Asahi has been the number1 beer in Japan for a number of years as it was designed to be a dinner beer. It is in fact a great dinner beer and goes very well with food as it does not impart any after tastes. Nice hops and very dry. As a casual beer or hiking beverage I would say don’t do it, it’s not appropriate. A bit expensive for what it is, but again as a dinner beer and holiday beer, it’s always present.

MarkoNm (1508) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a big frothy white head that vanishes soon. Malty aroma with some grainy notes in there. Taste starts lightly sweet, a bit grassy in the body with mild bitterness. Not unpleasant, drinkable when ice cold, but nothing spectacular. Decent macro lager.

Saeglopur (1048) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2015
330 ml bottle brought from Asia by a friend.
Golden, clear body, with a big, frothy, white head.
Aroma of grass, flowers, bread, sweet fruits, some honey.
Taste is quite thin, but not unpleasant, with about the same aromas.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes moderate bitter, quite dry, also sweet, a bit fruity.

Not as bad as expected. Actually clean and fresh, with some interesting sweet, fruity notes. Overall too light, but a nice thirst quencher and one of the better pale lagers I’ve had.

I can’t remember if this beer has taste. It’s very gassy indeed. I burp and fart a lot after drinking this beer. Don’t consume this beer in confined area. Not much flavour. Just cold and gassy. Light colour, no body, gassy and quite big head almost like a volcano.

Japanese beers often have a dry aftertaste, and this has in particular. It smells not of much, have a reasonable foam and tastes reasonable. The taste has a little hop, a little flower is also in this dry aftertaste. Actually it has nothing special to offer.

Pale gold, slight aroma with a bit of hops. Taste is fairly clean, boring mouth feel, grainy, a bit sweet. Not terrible.

Drank from a bottle. Very light taste in the tradition of your typical macro lager. Nothing memorable.
