Product description

Beautiful golden color with notes of European aroma hops and a silky, smooth taste with a balanced hop finish. Ichiban means "number one", a fitting name for our beer, which uses only the first-press of the wort. First press brewing is able to extract a higher concentration of flavor to create a distinctly crisp, smooth and full-bodied beer. With only 95 calories per 12 fl. oz. serving, and a surprisingly full-bodied taste, Kirin Light is one of the world's finest light beers. Pairs well with sushi or seafood.

FAQs

Light beer is a beer (usually, but not always, a pale lager) that has lower calories and alcohol than typical beer. The drop in calories often means light beers have a "lighter" taste as well, but they can be great session beers if you're planning to have more than one.
Some beer snobs will tell you light beers taste like beer-flavored water. It is true that by cutting the calories, you're significantly reducing (or eliminating) things like hops or yeast that bring flavor.
Most light beers have a significantly low alcohol content, with some going as low as 1-2% ABV, but typically 3% - 4%. Compare this with most comparable "regular" beers, which fall in the range of 4% - 5% ABV.
