Kirin Ichiban

Not bad. Pretty much a standard macro look, but better than average taste and drinkability. I don’t smell much, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, at least I’m not getting an overpowering alcohol or grain whiff.

Pours with a slightly better than average head and retention and goes down quite smooth. Golden in the glass with a clarity about it. Malts mainly dominate, but I don’t know that this looks or tastes much like a Pale Ale as the database suggests. Looks more like a pale lager to me and has all the hallmarks of that brew.

Probably wouldn’t bother with again, but not offensive so would certainly drink in the absense of alternatives.
