Released in tandem with Suntory Royal Blend, super grocer/retail chain Aeon put the handcuffs on one exclusive Asahi Royal Pils. Is this even legal? Let’s find out!
In contrast to the Royal Blend’s tan color, we have Asahi’s Royal Pils pouring out a light straw… at first glance its you average brew, but wait! Hmm… we have a hint of citrus coming out of the glass, it’s fresh and hoppy… interesting. Your first gulp will embrace your mouth with a well rounded full bodied flavor, with the bitterness hitting the back of the throat.
Asahi’s Royal Pils is a very nice brew indeed, well rounded is the key here. You have your malt flavors up front, bitter hops on the back, with citrus notes. It’s a perfect brew to toast the coming of summer! Get yours exclusively at your nearest Aeon grocer, while supplies last.
