LED40 (82) - - JAN 20, 2012
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.

Lebo88 (185) - POLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle 633 ml. It seems that those Asian lagers are even worse that eurolagers. A hardly drinkable beer and it gets even worse when you consider the price.

Hamirubi (349) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2015
Sample from a 35cl can (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. This Japanese can was a gift from a colleague at work. Served in a taster glass, the beer colours golden and bright, even pale with minimal foam. The nose has keen hay and grass features, with a yeasty dough hint. The taste is rather light, with mild bitterness. This is a pale lager with a light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation, and a bitter finish. A beautiful lager drink, this one.

LazyPyro (64) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
330ml bottle from Tesco (UK brewed I believe). Pours clear golden colour with small white head. As the name suggests it does indeed have a dry finish with a light bitterness. Quite refreshing. 22nd May 2013.

Westchesterco (1477) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Poured from a bottle it is a clear light gold with a slight white head. The aroma is a sweet malt and the taste is thin with a hint of rice and malt Nice try

Iphonephan (4795) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2015
From a bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head. Grainy nose. Flavors of rice. Crisp clean finish. Not bad for an Asian pale lager.

Moravius (891) - Beijing, CHINA - OCT 8, 2015
Flasche (Asahi Draft Beer Super "Dry", 633 cl) aus dem Pyongyang Shop, Pyongyang (dürfte demnach das in Japan gebraute Original sein). - Goldgelb, blank, schöne Schaumkrone. - In der Nase schwach seifiges Malz, ganz schwach hopfenwürzig, etwas leer. - Antrunk dünn hellmalzig mit zitronig-herben aber etwas künstlich wirkenden Hopfennoten (Spülmittel). Gut rezent, sehr schlank, fast dünn, trockenes Mundgefühl. Auch diesem Bier fehlt es deutlich an Körper - der Einsatz von Reis ist eben nicht ohne Einbußen möglich. Im Abgang milde aber etwas schroffe Zitronenschale. Leicht trockener, schaler Nachgeschmack. - Angenehm trocken und auch etwas herb aber aromatisch sehr einspurig, dazu arg dünn. Nicht weiter bemerkenswert.

Woc (67) - BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2015
Can. Bought in Belgium. Brewed in Czech republic for European branch of Asahi London. So what do you expect? Taste? Aroma? Joy? Forget about it. It is plain, no aftertaste, I won’t remember anything about this beer in 5 minutes.

pityu (158) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle - Pale yellow colour, thin disappearing head. Aroma of hay and maybe some malt. Taste of water, nothing more I can identify. Very thin, watery body, fizzy carbonation. Completely featurless industrial crap.
