Kirin Ichiban Beer (It’s not noodles?)

I had a good night’s rest after wandering through the Shilin Market in Taipei, then had a lazy morning before beer O’clock when I sampled a Kirin Ichiban Beer.
Yah, you know, you can get this stuff anywhere, but I figured I was pretty close to Japan, so I should try it here for a change.
It is a straw-gold brilliant colour, with a weak head (2/5).
The aroma intensity is a 3/5, apple, sweet, nice. (4/5 rating)
The flavour has an intensity of 3/5 with apple, grain and rice flavours. It is slightly sweet with a light body. The carbonation is a 2/5. The finish is a relatively short (2/5) and sweet with an intensity of 3/5.
The craftsmanship is a 4.9/5 and a 5/5 for freshness. My personal taste gives it a 4.6/5. Beer-rigato!
