3.1/5  rDev +39%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with an airy, well-sized, white head.

Smell: It's a pretty mild aroma at best, with only some light, clean notes of barley and spicy hops.

Taste: A thin, light taste of malted barley marked by a faint degree of sweetness and lightly spicy hops with a complimentary bitterness. Clean, crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. A tad watery.

Drinkability: A light beer, of course, but one that's at least clean-tasting and fairly refreshing. There's a lot of true horrors in the land of lagers, but, thankfully, this wasn't of them.

Serving type: bottle

Ok, well, Raul sat down to sushi and the waitress just put a Kirin Light in front of him without asking. Ok. Hmm...

Like my last relationship, this thang is transparent. Like, I can see right through it and see all the bullshit. Taste? Smell? Where?

Goes down easy, but so do a lot of things.
