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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Bought this mostly so I could knock it off the list and help me towards my Untappd badge. This is a typical cheap watered down export lager. Very watery, not very tasty.

Pours a clear light yellow with aroma of slight corn. Taste is light and bubbly, minimal flavor. This beer is not complex at all, its your tyoical light beer just with an asian theme.

Unlike the other reviews for this beer, I will claim that this is one of the world’s best beers. Smoothness, genuine hops taste with zero bitterness!
Subtleness is the essence of this master brew from JAPAN.
’Little taste as said in these reviews is only that people reviewing are not understanding this beer at all’
This blows away regular Kirin in taste. While people may call it watered down, I say not the case! It was created for supreme drinkability, with select flavors with the one bad thing to me beer has BITTERNESS!
This beer is BETTER then ALL light beers, period!!
Micro brews while interesting, at least none I have run across have ever come close to a ice cold Kirin Light. note the KIRIN LIGHT in tap does have a clear edge to Bottled Kirin Light which is already amazing !
