Thank to MJuarez. Can: Pours a huge foamy white head, strong aroma and taste of what must be rice; grainy. Really super dry. Finish is chemical, iron-like.

This is pretty much your typical, industrially brewed local lager: bland and tasteless, with nothing really standing out worth mentioning. Crisp and dry, so it is easily drinkable and refreshing in hot temperatures. Probably still the best of the major Japanese beers.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 Uniquement goûtée lors de rares visites dans un restaurant japonais local. Une bière blonde très claire qui se laisse boire, mais sans plus.

Weak watery dry pils. Weak, stinks, but that could be due to the overload of durian in the Malaysian street. Had a nice trip, but not for the Beers.

Asahi - 12oz can w Hong Kong sticker, somewhere in Seoul, but the same can as I had on airplane ride here. Interesting how beer tastes different on airplanes, maybe it’s the short plastic cups they offer, gotta try taste testing some in those one of these days. Great bitterness, like what normally would take generations to build up in a feud. Similar to Heineken but more dry. Nice hop aroma too, builds anticipation of what beer culture in Korea might be. Assertive body up front, like someone trying to rush way onto a flight, but then vanishes like realization that we are all going to leave at the same time regardless. Very dry end, or is it just the climate on the plane? Not a lot of foam, but it’s nearly frozen. If i poured it out the window, would it make a chemtrail?

On tap at various pubs. Pours a pale biscuity gold with a white head. Sweet malt, bread, and mild citrus notes. Weak aroma. Sweet mslt, biscuity malt, mild citrus and very mild caramel flavours. Thin bodied. High carbonation. Not a good beer.

Craftakt (183) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2017
Überraschend positiv für ein asiatisches Massen Pale Lager. Sehr runde, aber monotone Noten von Malz und Kräutern. Ordentlich ausbalanciert mit ein wenig Hopfenbitterkeit. Überraschend geschmackvoll.

pleispleis (190) - Maccagno, ITALY - NOV 19, 2017
lattina 33 cl, schiuma bianca media grana evanescente, colore giallo pallido limpido, al naso lieve malto e lievito, in bocca non sa di niente, carbonatazione decisa, corpo inesistente, acidula, amaro percettibile. Una birra molto scarsa. Acqua sporca...... 19.11.17

Sebilinz (2669) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle. Golden body with white head. Aroma is malty some herbs in the background. Taste is sweet malty with some herbs in the background. Aftertaste is sweet slighty balanced by some hoppy bitterness. Average but not really bad

Well, it's a pale lager, so clear pale yellow with bubbly white head, minimal lace. Aroma and taste of crsip rice and light bread. Super clean and not much going on, but if that's what you like, go for it.
