Can, 5%. OK aroma, slightly grainy. Clear yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is grainy with a faint, strange sweetness.

Bottle at a restaurant in Quezon City, Philippines. Pours crisp gold with white head. Aroma of bread, hops and malt. Taste of bitter hops and bread. Bitter aftertaste. This is my second favorite Philippine beer behind Red Horse.

Pours a very rich golden color with a pure white head. The aroma is full and balanced with malt, sweet grain, hops and some salt. The taste starts off ok but gets sour and has a bad aftertaste. Its strong sweet grainy and salty. Could be good on the beach though in Batangas. Yeah it is.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can from the can. Cereal grains, dough, and bready notes to the nose. Flavor is much of the same with a crisp finish. Just like any regular beer...

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
I don’t know if its the influence of reading the label, but I do think I actually detect a hint of citrusy hops in there. I’d say its a toss up between this and the all malt variety as to which is least bad of the set. The super dry had the largest billowing white head of the whole lot. but all of them dissipated pretty rapidly. This is the closest thing to an american pale ale that you’re gonna find around these parts!

GoufCustom (793) - HONG KONG - JUL 25, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at Park N Shop Superstore in Fanling.

Piss-like golden yellow colour; One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which last for about 30 seconds; Minimal lacing and fizzy carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with strong rice, corn syrup, light bread, faint citrus and grass. Wet cardboard smell becomes stronger as the beer warms; Mid to light sweet taste of lager malt, with strong rice, corn, syrup, light bread, faint wet cardboard, very light citrus and faint grass; Medium body, oily palate; Mouth feel is a thickened macro with loads of rice and corn syrup elements, increasing cloying with each sips. Blurp… The advertised ‘super dry’ palate can be felt but rather lightweight and really not crisp at all, not even comparable to the ‘dry’ standard Asahi Super Dry; Hoppiness is feather-light citrus and grassy nose and taste, and a very light bitterness for some lingering plus cardboard and chemical finish. Slightly dry after taste, quietly cloying to mouth.

Comments: Always approach San Mig’s products with caution and lowered expectation, and this one is no different: a pretty poor Asian macro which has a fat syrupy body, usual adjunct taste, and little if any dryness and crispness. The brewer must have never heard of or tried Asahi Super Dry, and the result is dismal and laughable. Drain pours!

Pours clear gold with a fluffy white head. Tastes have a hint of citrus mixed in with the hops.

Hansen (6563) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2013
Is not super-dry! Yellow coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavor starts sweet too. Hardly any bitterness. Soft carbonation.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2013
Can. Pours clear pale golden wth negligible white head. Hoppy and grainy aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavour with grainy and acidic notes. Dry aftertaste. Watery mouthfeel. Acceptable but nothing really impressive.
