Kirin Ichiban ~ Kirin Brewing Company

Appearance: typical lager straw hues under a white head which fades into a thin head, slightly thicker along the sides. Swirls average.

Nose: grass and grains. Lemon peel. Key lime peel in the back. Golden sundried raisins. Sun-baked grains.

Palate: typically clean with lemon peel and lime in the middle while grains mingle about. Rather dry. Finish with just a touch of citric peel atop the tongue. Dry sweet bread crusts along sides.

Final Thoughts: it’s alright. Not horrible but not great either. For me it’s all about the nostalgia and the massive amount of sushi I have enjoyed with this beer…until I discovered really good cold sake.
