eduardovl (961) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. Czech version. A: Pours a golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled fluffy white head. Medium retention and some spotty lacings left S: Sweet and grainy followed by Lager yeasts and Saaz hops T: Follows the nose. Sweet grains upfront. Sweet malts, corn, adjunct malts, Lager yeasts and a considerable citrus bitter end. In overall, a dry taste which is also very grainy. Hop bitterness reminds Saaz and is not bad M: Light body. Smooth texture. Good carbonation. Grainy and bitter aftertaste O: Refreshing with an average drinkability, after all. At the same time, the taste of adjunct malts is a little bit overwhelming [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]

RafeAU (197) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Chinese made under license. Very different to the japanese asahi these really should be separate beer ratings. anyway this one was okay, decent lager malt flavours but pretty unexciting.

Drank it in Australia. Quite good. Nothing to call home about. Would drink it again if offered. Not sure if I’d buy it

Asahi brewed in the UK is horrible. Heineken realised this... I only drink Asahi now if I can get the Imported bottles.
