500ml can into glass. Clear pale yellow beer with fluffy white head. Sweet malt nose, a little metal. Clean and bitter, finish is short and tinny. Adequate Asian lager.

Bue en canette de 50cl. Bire blonde trs limpide avec une gosse mousse blanche. Au nez elle noffre pas grand chose. Au got elle est douce et rafrachissante avec peu damertume.

Une pils tout ce quil y a de plus industrielle, insipide, amre, bref, rien dire de constructif.

BeerInHeaven (423) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2016
pours clear straw gold with a better than average white head (for the style). Aroma of grass/hay and slight skunk. Decent carbonation with a hint of a bite on the palate. Not a bad flavor, it doesnt have that typical macro lager corniness. Fairly dry on the finish. A not half bad pale lager.

fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Skunky aroma. Nearly clear pour. No highlight flavor that presents itself enough to promote and other than the skunky aroma there arent any unpleasant highlights to promote either. I was able to drink it though I wont visit it again. I ticked a 3 star rating because I did consume it.

MetalNHopHead (1761) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Served cold enough and drank fast enough to mask any unpleasantness in the beer, my experience with Ichiban was brief and forgettable. Light body and cereal grain starchiness. Very little bitterness of other distinguishing flavors to speak of.

adamnase (552) - Kronoby, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2016
0.33 l bottle @ Zan! Kista, Stockholm. Pours pale golden color, almost no head. Bitterish taste, but totally average, leaves a somehow dry feeling. Not bad but not good either.
