The cousin of Kirin Ichiban, but not quite as good...funny though: Ichiban was brewed in Canada by Molson; this was actually brewed in Japan, and brought back (in cans) by a friend who visited. The Canadian one was better. It had kind of a bland taste, but I believe it's quite high in alcohol, as I'm writing this soon after drinking, and my spell check will definitely get used. OK, I just deciphered the Japanese label...it's 6% alcohol. Wow. So, to sum it up, it's rocket fuel, but it's also mediocre. Buy American.
