1.13/5  rDev -58.1%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours with a pale gold colour (almost straw). The head is white and low with a very poor retention and no lacing. Very clear.
A very weak aroma with some husky notes.
The taste is adjuncty with a citrus presence. The bitterness is offensive to the palate. No malts and very little hops presence.
It is very dry and kind of puckery with an acceptable level of carbonation. Low alcohol strength. The finish is dry and tart.

Asahi is not an enjoyable lager. It is too puckery and disagreeable in the mouth. First and last time.

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at Disney's Epcot.

Appearance: Amber with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Horrible skunky smell. Not pleasant.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste was skunked almost sour. Barely taste some hops.

Overall: One of the worse beers I've ever had. Will not have this one again.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Poured a sickly pale straw color... tiny white cap that vanishes immediately, no lace, no aroma, no real taste...but very crisp and dry...acheived with agressive infused carbonation and bittering oils. Much like club soda with lemon. At least this is one mega brewer with the guts to ’fess up to using rice as a main ingedient.

I tried this beer on August 13, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent pale gold colour with very little head. The aroma was grainy malt with some hoppiness. The mouthfeel was thin bodied, watery, and highly carbonated. The flavour is grainy and otherwise tasteless.

Very pale gold with a sizzling white head that almost instantly disappears.

Aroma is very much like a wet dog with some grain and cereal notes.

Unfortunately the wet animal flavor is predominant in the flavor as well. It has an unpleasant sort of sweetness and no malt or hop character whatsoever.

Body is thin, fizzy, and watery. I drank about 3 sips and the rest went down the drain. Avoid.
