Bottle, pours clear yellow. Aroma is some bread and malt. Taste is light sweet and minimal. Watery standard mainstream lager.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2013
Clear pale yellow with a nice but short lived head. Cardboard and boiled vegetables on the nose. Bland taste with virtually no bitterness except for the medicinal metallic feel of it all..

Had this with Japanese food. Poured pale yellow. Aroma of adjuncts and some hops. Not very good. Finishes slightly sour and metallic. Pass on this.

bleh, I should have just bought Budweiser. Very bland, leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

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.
