Ihan ok keppana. Lappari, jossa asteen verran korteisempi maku, mutta eipä sen kummempi.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Bright pale straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of rice and grains, a bit corny and skunky, with faint herbal hops. Sugary with a bitter feel. Oily medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish but feels more than 5% ABV, very dry and bold, with lingering sweet rice, grains, and faint skunky herbs. Flavorful lager, lots of character, yet not pleasant on the palate. Lacking some freshness, and thick on the tongue. Overall below average quality.

Skarecrow (268) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 14, 2016
633ml bottle. BB 13/5/2017 Light straw color with good head which quickly dissipates. Grainy aroma. Medium bitterness with thin (albeit sweet body) and clean finish. Also a touch of wet cardboard lurking in the background. Japan’s No. 1 Imported Beer ? Why one asks ?? Given this and a Tiger Beer, I’d take the Tiger any day. Average.

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 (415) - 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

Torrefacto (1458) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 16, 2016
Terrible. Es extrañamente acidilla y no se qué más añadir para llegar al mínimo de caracteres excepto que no os molesteis.
