Asahi meaning ‘rising sun’ was developed as Japan’s first ‘dry’ beer.
Super crisp, super clear and super dry, the beer embodies Japanese discernment and good taste. 24 x 330ml. 5% ABV. 1.7 UK Units.
Clean and crisp with a restrained bitterness and a subtle citrus aroma, this light golden beer was Japan's first "dry" lager. Its deft, distinct dryness comes from a carefully concise fermentation period, a minimum four week maturation period and the traditional addition of a small amount of rice. Fresh and with plenty of balanced finesse, it's an ideal accompaniment to the well-defined flavours and textures found in sushi.
