2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml from Tesco. Pale gold with lasting white head. Lemon and cereal aroma. Bit of malt. Actually pretty good. Better than I was expecting, none of the usual Uckiness (techincal term). Bit too carbonated and a bit metallic, but otherwise fine, some hop bite on end.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The bottle poured a polished, pale yellow beverage with a small fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and left almost no lacing on the glass. The aroma was very light and delicate with a barely detectable presence of roasted grain and bread. There was also a note of old leather in the background. The body was light with a fizzy carbonation and dry texture (as the name implied). The flavor, what there was of it, started off lightly bitter and ended up the same way through the short lived finish.

The taste of Asahi Super Dry is best described as ’fresh, crisp and clear - with a sharp delivery that slakes thirst before slipping gently on.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2006 Bottled. Poor. Very weak and watery, greyish colour, nothing taste. Maybe I need to try it with sushi as many here seem to recommend, but it’d have to be some dramatic turnaround to make this beer half-decent.

(0.33L Bottle) I asked the waitress at a sushi place in town to give be the best beer she had (out of three different Japanese beers). This is what she brought out. Little aroma and head. Goes well with food (sushi), but probably would have tasted worse alone. Overall, not much taste but refreshing.

I sampled this with 6 other Asian beers and this was the weakest of the bunch. I didn’t think “Super Dry" meant "Super Bland".

This one got me through some tough times in the land of the rising sun. Doesn’t need to be said, but it tastes much better over there than in the States. Pours a pale yellow, not much of a discernable scent, slight lacing. Flavor is smooth with, as to be expected, a dry finish. Perfect for sushi and edemame.

There is very little aroma except for some grain. The color is a very pale golden with a white head some slight lacing. The flavor is grainy with a dry light finish to the palate.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts and rice. Flavor is sweet malts, grain, smooth, and rice.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. Pale golden with a small white head. Unpleasant aroma with malt, rice and some sweetness. The flavor is mostly rice-like, with some floral hop notes. Thin body. Hope to get a chance to re-rate it some day, I don’t remember this beer to be this poor. (060413)
