Did not enjoy!!! Still, than most Asian beers. I had the Thai version, which may have made a difference.

A little more hops than I expected. Clear clean quickly thinning head. Washed down the chinese food rather well.

this is a damn decent tasting beer. i prefer the draft version to anything else, but out of the can or bottle is still not too bad. this is definetly on my top three maybe top two of japanese beers, but i also have some others in mind. defineltly goes well with food, but is still enjoyable by itself.

Negligible aroma, very light colour. No malt taste but slight bitterness. Light flavour & yes it is dry like club soda. May go well with spicy food. At least I can chalk up another country.

This beer is kind of yummy. From the glass it looks just like any other beer in its class, nothing special there and then you take a sip and it is almost as all the saliva in your mouth is gone, now that is a dry delivery. as the description say, a very crisp clean taste.

Pale yellow, pretty stable head, dry flavor with some acidity. Lively but fine carbonation. Refreshing.

One of the better tasting traditional Japanese beers that I'll often grab when enjoying sushi. Out of the 3 basics to be found in more restaurants - Asahi, Sapporo and Kirin - Asahi is, to my palette, the best of the three. While I dub it a Japanese beer, its is not a true Japanese beer but is more or less modeled after traditional Czech pilseners. Truth be told, Asahi is made in the Czech Republic for all markets in the world, except in the United States where it is brewed and bottled by Molson Breweries in Toronto, Canada. As for the beer itself, its clean and refreshing and works well with food. On its own, it isn't overly enjoyable, but its blend of hops and malts, with an emphasis on the hoppier side of things makes it a great accompaniment to some good food.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2003
Light gold with big white head, just what a lager should look like. Not much nose at all. Taste of a little malt, some floral hops, then bitter finish. No joy at all to the palate, just a lager. Initial impression is a well-made but generally uninteresting lager from another large factory and another large conglomerate. My first thought was that this is a pricey and classy alternative to Budweiser with an overpriced hotel Japanese dinner, but the beer gets a little better as it warms up, which the large bottles certainly will do.

Watery. Some malt. Very clear. Strange taste in finish. Not so bad.
