Kirin Ichiban (330ml Bottle)
Note: This Beer is Brewed under Licence in Australia. Kirin Ichiban is a highly refreshing premium beer, crafted to exacting Japanese standards. The special first press method produces pure smooth flavours and the pale amber shine, crowned with a rich creamy head. Noble hops create an appetizing floral aroma, complemented by a delicate fruity character. The full-bodied palate has a subtle sweetness punctuated by mild bitter notes.
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or youll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
