Just wasn't impressed with this beer. Definitely bitter mouthfeel and not much body to the beer. The aroma that was present was very faint.

Plain and simple beer. I always have an Asahi with sushi as it goes really well with it. Color is typically pale straw, taste is crisp and clean. Not a lot of hops little to no malt. Smell is like an American lager. Overall this is one of the better Japanese beers. I like this beer served ice cold.

For a beer made with filler, it is ok and heel, goes good with sushi, and not because I think it's supposed to. It's just so light that it helps cleanse the palate. Have you ever tried drinking something really robust with sushi? Not me. This beer has its place. The Japanese need the equivalent of a Busch, anyway....

Nothing intermingling about this one... In conclusion: a complete disappointment, probably better to drink some tap water with ice

An adjunct like lager but no worse than many of the same style. A nice dry finish.
