3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good good everyday beer if it would range in a more affordable price range. Nonetheless a good Asian lager, refreshing but with bits of refined notes now and there. Sweet and malty, soild amber colour, and a nice aroma for a warm afternoon of winter. Better than its regular asahi sister.

Bottle. Pours amber color with small foamy beige head, very faint caramel aroma, high carbonation, very little caramel taste with a metallic tint, medium finish. Not a very inspiring beer.

"bleh. notas good as the black. not even close. typical slightly-better-than-the-crap swill. no redeeming qualities, really, just not as foul as many of them."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber. Small off white head. Mild sweet malty taste. Mild caramel aroma. Nothing wrong with it, just not really much there.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A Japanese restaurant on St. Mark’s: Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma was basically grainy with a little bit of hops and sugar. Taste is like a slightly more heavy pale lager. I was expecting something more in Vienna land. Anyway, it was fine, but underwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Asahi Brewmaster’s Select has a thin, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, amber appearance, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bready malt, and the flavor is of sweetness, bread crust, cooked carrots, and a slight bittereness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Asahi Brewmaster’s Select finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and highly chug-able. Overall, this is worth checking out, but it is over-priced ($11.99 for a six-pack). RJT

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with a copper red tint with a slight hazy hue. Minimal to no head. Palate is nice but the beer does not provide flavorful depth or dimension. Taste is malty with a slight tart honey caramel finish.

I love amber beers, may it be lagers or ales. Low foam with a medium body, full of roasted malt flavor combining very well its color (brownish red). Its aroma is also roasty with traces of caramel. One of my favorites from Japan.
