More of these than I can count. IN fact anything Asahi made up till early 2003 I have had. This is mediocre, it is not as good as Ichiban, Asahi does better but not out side this style. If you read the comments you will realise it is all over the place. They do not announce this but they will change a recipe and not the can just to see the reaction - brand is more important than content. This is a session beer. I know. I counted the cans in the nearby trash receptacles next to the park down by Shimbashi station. People drink it because it is low alcohol.

Clear golden coloured body with a touch of a pale white head, not much though. Aroma of grass, light malt, rice and a hint of alcohol. Very light-bodied; Sweet rice flavour with hints of mangoes and apples at first that give way to a very smooth and elegant malt note with no bitterness or funk at all. Aftertaste shows some subdued sweetness and a few hints of malt, but aside from that, a very smooth finish. Overall, a surprisingly nice and very easy drinking pale lager - nice with this heat of Asia! I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from 7-11 at Ngong Ping Village in Lantau, Hong Kong on 03-July-2014 for HK$11,00 sampled in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 04-July-2014.

Bottle at Mt Fuji. No aroma to speak of. Typical light lager but with a dry finish. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt, grass and a bit of yeast. Taste is just a basic beer, malt and not much else.

Sampled twice today at two different ramen shops in Hong Kong. Nice creamy head and yellow body, okay malt aroma. Very refreshing, and obviously it goes well with Ramen. Malty notes and a semi-crisp finish with some refreshing water notes. Works well with the food, probably would work well as a session beer.
