3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straw colour. Clean, fresh grain aroma with soft noble hops. Flavour is the same - clean, light bready pale malt character, sweet, with a lightly spicy noble hop finish. Body is moderate for style and carbonation light. Refreshing, an excellent example of a pale lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this from a yellow-gold coloured can bought from a convenience store in Tokyo. Clear-pale yellow with a white, quickly disappearing head. Hoppy aroma with a stronger hop and malt taste than "Super Dry". If you like the regular Asahi but are looking for more flavour, here it is.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biggish white head does not last. Pale yellow body. Faint malt aroma. Dry grainy taste with grassy hop notes. Exceptionally clean palate. Dry, papery aftertaste. Men of science worked hard to remove all taste from this beer, and they did a great job. (0.334l bottle.)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ichidai in PDX--Poured a clear straw golden body with a minimal white head. Crisp, pissy, generic Pilsner nose. It was no surprise to find out that this beer was under contract by Molsen of Canada. Not a bad beer, just far from boring.

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.
