Pretty dim lit restaurant. Pale yellow clarity. Half inch white merengue head, decent lacing and plenty of sprite carbonation.

Aroma difficult to judge with many food aromas in vicinity. What I can say is that I found nothing offensive.

Definitely can taste the rice adjunct. Leans towards a sweeter side. Light malt.

Smooth and mellow. It does in fact finish dry.

I'm usually having Sopporo with my hibachi but tonight I wanted to try this Asahi again. Does not disappoint. Finishes dry enough to accompany Japanese fare extremely well. I'm not sitting in my backyard with this but this does the job with dinner. As far as I'm concerned, that has to mean something.

Golden color with an aired one finger head with medium retention.
Light aroma of rice, pale malt and faint herbal hops.
Flavor of sweet pale malt, rice, a bit of oxidation and herbal hops.
Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light to watery body with good carbonation.
Very crisp and clean taste, though it has a dull taste, but the rice adjunct here does not bother at all. Its body is too thin, especially after carbonation slows down. All in all, it sure goes down well with Japanese food.

Sampling right now on 3/6/14. From the Asahi Breweries Ltd (by Molson) in Ontario, Canada. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a Irish imperial pint glass.

Pours a pale gold in color with a small thin head that settles down to around the top of the brew. Some spotty lacing is seen. Lots of small streaming bubbles rise up from the bottle during the whole drink. The light aroma is just of some grains with a hint of sweet corn. The taste clean with a dry slightly bitter finish. With the high carbonation, the aftertaste is a bit on the 'stinging' side, which is over done. Overall, not a great beer.
