2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Manggha in Krakow. Little head, goes off completely. Odd flavour, slightly acidic, sweet and with strong corn notes. Less hoppy than european lagers. Nothing extraordinary, but drank kinda well to sushi. (Note that my bottle read that it was brewed in Czech Republic; the Japanese original may be different)

In comparison to Sapporo, this is very good. My friend was having a Yeuling at the time and he said it tasted just like the Yeuling except the Asahi is extremely light in color. I disagree with the taste but I’d order it again with a hibachi meal. Very decent.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is of one the more unremarkable beers I’ve tried in awhile. Very smooth, dry, and plain. Virtually no taste, but at least it easy to drink.

grassy, flowery aroma. Pours a light yellow, white head. Pretty standard restaurant beer. Grassy taste, dry finish. Japanese Bud.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Neutral aroma and the flavour has notes of hops and flower as the initial impression. It’s bitterness is OK and it is a refreshing beer. (Early rating, too short)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from 1 Liter can, poured out. The beer was a lighter gold, see-through color with a medium white head, that hung around a little bit. Aroma was mostly of grainy hops/slight malts, but nothing stood out. The beer was wet to drink, but had a dry finish. The flavor was a mix of medium bitterness with a slight sour taste too. Not a bad Japanese beer, but not one that I will remember too fondly either.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Solid, if unspectacular session lager, doesn’t stand up to suntory malts, yebisu or kirin, but perhaps on par with sapporo

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold color, with a fully diminishing head. Faint, bread dough aroma that I wish was a bit stronger. No pronounced malt or hop flavors, but a nice level of carbonation. Extremely non-offensive, and very drinkable. Would be a nice substitute for water with any meal.
