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 (1840) - 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 (575) - 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.

Pours clear pale yellow with frothy white head. Light hoppy aroma. Taste is regular macro lager, a bit metallic. Light body, refreshing. Ok for a pale lager.

0.33 l bottle bought in a random Spanish store. Pale golden color, no head. Some strange aroma, which i cant identify. Bitterish taste, but totally average, leaves a somehow dry feeling in my mouth. Not bad but not good either.
