Uma cerveja que agradou. Espuma branca de boa formao. Dourada. Cheiro de cereais, suavemente frutado. Sabor tambm suavemente frutado, levemente amarga. Densa. Bem maltada.

Draught at Jabez Clegg, Manchester. Look, there was nothing else on and I was thirsty, OK? Other than appearance (typical lager colouring with attractive, lasting white head) theres very little of anything here, aroma, taste or palate. Just an alcohol delivery system and not a very satisfactory one at that.

Golden color...fluffy head, with good lacing. Light aroma. Mild malt flavor up front, with just a touch of sweetness...crisp mouthfeel. Back is very light, with somewhat of a dry finish. Nothing really too complex with this brew...pretty light and very easy drinking.

bad beer. Birra normalissima, per niente buona, non si distingue dalle birre commerciali pi famose.

This is for "Kirin Ichiban Special Premium Reserve" Pours a golden transparent color with a white head that disapates quickly. There is not much aroma to speak of. Budwiesser comes to mind as I drink it. Not a good taste at all. In fact it will be hard to finish the bottle. Overall this is a pretty undrinkable beer. Bombber bottle.

Clear golden brew. Sweet malty aroma with dull fruity notes. Somewhat malty flavor with notes of hops with a bitter ending.

another beer with a thin, white head and little carbonation. however, it still has a nice, bubbly palate. there's a slight corn aftertaste...

Homebrewerguy (306) - Oil City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2008
nice looking lager beer, crisp, clean taste with a bit more body and hoppier than Bud, not much hop flavor though which detracts from the overall drinkability of this beer
