Kirin Light

Torrance, California

Kirin Light is a Japanese-style pilsner import with a smooth, full-bodied and refreshing taste. Kirin Light has an enticing hop aroma and is brewed with the finest ingredients, including two-row barley malt and the finest Saaz hops imported from the Czech Republic. Kirin’s proprietary yeast strain is used along with a special “first press” brewing process, which extracts the most flavorful portion of the ingredients.

Kirin refers to a mythic beast, half dragon and half deer, from ancient Chinese mythology as a symbol of well-being and good fortune.
