. The flavor is exactly like the aroma with very small hop bitterness. The palate is almost like water. This is a very likeable for a light beer. There is not much flavor but there is nothing gross about it either.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very much inferior to regular Kirin. This is so watered-down/ thin/ and lacking in flavor of any kind that it really seemed pointless to finish, but I did anyway, because it still is beer, right?
