This one got me through some tough times in the land of the rising sun. Doesnít need to be said, but it tastes much better over there than in the States. Pours a pale yellow, not much of a discernable scent, slight lacing. Flavor is smooth with, as to be expected, a dry finish. Perfect for sushi and edemame.

There is very little aroma except for some grain. The color is a very pale golden with a white head some slight lacing. The flavor is grainy with a dry light finish to the palate.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts and rice. Flavor is sweet malts, grain, smooth, and rice.

Bottled. Pale golden with a small white head. Unpleasant aroma with malt, rice and some sweetness. The flavor is mostly rice-like, with some floral hop notes. Thin body. Hope to get a chance to re-rate it some day, I donít remember this beer to be this poor. (060413)

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Golden Pour. Thin bubbly head. Nose is all incredibly clean, wiped of all traces of beer smell. Malts are a razors edge. Acrid carbonation. Very carbony smelling. No hops...zero. Flavors taste as clean as a hospital in a very awful way. Sparkly carbonation. Awful. Truly.

Typical watery Asian lager, but excellent with sushi! I was drinking it like soda! Crisp and refreshing after-taste. It makes you want to drink more.I guess Asian lagers go well with food...Recommended with food.

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

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.
