[backlog] 17-04-16 / bottle at Sushileecious, Wiesbaden. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.75/5

Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is musty hops, sour corn. Taste is grainy sweet and awkward sour. Same in the finish. Bad.

superspak (4675) - Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2016
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, M21525 bottle code. Pours crystal clear golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, corn, rice, white bread, grain, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt, adjunct, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit too fruity in the nose. Flavors of cracker, corn, rice, white bread, grain, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, corn, rice, white bread, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, adjunct, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Moderate dryness, but not too dry. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and grainy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very solid rice lager. Good robustness and balance of pale malt, adjunct, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Golden yellow color, little white head. Aroma: something metallic reminds me. Watery taste. Whent it´s cold then it might be refreshing beer for hot summer, but nothing more.

typical mass-market lager, but without the adjust aftertaste. Label says "super dry" but its far from dry - actually slightly sweet/malty finish.

DavidAust (194) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle into a standard shaker glass. Served chilled. I’ll give it credit for being Crisp and clear as per the label. Otherwise a pretty bland beer, which unfortunately about all you can get at most regular pubs / bars and clubs in Australia and where Asahi is seen as "exotic" and special. OK in a pinch.

Rather metallic and malty flavour, and clear rice influence it leaves a dry tongue.

Zoret (324) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 19, 2016
D’ampolla a casa. Cervesa color groc-daurat amb escuma blanca molt abundant i fina, poc duradora amb retenció i adherència mitja. aromes de sofre, gra, i palla. En boca es aigualida i un punt metal-lica, amb aromes similars i una mica d’herba. No m’agradat.

Not much to this beer. Yellow color with white head. Looks refreshing but isn’t when it comes to flavor. Very watery with a strange bitter aftertaste. [Booming voice] Disapprove!
