Like the indomitable snowman in the Andes, Asahi needs to be ICE COLD - and lemme tell you: mine is ice cold! Flavor? Still a bit windexy, but like Gary Payton in the 4th quarter, it ain’t that bad!

Another safe, drinkable Japanese lager. Crisp and clean, faint notes of grain and malt with that underlying sweetness that seems to define this type of lager. Small amount of head, very faint aftertaste with little in the way of mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation at the beginning but fades quickly with time and as the beer begins to warm. Probably not as good as other Japanese counterparts (Kirin) but still easy enough to drink and enjoy at any time.

This is the first Japanese beer that I have tried. Really watery with a slight rice type of taste NO DATE on the bottle. I am not impressed with this. The Kirin Ichiban is much better. This is not an undrinkable beer but I am sure that this is not a staple in the Japanese beer market. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range

Regardless of style, people frequently seem to judge every beer to the same degree of an Imperial IPA. Not everything has to be a hop or malt bomb. Read the BJCP guidelines "Bros". For a Pumpkin Spiced Pinot Noir Barrel Aged Imperial Sour, it's not all that complex. For an International Pale Lager, it's a nail on the head.

Pours a clear, very light yellow with a bit of fine head.

Smell is very light, just a little bit of malt and rye.

Taste is clean and crisp, slighty buttery. Very little bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Not a bad beer at all, but very boring.

A bit of a boring beer. Poured a clear yellow into a tulip glass. Slight white head ok lacing. Sweet smell. Does not taste like much. A bit of sharpness at the finish. Not something I will go out of my way to drink. Rather have a Budweiser.

From the 355 ml. bottle with smudged marking on its neck. Sampled on January 31, 2018

It pours bright yellow with a modest foamy white head that becomes a ring but never dissipates entirely. Random lacing on the side of the glass.

The aroma is rice, sweet, brown bread, citrus, and grass. But overall the smell seems fresh and vibrant.

The body is light and smooth.

The taste is sweet, crisp, and clean and it is dry but I wouldn't call it "Super dry" as they do on the label. Finish is quick. This is refreshing for sure.
