Full point taken off of appearance due to deceptive naming of this product. The Japanese word "shiro" means "white" in English. There is nothing white about this beer except for its head, which disappears faster than you can say spittle.

A - Clinging pure white head on a pull yellow body.
S - barely perceptible aroma, fresh, grain husks
T - Mild grain flavor with no bitterness
M - Ligh bodied and light carbonation for the style.
D - Refreshing, light and highly drinkable.

3.13/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, gold brew with a foamy white head. Vigorous carbonation flow.

Smell: A bit skunky on top of malt and subdued hops.

Taste: Mild malt flavor. There is a bit of a nutty flavor in the background. Not a very big departure from standard Kirin.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body. Has a waxy quality.

Drinkablity: A serviceable brew. Hard to place as a beer designed for and marketed in the winter season.
