The recipe has been changed!! Thatís 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 Kirinís long selling Nodogoshi It is a total let down. Bland as water. Itís a corporate mess like Yahoo. Move along now....nothing to enjoy at all.

aromat starego chmielu. kolor i piana typowe dla stylu. w smaku odrobinę bardziej goryczkowe niż inne japońskie lagery z koncernůw. nic specjalnego.

Lata de 33 cl, adquirida en un Lawson de Nagoya. Color dorado. Sabor a malta, muy suave. Una cerveza comercial.

Skunky smell. Tastes like a dirty straw/grain soda, mild grass hops, watery finish. Clear-ly a fail...

Not really sure if this is happoshu or a regular Japanese lager. Anyways, your typical piss yellow fizzy water with a white head of foam. The taste is grain, sweet and that is pretty much it. If you let it warm up, itíll get skunky. Drink it ice cold or not at all... which is probably the way to go.

Can from supermarket. Light molasses/extract nose, cabbage, and a touch of hop aroma. Quite pale, but not really a creamy head (despite the name and the claim on the labeling). Slight tartness and some fruitiness in the initial / touch of cardboard and insect spray in mid / light fizzy final and then nothing. Thin-medium palate. Asahi, yeah okay. Not as bad as many. But not much there (thankfully, I suppose).

Can from a Lawson store. Pale golden colour with a white head. Mild malt aroma. Very weak flavour that with some imagination can be considered malt. A meh beer.

December 21st, 2010 - Hot on the heels of my last happoshu review comes a hap offering from Asahi - the Asahi Clear. One thing you canít fault Japanís large breweries for is tricking their consumers. All the happoshu beers look different. As an example, the Asahi Clear does not sound like a delicious, full bodied beer, but a wan, dehydrated beer, alive but for the gracious assistance of life support and a lot of prayer. And really, thatís what these semi-beers taste like when compared to the Belgian and American brews common to my home country. The Clear Asahi is just about the same as others in its class - a lighter palate than pale lagers, a slightly sweet vegetable touch, but a poor substitute for even the standard silver bullet Asahi pale lagers.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Can (rated Apr 2008). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), trace hops (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
