it is what it says... super dry. very clean lager, no detectable nastiness. pale, clear, moderate carbonation. dry on the palate. very little flavor. wish there was a tad more bittering hops.

Bottle/draft. Pours a very thin straw color with a white head. No real aroma, no real flavor. I prefer Kirin Lager with sushi.

LtJudge (468) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours a nice straw color with a small medium white head. No real aroma to it(Grains?). Slight hop flavor and very crisp. Went well with japanese food though!

llcooldave (1199) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Poured a nice straw color. no real detectable aroma. Taste is rather clean and crisp just as the commercial description with no flavor. Basically this is a Japanese version of Bud. It goes well with Japanese food (obviously) but, surprisingly goes well with other food. Has some with steaks I made and it was great. If not for its ability to go well with food, Id probably rate it much lower.

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Pours with a smooth head. Very, very light straw color, and lots of carbonation. Theres not too much to the aroma, kind of grassy. The taste is not too complex either, but has hints of rice and hop and super short finish. Tried it with seaweed salad but it was nasty, thank jesus for the Asahi to wash it down with. The palate is very flat, and overall this beer tastes like a Miller Lite, but with a Japanese feel to it. Easy session beer, ok with snacks, and the short finish make it worth the while.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 In the 3-neck race between this, Sapporo and Kirin when choosing a beer from the small selection at the sushi bar, Ive most often selected the Asahi Super Dry. Odd because I think Sapporo Premium is a slightly better beer standalone. Certainly an abrupt finish and a minimal chopped-off aroma here. It does however let me best enjoy the soy sauce and spicy tuna roll without having to take centerstage as the beverage.

Canned: Brewed in Czech Republic! A bit pale looking. Very fresh, neutral aroma. Flavour is a mildly dry and hoppy. Quite high carbonation. Overall its quite plain but nevertheless very fresh, clean and easy to drink.
