Lata. Clear yellow like. Aroma is mild, hoppish maltish some alc. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour of mild malt and grassy hops with alc. below medium bitterness.

Can from Lawson. Next to no aroma, but mildly surprised by the half-decent body and middling mouthfeel. The tiniest of upgrades on the Clear Asahi monstrosity, it has a faint tang of hops over the standard daisan beer mix of veggies and metho. Not a prime beer by any stretch of the imagination.

Cold and fizzy. Absolutely nothing else. Refreshing on a hot afternoon, but devoid of any flavour or character.

Poured the head and then saw it disappear. Wait for it to settle as the iron taste was strong at first. After that itís decent, nothing special, no taste of note apart from a bit wheaty

Clear golden color small white head. Sweet malty corn-like aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Sweet malty, fruity flavor. Better than most "Clear" beers are it has more alcohol which gives at least some tolerable sweet fruityness over the normal mineral water.

500 ml can bought at 7-Eleven in Metropolis Plaza, Sheung Shui.

Light golden honey colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which faeds in 40 seconds; Small sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Light aroma of malt, with very thin floral, light syrup, white bread, light lemon and grass; Close to light sweet taste of malt, with strong grains, bread, light biscuits, light lemon and very light grass;Close to light body. Dry, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is a thinned Premium Lager. Maltyness is pretty good and notably bready. Initially grainy from the barley adjunct, minimal sweetness, lemony, dry and no off-taste. The 6% booze is very well hidden. This is pretty good!... Hoppiness is light lemon and light grass in nose and taste. Background low-fi bitterness for an abrupt semi-finish; Dry after taste. Very easy and quite crisp to mouth.

Comments: As much as I love to bash big boys like Asahi, I have to admit they acquit themselves pretty well with this one: a pretty okay brew that went beyond Pale Lager and without the typical bad booze and sweetness of Strong Pale. A thin-body Premium Lager thatís very easy to go down with no foul smell or off-taste whatsoever. Another rare bright spot from an otherwise stark world of Happoshu. Worth a try!

Dry straw aroma. Sweet malt, biscuit, mild plum, sweet alcohol finish. Not the worst Asahi brew, quite drinkable apart from the strong aftertaste.

Id love to know what constitutes clear? Perhaps it means the head dissipates quickly...which it does. Overall tho not a bad beer. A bit watery and a slight cardboard taste with light corn and white bread. But for me the over-riding taste was liquorice. It isnít too gassy however and goes down well. Trouble is at 6% you might feel it in the morning.
