Aroma is rice, corn and some malt. Appearance is a very clear pale yellow. The taste is typical macro lager and some rice flavour comes through as well. Palate is thin. And fairly carbonated. Overall- nothing crazy, but I enjoy it more than your average American macro. The rice adds a touch of complexity and I like the dry finish.

Review: Bottle of Asahi Super Dry: ABV: 5% Asahi Super Dry, dry as in crisp with no sweetness in the taste, light and not much aftertaste. Super dry as in more of all that. I guess. The labeling on the bottle is very stylish I must say, shiny silver background with a black printed "Asahi" catching the eye On pour got a lovely clear light golden looking beer, with a nice big white foamy head, which unfortunately did die quite quickly. Lots of carbonation which was very crispy looking, can hear it bubbling away, was lively Slight lacing all over, but not much Overall, looks very good and refreshing, and nice carbo... Has a lovely beery smell, very, very sweet and some lemon and grass found. The lager yeast, and the rice coming to the fore. I liked the smell, faint aroma but not bad..... On tasting didn’t pick up anything of note, no flavours, nothing, didn’t taste anything at all! Also very light, is there really 5% in this! Ok there was some sweet rice, as you’d expect from an Asian beer, some grains and malts, and a bit of an aftertaste, but nothing to shout home about. Was a very slight taste in the back end, minimal hops Generally tasteless, not great at all. actually feel cheated. It says on the label beer, but this tastes like bottled water. And the fact it looked good and smelt ok, was very disappointing that the end product was so bad. A shite feel to the beer, very flat. One to avoid in the future! Looking at reviews online there seems to be some who say that in Japan it tastes so much better. Perhaps that is so, but I bought mine in a Chinese supermarket and can only go on that. Big beer companies should expect some flack when they put their name to bad exports and poor imitations........

adamnase (405) - Kronoby, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
33 cl bottle from Alko, Pietarsaari. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste are mainly sweet and light malts. Taste is quite sweet for a pilsener. Light bodied, watery, thin and boring

Terrible. Es extrañamente acidilla y no se qué más añadir para llegar al mínimo de caracteres excepto que no os molesteis.

Aromatu tu prawie że nie ma, lekko słodowe jedynie.Barwa złota, piana niska. W smaku takie nijakie, wielkiej tragedii może i nie ma ale nic poza tym. Lekkie

(Cas) Se trata de una cerveza tipo Lager de espuma fina y aroma muy suave y un sabor ídem pero en contraposición es muy refrescante, no sólo por la temperatura a la que se sirve, sino por la climatología de su país de origen. (Gal) rátase dunha cervexa tipo Lager de espuma fina, aroma moi suave e un sabor ídem pero en contraposición é moi refrescante, non so pola temperatura á que se serve, senon pola climatología do seu país de orixen.
