imdownthepub (12812) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Yellow gold with fizzed white head. Extra marks for not being ovecarbonated, this is a dry, thinnish but with the benefits of being malty with no adjuncts, one of the better pale lagers. Beats the rice brewers hands down.

DarkMagus (499) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Convenient 135ml can. Monstrous foamy artificially-induced head. Pale yellow color. The aroma is that of a typical pale lager. Reminds me of being a kid and catching a whiff of whatever my grandfather was drinking. Flavors are pale lager-ish: corn, rice, a bit of hops. Very light and watery body. The finish was, in fact, quite dry. Though not in the usual hoppy/astringent sense... more of a watery, nothing-to-it kind of sense. Easy to chug and/or funnel.

From bottle poured yellow with very little head. Nose of rice. Flavor is very mild and there is a touch of hops. Very bland.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
] Pours clear light gold, quite effervescent. A half inch of acid white head gives way to just a few persistant bubbles here and there. A little bready in the aroma, but more like a store-bought white bread than a hearty homemade wheat. The taste is pretty mild but still flavorful with a little sweet and bready malt and a hint of floral hops. The finish is very dry, which the fizzy carbonation compliments quite well. It tasted very fresh, clean, and pure - no adjunct flavors whatsoever. Definately a walk on the mild side.

Stupid sushi restaurants never have good beer. This one is watery, and a bit ricey. Completely forgettable macro stuff.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - JAN 5, 2007
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)

SirSlarty (68) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2007
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.

chrisok (77) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 3, 2007
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.
