3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kirin Light (3.2% alcohol by weight) has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and not a whole lot of lacing left behind on the sides of the glass. The aroma is faint, but one does detect sweet grains and some malt. Taste is of sweet barley malt, standard beer flavor, some mineral water notes, and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Kirin Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, for a beer, it is good, and for a light beer it is most excellent. No off smell or tastes, whatsoever. RJT

Bomber shared at an Asian American fusion restaurant. Pretty bad. Don’t think I’d get this one again.

Clear pale golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain and corn. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt and slight earthy hops. The finish a little metallic with a grainy aftertaste. Below average overall.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle to pint (ordered by my wife and ticked by me). Looks fine; a transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes of light corn (tastes blander though) with an average light mouthfeel. Volleyball beer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells like "beer" but tastes and feels more like "beer" flavored carbonated water. I usually think of "imported" (yes I know its technically made in the US) versions of American adjunct lagers as being a bit more refined or at least palatable, but this one is not much better than a Coors Light... maybe less agressive carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a small white head. Very light bready aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is very clean - like barley flavored water. I can only imagine the hops. So this is more or less what our troops used to get. Poor bastards.
