Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, brewing cereal, and metallic hops, leading to a bitter finish.

So Toohey’s starts it all with "Extra Dry", then Hahn (not to be outdone) comes along with this "SuperDry" stuff, and now Toohey’s has come back with "Extra Dry PLATINUM" no less. All in the name of delivering as little flavour as possible in the beer! The whole idea is ridiculous. Well, they’ve succeeded here.

It’s definitely dry. Not much else. Boring but surprisingly not as bad as you would think

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairly good, clear golden coloured body with an average white head. Saaz hops on the nose. Fairly bland taste, bit like a pilsener dumbed down a bit, easy to drink cos there is not a great deal to it.

Ahahaha, I’ve been waiting to try this one for reasons unknown. Was it the satisfying allure of the ridiculous labelling that beats the Pure blonde at it’s own game, or the pithy ’SuperDry’ name as opposed to the feebler ’Extra Dry’ of Toohey’s fame. Its atleast packaged in brown bottles, but claims of no preservatives and additives would be hard to swallow, would it be just like this beer? Let’s find out:-
Exotic aroma of ’nothing at all’ greets the nostrils from the bottle. Head was impressive, albeit certainly artificial. Big, loose, cloud of white rose a good half-inch from the stein aided by the massive flurry of carbonation. Body a thinly looking, palest gold. There is a little ’Play-doh™’ in the nose now, and I see a light showing of what Highlandlad describes as tropical fruit icy poles, the cheap variety atleast. Oooh, hold on... the first mouthful had flavour, unexpected. It is watery to be polite, sourdough and filing paper make up most of the palate. Light zingy flavour of castor sugar and white bread upfront. It tickles the tip of the tongue, I suppose to block the connoisseur from truly judging the taste. Tonic water swallow without the carbonation, in fact this is very lightly carbonated which results in it muddying up the palate instead of cleaning it. Hops..., anyone???? Disappears into an appreciably chemical swallow with little to no flavour in the aftertaste. I won’t use woeful to describe it, maybe questionable, sad, or pitiful marketing angle playing at Australia’s obsession with eliminating all things high in carbs. But at the expense of flavour, I’d rather be overweight and jolly than thin and reduced to drinking this. That’s another beer over and out the way. A fad we need desperately to erase.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours pale gold with a large head that quickly fades into a scum-like layer.
Nose shows loads of sweet vegetal and rice notes, with some faint spicy hops in the background, followed later by some clean malt.
Very little in the way of flavours, there’s some cardboardy cereal malt before a short-lived bitterness kicks in.
Carbonation is too high.

Draught. Well, its not that dry. Actually, its hardly dry at all. Some sweetness to an otherwise grainy malt flavour.
