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.

i drink this on tap at my local sushi places as i find super hoppy or heavy craft beers dont mesh well with raw fish
had this on tap last night at hapa sushi in boulder co
on tap pint glass
looks is a pale gold small very white head
smell is yeasty and rice
taste is slight citrus bubbly and light easy to drink with a bit of a bitter aftertaste
excellent palate cleanser for eating raw fish and my go to when dining out for sushi
also low abv means i can down many of these and some sake and still be able to function
