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

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.

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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours is a bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma is hardly anything. Flavor is corny and slightly metallic. Not good in every catagory.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear golden with a white head. Lightly malty aroma. Taste is grainy with notes of lemon, corn and light hops. Moderately sweet, not much bitterness. Dry finish. Medium body, very fizzy carbonation. Decent head retention and lacing. Not good, but drinkable.

No hop taste, no real after taste. Light and refreshing but so is water. Gets a 10 overall because it does go well with light fare.
