From a can poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

350ml Can from Family Mart, Tokyo (¥138):

Terrible stuff from Kirin here & a beer that I will definitely not be returning to in future, it was quite a weak & poorly balanced beer with the taste a massive step down from an already poor aroma. There wasn't much of anything going on really, save for some basic corn & citrus flavours which made it one-dimensional & not very enjoyable; one of the worst I tried in Japan.

This is an ultra-light beer. It tastes like it. Very little aroma. Unpleasant flavor.

1.2
Iznogud (4485) - CROATIA - AUG 13, 2016
Canned, 330 ml from supermarket in Kyoto. Pours clear golden, small diminishing white head. Malty, grainy, vague citrus note, sweetish. Watery. Barely drinkable.

Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Can. Aroma is grainy. This is fizzy, very light in body, no hops, Things go south fast when Japanese brewers start adding adjuncts.

hawthorne00 (4142) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2016
Can. Pale gold with a fading white head. Aroma of dry corn husks, caramel, cooked vegies. Watery. Highish carbonation works OK. Mercifully not all that sweet. Fairly empty with apple puree and cardboard. Enough bitterness and it’s dry enough that it leaves nothing unpleasant. Dreck.

willisread (3695) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2016
Can from Family Mart. Thin and watery. Some malt but not much. No real offensive flavors, but not much flavor to speak of. Meh.

2.1
visionthing (5554) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
33cl can from Family Mart enjoyed at a hotel in Nagoya after hiking in the mountains. Pours pale golden with a modest, but lasting, white head. Mild grainy aroma with some grassy notes, hints of vegetables and metal. Moderate sweet, not much flavour, but a certain bitterness in the end. Rather watery and bland, but still somewhat refreshing given the right circumstances.

2.4
Ungstrup (38582) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
A yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and rice, leading to a dry finish.

1.7
