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.

Kirin Light (3.2% alcohol by weight) has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and not a whole lot of lacing left behind on the sides of the glass. The aroma is faint, but one does detect sweet grains and some malt. Taste is of sweet barley malt, standard beer flavor, some mineral water notes, and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Kirin Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, for a beer, it is good, and for a light beer it is most excellent. No off smell or tastes, whatsoever.
