unlike super dry, unfortunately, you just don't see this one everywhere you turn. i can only think of one store that i shop at that carries this. too bad, this is a nice premium j-mac.
Asahi's Fujisan is an impressive, good-looking beer, especially coming from my least favorite macro. looks like a real pils, with active carbonation and a big, healthy head, good retention, even some lacing. i'm having a really hard time smelling this because, as it's the beginning of mosquito season, there is bug-killing smoke in the air. still, i can tell this has a pretty good smell, obviously hoppy. not quite what i expect from a good pils, but not bad.
very smooth, easy drinking, i have a new current favorite macro. it's a little tastier than most, but still has a hint of the tap water. compared to a japanese rice lager, this is grapefruit bitter. recommended.

A: Poured a bright, clear golden color with light orange hues and a creamy white head that faded quickly.
S: On the nose was sweet corn, a very light floral hopping and grassiness.
T: For flavor there was fresh cereal grains, a light floral hop fade and finished dry.
M: The mouthful was soft and light with low carbonation, nice crispness and a dry grass hop lacing.
D: Ok drinkability per style.

Had this one on-tap at a famous houtou (wintersquash and thick noodle soup) restaurant in Yamanashi, Japan.
Appearance - Light golden color. Retains a thin head with some lacing on the glass.
Smell - Very light with some hops up front.
Taste - A pretty good pilsener. A little hoppy with some high quality Mt. Fuji water which makes it refreshing in spring and summer.
Mouthfeel - It's smooth like water but keeps the pilsner feel with the hops and light malt on the tongue.
Drinkability - I can go for a few of these in one sitting. It's a refreshing beer in the warm to hot seasons.
I recommend this one if you go to Yamanashi, Japan to see Mt. Fuji.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass.
The marketing says that this is made from water from mount Fuji. Not sure if this just marketing [like Coors], but I was pleasantly surprised by this brew.
Poured a a crystal clear golden/orange. Had a small white head which dissapated rather quickly. Moderate carbonation can be seen rising.
Aroma was quite floral with some sweet pears/apples thrown in. The taste was light and smooth. Nice lager yeast and malt taste. Some moderate hops at the end. Quite pleasent.
Mouthfeel was lightly cleansing with a medium/light mouthfeel. Overall, a very drinkable beer. Definitely better than I was expecting [certainly not your typical Japanese rice lager]. A nice social beer.

This is a good one ! Clear yellow with a white head that quickly thins but never disappears completely, laces glass nicely. Just the right balance of hops to clear malts.
This was served to me at Hama Sushi, after I basicaly complained about Kirin. This was in fact from the owner's private stock! (It pay's to become a loyal regular customer at these places!!)
