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.

Pours a pale golden color with a white head. Aroma is malty, honey, rice, floral, and tiny hint of some peppery hops. Flavor is malty, rice, slightly floral, and just a hint of some peppery hops.

czlowiekwiadro (251) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2014
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

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2013
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.

futre7 (149) - Taipei, TAIWAN - AUG 15, 2013
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.

Ernest (6354) - 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), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Theis (13801) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
Can in train (Hida 11), going from Nagoya to Takayama. Clear golden – white head. Artificial, rice, soyabean, chestnut, metallic, aluminium, watery, synthetic, unpleasant bitter/sourness. Bad.
