1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from ... somewhere. Light extract, molasses nose. Pale straw, really frisky carbonation (kinda unnatural and scary. actually). Flavors is basically thin extract in carbonated water, not much hop presence at all. Thin-medium body, crisp. Really, this is lightly beer-flavored club soda. Not really offensive... and not not.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
ubogi ale czysty aromat słodowy. kolor jasnego złota ze słabą pianą. w smaku woda, ale z dość wyraźną (choć niską) goryczką. lekko kwaskowy posmak. odrobinę lepsze od zwykłego koncerniaka japońskiego

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Foamy , light and sweet with an artificial taste consisting of cardboard , bubblegum and vegetables. It may be low in sugar but it is also low in beer taste. I can see why people would want to drink this but there are better low calorie beers out there. Namely Asahi style free. The can looks cool tho.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Extremely watrery. The closest thing Japan has to an American style lite beer. Stick with its red Honnama brother if really want to drink Asahi happoshu.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2011 350ml can at Tokyo vending machine, 250Y. This Happoshu is not beer, this is water with a bit of beer aftertaste. Not bad as a soft drink itself, but not beer. Aroma almost inexistent, bug bubbles white head, taste of cereals but subtle, dirty, acidic. Watery body.
