Yellow, big white head. Only moderately vile. While being sickening sweet, it still has some bitterness to round it out. Carbs carry it along but leave too quickly. Not really dry at all.

Sample- 355 ML- Golden straw colour. Super white head that didn't last long. No peculiar smells, but no pleasant ones either. Light carbonation, along with a super "light beer" type of taste. Overall, it was very refreshing, and went down easy. Good on a hot day when you just want refreshment.

Had this at a Japanese restaurant with sushi. It was served way too cold - which perhaps was not a bad thing - the pale-gold beer was dry to a fault. All in all, a boring clean beer.

Either dry to the point of desiccating your palate, or a burst of freshness, taste depending.

Tastes like a skunked bottle of Bud. Was just plain gross to me, but it kills the sashimi taste.

bottled: with the sushi food again. nothing too exciting to report here. pretty much your typical asian style pilsener with rice adjunct flavor, slightly bitter and skunky, good with spicy food and on a hot day. crisp clean and DRY. for some reason i usually drink sapporo over this??

Golden yellow colour. It is dry and, no doubt OK as a thirst quencher on a hot summer's day. Unfortuantely it is a rather cold winter day here. Alternatively, I suspect, intended as a "designer" beer for poseurs who value style over substance.The rice and hop adjuncts introduce an underlying tang that compromises the cleanness. Otherwise, quite thin and boring stuff. Mine was produced in the Czech Republic & this seems to be the only Asahi beer imported into the UK. Bottled.

Very clean and refreshing. A great thirstquencher. Not as watery as expected.

Looks an almost hazy yellow. Minimal aroma, but fresh, aley hints of hops.
It almost tastes like beer. Weaker, though, and sweetish. Is this supposed to be dry?
