キリン 麦のごちそう. 発泡性 "For your happy home. A delicious, malty brew brings smiles to your table". A 12 oz. can into a pint glass. This was purchased and brought back from Japan.

A - Pours a perfectly clear straw yellow body with lots of rising carbonation. Small fingers worth of soapy bubbles form and dissipate quickly leaving behind a thin film. Decent amount of lacing with no real retention.

S - A cavalcade of adjuncts and slightly offensive aromas. Sweet corn and rice, cereal grain, and some soap. A slight skunky aroma stings the nose towards the end.

T - Sweet corn and some cereal grain. Has a slight skunky twang on the end but finishes dry and clean. Mouth feel is thin and well carbonated. Better than the aroma led me to believe.

O - I wouldn't say this is any worse or better than an American adjunct lager. Its just...different, slightly. It is a bit harsher and direct in its delivery of sweet corn and despite being canned it has some of those skunked notes found in clear and green bottled lagers. The finish is clean and drink ability is high. Happoshu, color me neutral!
