UPDATED: OCT 13, 2015 650ml can . Drank from a tulip. Holy shit , maybe the coolest shaped beer can Iíve had the pleasure to pour bus from ....lt looks like a beer can sent back from 2037 . I was 99 % certain I had rated this , I know Iíve drank it before , but alas a surprise new rate. Golden colour , with a two finger white foam head . Nose of floral hops , citrus , bready malts , cardboard , hay . this lager dranks pretty nicely , pretty soft and light , with bready sweet malts , rain water bitterness , spice , some subtle glue to remind you that Asian lagers are not the slickest . I like a good no bullshit , easy to drink non Pils lager . Good one.

The typical Sapporo that you get here at a Japanese restaurant. I revisited Kirin recently and wanít impressed at all. This is slightly better, but still a bland forgetable pale lager however you look at it. Does have some mild hops to give it a near pilsner-like feel. Make sure itís really cold though if sampling!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Aroma is bready malts without much complexity. Appearance is clear pale yellow with slight sparkle and frothy 1 finger-width head with poor retention but decent lacing. Taste is straight up the middle moderate sweet. Palate is light to medium bodied with a bit of a slick texture, minimal carbonation and pretty abrupt finish. Overall, better than macro domestics but thereís pretty much no reason to drink this other than in an Asian restaurant to pair with the Asian cuisine/experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light, gentle flavors and aromas with some floral grassy character and the dry finish Iíd expect with the use of rice in the brewing.
Would make a great combination with food in a traditional Japanese restaurant.
