Tasting Notes:  This gold beer is named “ichiban” literally meaning “best” in Japanese.  Aromas of bread, cereal and fruit.  This medium bodied gold pale lager has a crisp, hoppy finish.  Also, it’s worth noting that if it’s available on tap, it’s worth checking out the tap handles which, if authentic, are  beautifully carved dragons.
