UDBeernut (2046) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Big 1 qt can from half time, poured in pint glass. Light straw yellow color capped by white craggily rock head with fair retention. No aroma. Light buttery cracker sweetness. Slight undulating bitterness. Not to shabby as a session.

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.

Pours golden with thin white head. Aromas are grass and grain. Light body, hight carbonation. Typical industrial lager. Nothing to add.

MSBrindbergs (528) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Flaska från SB. Klar pissgul med mycket litet vitt skum. Doftar inte mycket, lätt av malt och metalliskt. Kraftigt kolsyrad, torr med brödig smak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The one good thing to say about this is that it is crisp in taste and not oily, like some of the other industrials. Bad stuff.

Limited choice in hotel bar. Basically this or Becks. Went for this to see if it was different. It wasn’t.
