Crystal clear dark straw colour. Small white head dissipates immediately.

Very light grainy malt aroma. Touches of vegetal character.

Light and very easy drinking. Very little malt. No bitterness. Crisp.

Medium-light body. High carbonation. It is what it is.

For what it is supposed to be Asahi delivers. I don't hate it but I'm not going to be jumping to get my hands on it.

Brewed in Thailand for the export market.

Clean, easy-drinking beer for thirst quenching. Not a sipper's beer.

Best paired with meals where you do not want the beer to obscure or outshine flavourful foods

Works well with spicy meals where you expect guests to drink two or more beers in short-order since the beer is not heavy, does not fill the stomach.

Enough gassiness to cleanse the palate.

Nice and light without being watery.

Best served stone-cold from a short stint in the freezer.

The beer is an excellent light food beer. Rice lager that is easy to drink and very under rated - If you want a light beer with a dry finish, that is easy to drink and you don't need to think about, I cannot recommend a better beer

This is not the beer you pick when you want a ton of flavor or something heavy, sometimes you just want something light and refreshing and it doesn't get in the way of anything else

This is that beer
