I used to enjoy Kirin, Sapparo and Asahi beer here in L.A. at a premium price.
Then, a few years ago the taste changed for the worse.
These beers are now made in the USA or Canada under license.
They still charge a premium price as if they were still imported from Japan.
What a rip off.!

Totally agree with Sparky. Here in Canada, Sapporo is brewed under license but, in restaurants, you pay through the nose for a large can. :scratch:

In Japan, I particularly enjoyed Yebisu as well as the seasonal specialty beers each brewery makes that you find in the grocery stores.

Orion is my choice.

You can sometimes find a variety of Kirin brewed in Japan still, around LA at least.

I've not found beer coming out of Japan for a while. They label it imported since it's coming out of Canada, but it's definitely not the same. The best beers (and sake for that matter), like the best electronics, never leave Japan unless you carry them out in your luggage.

Hai! Kanpai!
Have to go with Orion.
Best as a fresh draft, though.

Word! Orion is pimp.

Of course, when I was back in the states, I really wouldn't grab Japanese brand beer as it was just brewed somewhere in the states.

But... I love this one beer brewery not to far from my place... they have a great restaurant as well.

Kirin Ichiban is my favorite of all the Japanese Beers Asahi would be the least.

Though I’m only 19, my parents let me drink (wihin the household)。I am not a heavy drinker - very casual and only drink to a peak, not until im drunk. I like Kirin and Suntory brands, as those are the only ones I’ve been drinking, I tend to stay away from domestic beer, unless thats all that is available.

The ones brewed in Japan are the best tasting. Unfortunately locally (outside Japan) brewed beer is not the same taste nor quality.

Kirin Ichiban I believe is still brewed in Japan. That was nice.

The most memorable beer was a Suntory I had in a Shinjuku Izakaya. That was exceptional.

This is so true. If anybody is lucky enough to visit Tokyo I can recommend Bakusyu Club Popeye near the Ryogoku JR station. It has about 30-40 Japanese beers on tap of every imagable type, the Yona Yona beers where espically good. The two times I went there I was made to feel very welcome despite speaking no Japanese.

I also visited the Yebisu Beer Museum in Ebisu, it isn't very big, but the Magical Theatre Show involving the King of Beer and the Beer Fairy has to be seen to be believed.
