Hey! A decent beer in Japan! Whaddaya know! Nothing spectacular might I add, just has some above average hop flavor and comes close to a pretty decent pils. I wish this was easier to find.

A new 90 day shelf-life chilled beer by Asahi. The can looks quite fancy and it looks nice in the glass as well. A deep golden color with a small white head. Some dried grass and hops in the nose. A tasty pils , reminds me of a Bohemian pils, a mellow, rich (for a Japanese Macro) flavor with some sweetness. An easy drinking beer, right on time with the warmer weather just around the corner. Just became one of my favorite Asahi brews! Look for this one if you visit, I don’t think it will ship well.
