1.7/5  rDev -37.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This was on tap, and comes in its own straight sided frosted glass with "Asahi" on one side and two japanese characters on the other. Very striking. The contents of course are more ordinary looking, clear straw coloured, largish bubbles. A small coarsely bubbled white head that does last and leaves a few transient dots of lace when swirled. There is virtually no smell or taste. When I close my eyes, yes, I can still tell it's beer I'm drinking but only by the faintest hint of grain and hops. The mouthfeel is rather watery and a bit overcarbonated.

Obviously catering to a market that don't really want a beer that's going to challenge the tastebuds, which is fine. There's certainly nothing unpleasant about it. I can also imagine it being a good accompaniment to Japanese food, the "clean crisp taste" complementing a cuisine focused on fresh ingredients and letting the delicate flavours of the food have the limelight. However for me there are plenty of other mass produced lagers that offer more than this. In both the UK and Australia Asahi is marketed as a premium lager with a corresponding price tag, but all you are getting for this is the packaging. I had a sip of my wife's Nastro Azzuro and this was in a different league by comparison.
