3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at a sushi bar on the road and was surprised by it. Not much to look at, but a surprising hoppy bite and whaddaya know...it actually IS "fresh, crisp and clear" as advertised. Went quite well with the soy and wasabi of japanese cuisine. I suppose all the low ratings this beer has received are from people who simply don’t like pale lagers.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Super thin-watery pour and appearance; quickly dissipating thin white head. Piss-yellow. The coolest thing about this beer was that I could read the Katakana memo on the label: "Asahi Birru". I gave it a 4 on appearance just for that! Other than that, it’s a skunkfest and not even a good skunkfest. Slight wheatiness. Unrealistically thin mouthfeel. I feel like I could chug these all day and not feel anything!

only beer you can drink in a sushi bar, its an average lager, barely any type of aroma, good only for sake bombs...light goldish hue, small off white head. not a horrible beer. its OK.

Thin in both flavor and palate. Aroma is very light. All in all a disapointing beer.

Very pale golden colour with a quickly disappearing white head. Malty and grassy/floral aroma. A slight sweetness on the front with a clean finish. Very typical.

My bottle was flat, dry, and moldy flavored, with unpleasant rice overtones and no finish. I did not enjoy this at all.
