I call this "Old Dependable". This low malt beer has a big fan club. It ’s wet and very drinkable and very affordable. Alcohol level is always spot on. While this beer is not so exciting, it is in fact a great casual, hiking or activity beer all year round. Very smooth and pleasing could use some hops intensity but nothing to complain about. This beer will never let you down really, Kirin would be crazy to change it.

This beer is made using soybeans instead of malt as a tax avoidance by the Kirin company in Japan to reduce the cost. As a result it lacks body and flavor. It is an imitation of a beer. It tastes like a watered down pilsner.

Can. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, light chemical notes. Body is light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light chemical notes. Finish is short, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light chemical notes with fain herbal hoppyness. Not very enjoyable.

It’s a tick. Light spicy tones, smooth drinking from can. Why not. (Tokyo 201707)

molvis (1) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017 does not count
500ml can from a familymart in Osaka. Watery. A rather strange not brewed on barely beer, pours, smells and taste quite similar to many European or American stock lagers but leaves an aftertaste similar to eating fresh tofu. Great as a cheap thirst clencher on a warm day (or easy binge drinking together with salty snacks) but not anything to ask for in the pub.

Offensive. Gross chemical flavors. Tastes as cheap as the can looks. Thin and overly sweet with chemical notes. Gross really.

25cl can from a nearby Minimarket in Tokyo. Clear golden with a white head. Grainy aroma with notes of cooked vegetables and hints of sweet citrus and fruits. Fairly sweet with mild grainy flavours and a light bitterness. Rather standard industrial pale lager.

I don’t know what the soy protein can add to a plain pale lager like this. If frozen cold and you are at the beach on a hot day, as it was when I tried it, it’s drinkable.

Can in Macau. Sweetish-malty aroma. Fresh, hints of grain. Very watery, very clear. No aftertaste, easy to drink.

일본 티비에서 신나게 광고해대는 기린 발포주. 여행때는 맥주만 마시기도 벅차 포기한 장르이나, 체류중인지라 하나씩 시도하기로 한다. 생맥주스럽게 라이트하고 굵은 탄산감을 잘 구현했다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Cheapest tasting of the cheap. If you really must drink a daisan fake-beer, try any other brand.
