Japanese coors light. Yellow water. Works well, when cold, to wash down the soy sauce and wasabi.

PotjeBier (3451) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2016
On tap. Unfortunately they didn’t serve any good beer, even though the diner was great, what a shame. Pale golden golor with dense white head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity with some grainy sweetness. Flavor is light sweet and fruity. Light bodied. Floavor lingers. Not bad, but totally uninteresting.

Tasted okay with a big bowl of shoyu ramen. Pretty bad grainy aftertaste if you drink without eating something.

PowY (796) - AUSTRIA - DEC 6, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a white head. Mild aroma of dough. The taste is lightly sweet with some bitterness in the ending. Not much flavor apart from some dried fruits, thus boring but not unpleasant.

Bière servie dans la plupart des restaurants japinois de Paris, la Kirin Ichiban est de couleur ambre sombre, produit peu de mousse (ou alors j’ai été très doué en la servant), fait des petites bulles. Les mauvaises langues y verront de la pisse effervescente. L’étiquette est jolie. Le goût de malt de blé est amer et peu prononcé, très peu de palais, pas de fin de bouche notable. Bue fraîche c’est passable. Bière moyenne qui accompagne convenablement un repas mais on est loin de la dégustation. Mieux que la Qsingtao dans mes souvenirs...

Aggiebob (1174) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Draft. Pale gold in color poured with a frothy white head. Light malt aroma with a sweet corn and light citrus flavoring. Light bodied. An average pale lager.

No aroma Looks like an el-cheapo gas station beer. Looks like urine in a cup. Bright white head with okay lacing. Sour palate. Gross.

2.3
Luneylane (202) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 6, 2016
Not interested in clocking up ticks, promised myself I’d only rate the really good ones. However, since they’re so widely available in Taipei, and since I actually worked in Japan for five years, I’ll rate this one just for fun. A bottle from Welcome supermarket. Aroma: sour bread. Appearance: clear amber, minimal head. Palate: light-bodied and thin. Average carbonation, abrupt, slightly bitter finish. Taste: a medium degree of bitterness. Drinkable on a hot day with a plate of yakitori, but nothing special. Not the best Japanese macro.

Aroma... nada demais Espuma fraca Sabor maltado... um pouco aguado, mas realizou o que se compromete a ser...
