Can. I congratulate tha Japanese Asahi division. They truly succeeded in creating a true industrial macro eurobeer. Tasteless with only hints of corn, sweetish extracty syrup. Drinkable at least.

A good happoshu low-malt beer, very easy to drink due to the light taste and slick palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden coloured body with a touch of a ribbony white head. Aroma of rice and lemons with very little else. Light-bodied; Sharp flavour of rice, light malt, alcohol and a hint of lemons with very little else and no bitterness nor harsh flavours. Aftertaste shows some more of the malt, a hint of the grass and lemons and some very light sweet notes - not much else though. Overall, a surprisingly nice and refreshing beer with not much signs of the alcohol, even given the 5+% abv! I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from City’Super in Harbour City, Kowloon, Hong Kong on 03-July-2014 for HK$10,50 sampled in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 04-July-2014.

500 ml can as “Asahi Honnama Draft” bought at 7-Eleven in Metropolis Plaza, Sheung Shui.
Piss pale golden yellow colour; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and notable small carbonation; Slightly pungent and very sweet smell of light malt, with rice, corn syrup, light wet cardboard, light bread, very light lemon and smelly grass; Close to light sweet taste of thin malt, with rice, very light wet cardboard, syrupy notes, soda water, light bread, thin lemon, light bitter hops and notable light grass; Light body. watery palate; Mouth feel is watery happoshu with more tastes - tastable light maltyness despite and near-water body and feel, fairly low rice adjuncts and sugar notes. Quite bready and hoppy, which are unusual for a Happoshu. Not bad!... Hoppiness is light lemon and smelly light grass in nose, thin citrus and pretty sharp light grass in taste. Bitterness is fairly light but very notable for a lasting, but very low-fi finish; Fairly dry after taste. Quite crisp and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: Thought this gonna be crap, and it turns out to be a quite decent Happoshu. It’s still watery, but has notably better maltyness, bread and almost tasty hoppiness. The best of all being very few off tastes barring some thin initial cardboards. Not too shabby and quite drinkable, especially in hot Summer right now.
