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.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2003
another beer with a thin, white head and little carbonation. however, it still has a nice, bubbly palate. there's a slight corn aftertaste...

Acaro (308) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2017 Aroma: Cereal and nuts. Appearance: Gold color with clear sparkling liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Light sweet notes and medium bitterness. Palate: Light body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Short bitter astringent finish. Overall: Soft and easy to drink. A bit of alcoholic touches in the end. Not great but not bad features either.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Light golden color, thin white head from the tap. Light malts in the nose, not much else. High drinkability but really no beer flavor.

mickut (305) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden ith a quickly dissipating head. Taste is mild, with hint of bitternesss, palate is watery and harshly carbonated. Aroma has light malts, hay.

nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 29, 2016
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.

glacier (301) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Kolor słomkowy, wodnisty. Piana słaba zostawia otoczkę. Zapach słaby, lekki ryż, minimalny karton. Smak kwaskowaty, wodnisty, pusty. Lekki nijaki lager.

BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 Pores like a typical pale lager, flavor was lite with little bitterness. Lite malt flavor with a nice balance of sweat to bitter. Not bad.
