(12oz bottle. 03/2006). I periodically drink Asahi. It isn’t terrible. Some aromas of riciness and earth on the nose. A fizzy, quick-dissipating white head and, frankly, unappealingly pale, straw yellow appearance. Flavor isn’t overly grainy and is relatively crisp and hoppy -- yes, hoppy. Relatively dry finish. Not terrible.

KUEric (889) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 12 oz bottle: I actually liked the stuff. Pours a very nice golden color with minimal head, and carbonation lacing. The aroma is also minimal, but the taste is bitter, hoppy, dry, crisp, clean, with a bite of flavor. Not complex and not a beer snobs beer, but much much better than the American big boys.

Bottle 05/07/2004 Golden coloured smooth on the palate and hoppy. Slightly dry malt finish.

Beer5000 (5062) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle. Golden pale body with short white head. Some malt flavour and little bitterness. A dry lager with short aftertaste. Quite ordinary, but definitively drinkable.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 Both bottle and tap (basically the same). Pours light yellow with a medium head that quickly dissipates. Fairly strong initial floral scent, although that dissipates with the head. Taste is rather nondescript. It actually is quite dry, oddly enough, which makes it lack the off-taste sweetness of many pale lagers. Not particularly exciting, but if you find yourself having to drink a macrobrew from Japan, this is probably the best choice.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2006
Medium-gold appearance with a nice, clean, balanced lager aroma. Flavour is a little watery, leading to a slightly bitter hop finish. Blatantly average.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Shared bottle with and from rickgordon, thanks
Light yellow color. Dominant malty scent. Malty taste with low bitterness. Higher body than expected.

The best thing about this one, is that it is in fact a bit dry. This means that the flavour isn’t as damn sweet as most pale lager. Otherwise, it just sticks to the same old formula. Why did I bother...

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, pretty rich head. Apart from diacetyl in aroma, I found roasty notes and even hints of chocolate. Butterscotch is pretty dominant in flavour but the bitterness was not to be found. Very clean pale lager - I took it for a pilsner. Mouthfeel was almost medium. But then I sampled homebrewed bitters just before.

Sweet hop malt aroma. Clear amber colour with poor head and lacing. Sweet malt flavour. Flat palate.
