Sometimes you're in places where the choices are limited, rice Lager; very light pale color and a poor smell of starch, it lacks flavor and just the vague hints of starch residues from rice and the drought after giving more bad taste

Drank from a pint glass on draft at a pub in Hong Kong.

This stuff is absolutely everywhere in Hong Kong and for some reason most people think it's good - probably just because it's Japanese. Don't be fooled..

I drank it this time because the bar I was in only had cheapo mass-produced abominations like this available.

Pale yellow and nothing to look at apart from a massive chemically produced head which disappeared immediately and left no lacing whatsoever. Rubbish.

Nose has some detectable aromas although they are virtually indescribable in beer terms; metallic and chemical-like. Very unpleasant.

Palate is pretty much the same. Very weak, watery. Unpleasant.

Mouth is very poor. Artificial carbonation, watery. Horrible.

An overwhelmingly and depressingly poor beer. Made even worse by the fact so many people think it's good. Brewed by Carlsberg in China. Please don't drink this craps.

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.

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.

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 Â’fess up to using rice as a main ingedient.
