Pours a crystal clear straw color with a golden hue. There is a moderate frothy white head that retains very well.
In the nose the rice adjuncts dominate, followed by grainy malt and light lemon.
The taste and mouthfeel are about as clean as it gets. I did not detect the rice adjuncts, instead, I got more of a mild hops bitterness. Finishes dry, making it easy to drink. Light bodied and crisp.
Yes it’s bland and watery. However, I see this as a virtue rather than a detriment because I personally don’t like macro lagers that are too flavorful. I wouldn’t want to drink it on its own, however, its clean and dry flavor complimented the spicy wasabi from my sushi lunch quite well.

From a 330ml bottle. Brewed under licence in the UK by Shepherd Neame Brewery.
Looks and tastes like pretty much any global branded lager. Nose has no off notes but is also extremely muted. Mouthfeel is richer and smoother, however, and carbonation is low.
Very ordinary. A shoulder shrug in a glass.

Had at Nobu57. I believe the Japanese to English translation of Asahi is "Milwaukee's Best". If you drink more than 2, expect a pounding headache.

In a sushi restaurant that serves Asian beer and American light beer, and not being very familiar with Asian beers, I asked for a 'robust, tasty beer, the opposite of Bud Light.' Our waiter asked if Asahi would be okay. I said, "Sure." They served me Asahi Super Dry. It is very pale with no retention of head. Not much aroma; Carbonated mouthfeel; very mild flavor.

This is a basic tasting beer that is easy to session. This is an Asian equivalent of a lawnmower beer. There is nothing here that you have not already tasting with most American macros.
