flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 18, 2004
Clear gold color with a quickly dissipating medium white head. Sweet malt and corn aroma. Light malt and corn flavors. Thin, watery feel with a crisp dry finish. No yucky aftertaste. Not bad.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - APR 18, 2004
Clear golden yellow color with a medium white head that quickly diminished to a sickly film. The aroma was full of sweet corn, dusty/musty tones, and a little vomit. The flavor was sweet...very malt liquor-ish...some dusty/musty tones in the aftertaste. The feel was watery...mildly crisp...dry (duh) finish.

TheBeerGod (5165) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2004
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Finally got the dry style! Had this tonight with dinner at a sushi restaurant(Soya). Pours a blond body with a tall white head. Nose is malty and kind of sweet. The taste is more malt and very faint hops and a faint grassy note. Finish is sort of bland and not really dry like I expected. Decent beer and damn good with dinner tonight, but nothing I'd go out of my way to seek out.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2004
It's best to taste Japanese beers away from the sushi restaurant. In which case, Asahi dry is a decent quaffable beer with no aftertaste.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2004
not that bad. pretty much taste neutral, but that can be a good thing. Definalty had the "dry" flavor, but none of the aftertaste that dooms it's american cousins.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2004
Not completely bad. Good malt presence, a bit of actual stickiness, and something that seems like a noble hop or two. Crisp, clean, and not rancid and full of adjuncts.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Pale yellow. Aroma of cigarette smoke, corn, lemons and grass. Fizzy and light, mild flavors of grains and fuel. Sweet malt finish.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2004
This is an expensive beer for people that either just enjoy curious slogans printed on what they are reading or wish to have some kind of exotic appeal to 18 yr olds doing japanese for the HSC.

I am going to claim I drank it for the rating only, it was my 100th and I wanted something to giggle at.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours a light gold color with a medium quickly dimishing head. Aroma is light in all regards. Flavors are of light malt, light hops and a slightly metallic taste. Body is about the same as water. Not too bad.
