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 itís ability to go well with food, Iíd probably rate it much lower.

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, Iíve 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 itís quite plain but nevertheless very fresh, clean and easy to drink.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - SEP 20, 2007
Drank it in Costa Rica. Pours a light yellow with no head, and very fizzy. No taste, a bit metallic. Finishes very dry. So then again no taste at all

Super dry, yes. Only thing which makes this beer stand out. Doesnít taste bad, but rather barely tastes at all. Strangely refreshing, however. It does go well with Japanese food.

Pours a light golden color. Not much aroma, flavor/mouthfeel is barely there. I love the "super dry" finish to it. Nothing Iíd drink when I want a good beer, but it goes along well with chinese food.

can: Well at least they are not lying. Super Dry is true, but also no flavour or texture at all. It is smooth but has sacrificed all flavour so what is the point? Funny, the can states it is the beer for all seasons?! Maybe this would taste good on 45 degree day and you are dying for a drink, thatís it.

Rune (12597) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2007
Clear yellow body under a filmy layer. Lack of aroma and flavour except for notes of malt and some oily hints. Very thin mouthfeel (Bottle at a drinking session in TromsÝ, 06.09.2007).

2.4
mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2007
[575-20070901] 500mL. Light fish aroma is mostly light metallic straw. Clear, orange yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Flavour is light generic fruit, straw, more metallic grains, sweet corn and hints of hops. Light-medium body. Refreshing if cold (and while eating sushi).
