Beer 294: Asahi Karakuchi and All Things Japanese

Last evening's outing could best be described as a Japanese bender. Excellent sushi, sake, Rogue's Morimoto beer, Asahi Super Dry and a hooker. It wasn't my party's hooker thankfully. Also Rogue's Morimoto beer is fantastic but that's not why I'm here today.

Yes, more washed out, blue photos! The Asahi Breweries' Karakuchi or super dry was a lovely surprise from our dinner companions. It's getting very challenging for us to find new the odds are pretty slim for a friend to pick a new to us beer. Congrats, Chrissy. Great beer choices!

This one is a Japanese rice lager with a 5% ABV. It is a decidedly average, mass produced beer that reminded us of Heineken. There was nothing remarkable about the flavor...just tasted like beer. Not too malty. Not too hoppy. But it did have body and wasn't a watery mess. This is an average beer.

On the other hand, you should go find a Rogue Morimoto Soba ale. Now that is a delicious beer. I'm sorry I didn't take notes on that one. I was trying not to be the weird girl who writes beer notes at the table during dinner.
