Served very cold. Not too much in the smell, possibly a slight grainy note. Golden straw colour with bubbles streaming up and an initial thick white head. The taste is as the name suggests "super dry", crisp and refreshing and would be thirst quenching on a hot day. Overall a tasty lager and in the correct situation something that can be enjoyed.

jann3 (101) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Pours clear golden with a big frothy head, that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweetish with malty and grainy notes, combined with some mild herbal/floral notes. Taste is mild and malty/grainy with some moderate hoppiness. Slightly dryish finish. Lively CO2, but quite watery mouthfeel. Very basic but refreshing lager. (44 cl bottle, best before 24 Jun 2015, produced by Baltika Breweries in Russia)

Bière japonaise dorée, brassée avec du riz, en grande Bretagne pour ce qui est du marché européen... Une pils comme il en existe mille. Pas la plus insipide mais qu’on oubliera tout de même aussi sec. Bon... Vais me boire une Eku moi...

YantarCoast (59) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 25, 2014
Poured from 500ml bottle into lager glass. Transparent pale yellow colour with small and brief head. Aroma of grains and rice, taste is similar. Simple and refreshing. UK version doesn’t differ much in taste compared to Japan-brewed version.

renffisch (789) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
0,33l bottle at home. Quite pleasant as far as ricey and watery goes, since it has an actual hint of hops.
