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)

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.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2007
grassy, flowery aroma. Pours a light yellow, white head. Pretty standard restaurant beer. Grassy taste, dry finish. Japanese Bud.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
Neutral aroma and the flavour has notes of hops and flower as the initial impression. It’s bitterness is OK and it is a refreshing beer. (Early rating, too short)

Derek881 (1247) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Sampled from 1 Liter can, poured out. The beer was a lighter gold, see-through color with a medium white head, that hung around a little bit. Aroma was mostly of grainy hops/slight malts, but nothing stood out. The beer was wet to drink, but had a dry finish. The flavor was a mix of medium bitterness with a slight sour taste too. Not a bad Japanese beer, but not one that I will remember too fondly either.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is malt and rice. Flavor is the same and pleasantly dry. I can easily drink alot of this beer.

Bottle. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of malt anf hops.

Solid, if unspectacular session lager, doesn’t stand up to suntory malts, yebisu or kirin, but perhaps on par with sapporo
