Thick creamy white head on top of a frotohy deep golden pour, effervescent but viscous. Average carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a perfect amount of bubbles, finishes crisp. Light lager flavor with some sweet cream smoothness, subtle grain. Very nice Japanese lager with perfect smooth creaminess that balances the sweetness.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Typical pale lager appearance. Corn, yeast, metallic, sugar, and light malt fragrance. Smooth and light bodied. Surprisingly not terrible. Typical pale lager taste initially, but rather than a revolting metallic finish, a pleasantly dry and slightly hoppy finish arises. Preferable to other macros.

Light lager. Water in general, weak aroma, taste, palette. Hard to distinguish any nuances.

Golden bubbly with small white head. Watery sour carbonated taste with minimal bitterness.

Clear golden pour. Normal head volume, very poor retention and normal lacing. Light nose of rice over a slightly off hay background that seemed old. Light body with a texture similar to water. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is a bit bland, but not bad. It begins with a blend of rice and mild hop flavor that flows into a slightly bitter middle. As the middle tails off, a nice dryness emerges over a slightly metallic hay like component. The finish is crisp and dry.

TIL, that Staropramen helps brew this for Europe, I almost wish I didn’t know this. Aroma of cereal and a bit of metal Light yellow color, barely any head, boring Taste is the same Semi-refreshing Overall: Boring, even compared to most pale lagers. Stick to Shochu and Sake, or well better brews. In terms of Macro Japanese brews, I prefer Kirin a lot more. Kampai

Not as bad as expected- so that basically says it all. Somewhat crisp and refreshing and slightly beer-like. Biscuity and sweet with a strange tinny aftertaste. Tastes like carbonated rice water.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 Flesje besteld bij sushi restaurant in mijn woonplaats. In Tsjechië gebrouwen variant. Uitgeschonken in origineel Asahi bierglas. Goudgele lager met kleine witte schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt. Licht aroma van gerstemout, rijstmout, gras en zachte hop. De smaak is zacht, licht droog, graan, rijst, lichte en verfrissende smaak, minimaal hop. Helemaal geen verkeerde pale lager, deze Asahi Super Dry, en laat zich prima combineren met Aziatische visgerechten, vooral sushi. Het is inderdaad een drogere variant van lager, deze minder gezoete smaak is absoluut een pluspunt. Het gebruik van rijst geeft altijd een zachte en dorstlessende eigenschap aan dit soort bieren. Vrijwel geen nasmaak of afdronk. Wel enigszins waterig en weinig hoppig, maar dat hoort bij deze stijl. Een eenvoudige lager die heel gemakkelijk wegdrinkt. Bevalt altijd uitstekend in het Japans restaurant.

Bottle, pours golden with a white head. Malty, sweetish, unremarkable industrial lager.

Clear, yellow. Foam disappears fast. Metallic tasting, not pleasant. Medium sweet. Not very good.
