Absolutely delicious, from the sweet taste to the strong ale underpinnings. Easily the best beer widely offered by the majors.

Soapy toffee. Rich caramel malt, mild green hops, some alcohol burn, bittersweet finish. A step in the right direction for Asahi, still a bit too sweet and basic.

Straight from the can. Surprised to smell hops from Asahi! Some bread and malts. Best beer I’ve had from Asahi.

Can (Tokyo)
Clear golden color, good white head. Grainy, cardboardish aroma. Medium-bodied. Harsh, alcoholic and grainy flavor. Nasty boozey finish. Duh.

Bulk_Carrier (2270) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a super clear golden yellow color with a light carbonation seen rising at a moderate pace. There was a light one finger white foamy head that didn’t have much lacing about it. The smell had some light sweetened to roasty corn all over. The taste was mainly sweet with a slight touch of hop balance. On the palate, this one sat fairly light to medium and had a good sessionability to it. Overall, I say this wasn’t a bad beer. Its worthy of having again.

Fukuokaman (2) - Fukuoka, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2013 does not count
Best beer I have tasted since moving to Japan over 1 year ago. Finally a beer that does not taste like all the generics. I find that in many cases ’real beer’ tastes just like their cheaper Happoshu counterparts. Well done Asahi, hopefully it is not temporary

douglas88 (6333) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12 ounce can thanks to the wife. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A rich peppery and banana nose, some pils malt. The flavor is bready, pilsner malts, some light crisp hops, mellow banana and yeast. Very smooth and quite nice. This is a solid quaffable brew with some bite. Finishes with a light noble hop.

Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUN 8, 2013
Aroma: grainy, earthy malt, floral, earthy, and grapefruit peel from the hops. Flavor: moderately sweet grainy malt, dried peas and melon, light earthy hops. Light bitterness on a very short finish. Comment: soft, mellow palate. The sweetness is just short of cloying. Not bad for Asahi, maker of the bland, characterless Super Dry.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 11, 2013
Lata. Clear golden, medium fairly well alsting white head. Aroma of malt with bit fruit (hop) and some sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Flavour has a decent maltiness with some frutish hops to it, some caramel sweetness. Mild to mediium bitterness. Pleasant.
