JorgeLee (1180) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
On tap in a bar in Tokyo. Reckon I’d struggle to tell this apart from any other unmemorable glass of tasteless Asahi. The best I can really say is that it isn’t unpleasant.

Westkyoto77 (518) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 29, 2013
Draught. Bright gold, thick creamy head. Aromas of grass, thin spice, paper. No character whatsoever- perhaps created to rival Heartland in the "non-intrusive beer to pair with quality food" category. But gassier than Heartland, and not as flavorful. Looks classy, but as with many things in Japanese society, appearances can be deceptive.

CH-303 (1391) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Appearance: Yellow, clear. Little head. Aroma: Some light fruit, hops and malt. Taste: Nice, refreshing hops and malt. Nothing special, really. Info: 500ml bottle, 9/6-2013

AndySnow (3144) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2013
Draught at American Grill Park Hyatt, Tokyo. Clear golden colour with a white head. Weak hops, malt aroma. Weak malt flavour.

jonno (2291) - JAPAN - DEC 12, 2012
Asahi do the plain, ’barely there’ thing better than anyone else. Soft, watery, light on flavour, made for drinking with high class food, when the beer is all but an accompaniment much like a glass of water.

dalekliz (874) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Can. Pours a clear gold with a bubbly white head. Aroma is crisp and yeasty, with malt, grass, and a hint of citrus. Taste of grassy yeast, malt, and a hint of hops. Lingering sharpness that fades. Decent.

maekchu (2097) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2012
Can. Grassy. Sweet, and bit full in the malt profile for this style. Clear, golden yellow, Lazy carbonation. Grassy flavors, some cereal, metallic, with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body. Not bad and not great.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Can (rated Apr 2008). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

jgb9348 (4718) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Very clear golden coloured body with a very dense, thick off-white head and some small, yet very slow moving bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of apples, rice, malt, cardboard and some odd airy smells. Medium-bodied; Nice fresh and strong malt flavour with a hint of alcohol at the end and some rather assertive (for japanese) hop notes also. Aftertaste shows some fruity qualities with pears and apples definitely showing up. Overall, a surprisingly decent beer with some complexity for the style, but even better - defined malt flavours and some fruit and light hop tastes. I sampled this 350 mL can (very nice quality can, as well, glossy all over) purchased from GS25 in Seoul (Myendong), South Korea on 23-August-2010 sampled at home on the other side of the planet in Washington on 28-November-2011.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 21, 2011
Can. Old rating found with my Japan trip notes. Light amber. Grainy sweet malt on the nose and in the mouth. Dry.
