Asahi Beer New Design

アサヒ

Asahi Beer have re-released one of their classic beer bottle designs on cans of their Asahi lager for the Christmas and New Year period.

Asahi Beer

The striking design features the old Rising Sun flag (though with more rays than the original sixteen of the now military tainted kyokujitsu-ki, 旭日旗), rising from Hokusai inspired waves, a motif taken from the artist's The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

The new limited edition design marks a change from the silver and black, plain style of Asahi Super Dry, which tastes how it looks, metallic and boring.
