Might work with spicy food but has little to recommend it as a quaffer. Rich hoppy aroma. Thin body. Dry finish, as the name suggests but little else to remark on. Hello taste?

Pours yellow, slight bubbly head. Light malty aroma, thin thin taste (if any), but highly enjoyable creamy smooth soothing palate. Great beverage for intensely flavored foods. I would try this again.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2005
Yellow witha bubbly medium lasting head. Has a decent malt aroma that promises much more than the beer can keep. The flavour is extremely thin, mostly water with a hint of malt. Worked OK with my curry though.

This is indeed a dry, chalky offering. Smooth, but unimpressive. Grainy. Definitely pairs better with spicy Asian food.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2005
Bottle. Grain aroma. Light yellow colour, big white unstable head. Mouthfeel is not bad for a lager. Not much flavour. Hint of bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Stinks of corn and rice. Tastes of corn and rice. Piss yellow, mine was contract-brewed in Canada (?). Not worth the three bucks for the 16oz. bottle. Tastes like BMC. Pissssssssss.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2004
Bottled. Corny lagerish aroma to this old gold colourd lager. The taste is typical lager bite with a refreshing edge. Quite crisp and inoffensive and refreshing but lacking character.

Clear light orange. Boring nose, a little stale. Not a heap going on flavour wise but I’ve always maintained this beer is about texture, feel and the fact is it generally succeeds as a crisp, dry style. And it’s worth a few points to that alone.

Had this at Sushi King in Troy. Japan’s #1 beer, huh? Well, it’s good to know that the masses of Japan know as much about beer as the masses of America. Poured light yellow with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Faint aroma. Flavor is strong corn wtih a metallic, slightly hoppy twinge. Body is very light and the beer disappears in your mouth (the meaning behind "super dry"?). I should’ve just stuck with water instead.
