Where asahi fails to get anything right, Suntory seem to be one of the better macro brewers in Japan.
Some people seem to be confused with aroma and taste on this one. Taste being 60/70% smell that’s perfectly understandable. For me it has an intense wheat nose with some pollen thrown in.
Low carbonation, quite easy to drink with a bitter aftertaste.
Keeps a nice looking head, even after the initial pour. I prefer the original suntory malts but this does the business aswell.

Nice nose here...zesty, bitter lemon. taste is quite solid for a big company brewer. Malty & chewy with a well balanced bitter finish. One of the best "after bath beers" you’ll find from a can.

A golden lager with a huge unctuous frothy white head. Aroma of malt is lightly herbal hops. In mouth, plenty of biscuitty malts with German hopping, very grainy and chewy. Overall, quite interesting. Medium bodied. Can from Japan, from a colleague, Nov. 2007.

I like this beer quite a lot, it’s probably one of the best Japanese beers out right now.

Pale lager, quite full taste. OK balance between malt and hops, but there is a madical edge and a metallic finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Capa for this brew. Pours a golden color with a white head. Not really much to the aroma but is mostly sweet malts, grassy tones, and a slight hint of some hops. Flavor is lighter with plenty of the sweet malts and grass with a little hop presence. Definitly better then most pale lagers.

Draft @ Brewery: Pours a yellow color with a nice puffy white head and lots of lacing. The nose is malty, nice sweet fresh malts, a bit of husk and fairly up forward hops. The flavor is clean and malty, nice and fresh. Thanks Satoshi!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is grainy with some hops in the bunch. This beer tasted the closest to any pilsener that I could find in Japan. Clean taste, nice hops.

The aroma is so faint and uninteresting that I just don’t care. The palate, however, really struck me. It is oily, but also much creamier than other Japanese macros I have consumed. That’s all that I could really note. Everything else is nothing to rave about - airy, soapy head that leaves some random lacing; nearly dead, translucent bronze-yellow body; the hops seem to play near the finish, and I did like actually it, which then helped me note the aroma.
