The recipe has been changed!! That’s official!! So...so sad! When first released this low malt beer was an instant success story NO JOKE! Great hop bite, wet and clean. It has now joined the ranks of wet cardboard and ...."Who cares??" Just pathetic.....obviously an attempt to rival Kirin’s long selling Nodogoshi It is a total let down. Bland as water. It’s a corporate mess like Yahoo. Move along now....nothing to enjoy at all.

500 ml can bought at 7-Eleven on Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Piss golden yellow colour; One and a quarter finger head with soapy white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of moderate malt, with floral, sugar, grain spirit, dry biscuits, light lemon and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of very light malt, strong barley grains and spirit, light floral, soda, molasses, dry bread, lemon, moderate bitter hops and light grass; Mid to light body. Thin and dry palate; Mouth feel is very thin malt in a thin body. Strong grainy spirit dominates for a dry, biscuity feel. Minimal characters otherwise, with low floral and light sweetness. Light lemon to round. Okay… Hoppiness is with floral, light lemon and light grass in nose and taste; Bitteness is light to moderate for a lasting, fairly light astringent dry grainy finish; Quite dry after taste. Pretty easy to mouth.

Comments: So this is the first of Asahi’s Clear series, and as a Happoshu this is not bad after all: no pissy smell, no awful chemicals or sweetness, just grainy alcohol taste in slight excess. Thre’s some fair light touches of floral hoppiness to top. Not quality stuff, but drinkable.

visionthing (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2016
35cl can from a nearby Family Mart in Tokyo. Pours clear golden with a modest white head. Mild grainy aroma with just a hint of fruits and possibly honey. Sweet, watery and not much flavour or bitterness to speak of. Close to sparkling water.

A pale golden beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and hay, leading to a bitter finish.

Drank from a can. A lager with a beer light taste. There is some faint hints of malts and even fainter hints of hops.

350 ml can, thanks to Ingo! Sampled on April 7, 2015.
BB 2015.11.
Clear golden color, big white head at first, dies down fast though, some lacing. Light fruity estery scent, some pear and golden apples. Cream, light fruity taste. Fruity aftertaste, also a bit stale. Weak mouthfeel, rather low CO2. Low bitterness.

willisread (2471) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2015
This isn’t even real beer. Pale yellow. White head. No real aromas to speak of. Taste is rice with a slight amount of graininess. Avoid at all costs (even if handed to you).
