Pailhead (4803) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Bottle: Virtually no aroma. Only thing I can really pick up is a slight skunky aroma, but when I say slight I mean slight. Pours a transparent pale yellow with a small white head that disappears almost instantly. Somewhat malty taste with a slight bitter finish. That is being generous though because there really is about as much taste as there is smell. Almost none. Watery mouthfeel and not much aftertaste. Very boring beer. The Bud/Bud Light crowd would think this is a good beer. I don’t.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAY 17, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 I tried this at a local bar that has numerous different kinds of beers. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a pale golden color with a thick foamy head. Beer was drinkable, but had no character and was kind of boring to drink.

madquacker (1040) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
Ice cream cone head. Good carbonation. Soapiness predominates but still fresh and dry. Bland but very drinkable.

Bassy15 (60) - Cullowhee, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2004
It is like japan's Michelob, it had no harsh aftertaste. It looks a pale gold, with a dirty white head. Not too bad first japanesse beer i ever had.

Clear & crisp with no nasty after taste, compliments spicey food extremely well, such as Thai or Malaysian.

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 (5249) - 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.

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.
