Bottle. Poured a light yellow with a substantial white head. Smelled like rice and urine. Tasted about the same. Slightly sweet with not much hop flavor. I gave into my fraternity brothers and decided to try sake bombing, which (slightly) improved the flavor.

In the bottle from the grocery store. Pale yellow in color, white head, but very fine bubbles. Not an over carbonated beast like many of this ilk. Aroma is faint- maybe a little sake-like rice, but not much of that. No hops anywhere to be found. Mildest of palates, you could be drinking rice water. I remember that the price of a pitcher of this stuff in Yokohama was around $25 US in a fancy-pants bar for tourists.

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Bottle. Poured out gold with a decent white head. Not much to the aroma, pretty dry. Palate is thin and a little watery. The flavor is medium malt with a very crisp dry finish. Not worth the import prices as it is really not much better than our own macros.

Had this one from an Asahi pilsener glass, been on a good run of getting the proper glassware at pubs. Another one of those beers that I really wanted to like. Amazingly pale color that just makes it look great. Light ricey smell, not much in the hop department. The light grainy taste comes in, politely bows and then leaves quickly, as if not wishing to offend, leaving a very dry, empty finish. AS a sessional beer, it really isnt that bad but in the grand scheme of beers, it isnt terribly good.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Beer #4 at the WBF in Durham. I can’t say that I was really impressed by this beer at all. But then again, it was the World Beer Festival. I assumed that I’d be drinking through a bunch of really crappy macros in order to get to the good stuff. Unfortunately Asahi is one of those crappy macros. I want to have faith in the beer of Japan, a country which I will be travelling to in the near future, but beers like Asahi, Kirin, and Sapporo, are more than a little discouraging.

Reid (2138) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Has a massive off white( eggshell) coloured head, even with a careful pour, regulation pale yellow/gold colour for the beer, livelly carbonation. Smell is fresh and not unpleasant, weak hops and quite grainy., Taste again is light with essense of grassy hop and some sweetness from the malts, not great but not horrid. At the start i sort of liked the dry mouthfeel but as this 633ml bottle went on it became less pleasurable and more annoying! Overall not a beer I would buy again, but its far from disgusting. Notes: This was brewed in Canada by Molson.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Pale gold colour with thin white head. Very mild grainy malt nose. Mild malt taste with dry grain notes and finish.

NachlamSie (3062) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2005
bottle. Pours ridiculously light. The smell is very artificial, like cleaning agents accompanied with some grains. Mostly just some corn in the flavor with some crisp hay. Better flavor than smell, that doesn’t say anything though.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours pale yellow with soapy white head. Smells skunky and a bit perfumy (in a bad way). Tastes like hay, rice, skunk, garbage water, and aspirin (which I will need after drinking this. Headache central). Gross.

I have a soft spot for this beer. By itself it is very weak, yet not watery, but not particularly good. When paired with food, especially Japanese food, this beer is absolutely fantastic. Salty foods and Asahi Super Dry are perfect together.
