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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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 don’t remember this beer to be this poor. (060413)

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
