I like imports. They make me feel multicultural. This is pretty much my favorite.
I like Kirin Ichiban a lot too.

Pours golden with a rapidly dissipating head.

Smell of adjunct, rice, grain, malts.

Taste is nicely balanced with a distinct bitterness on the finish and a nice bread aftertaste. Vegetable and malt make up most of the body.

Crisp and clean with a nice snap for the feel.

Drinks smooth and goes well with Japanese cuisine. Wish i would have ordered a taller one.

Drank this on tap at the local sushi bar, first time trying, probably the last. Very lifeless beer, nothing memorable outside of the fact that is a beer.
