Asahi Super Dry – Rice Lager (5%) - Asahi Brewing Co. (Japan)
App: Pours a crystal clear golden color with a slight dingy looking off white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing, but does boast some okay retention around the edges of the glass. Darker than a lot of american lagers.
Smell: Nose is grainy and firmly cereal with some high, grassy sweetness and just a hint of maltiness coming through. Slightly metallic smelling, bouquet is low.
Taste: Clean, grain like sweetness with mild bitterness that is fairly well balanced against the overall sweet nature of this beer. A little vegetal, with a mild metallic finish. Slight toasted flavor as beer warms slightly. Not a complex beer by any means, but certainly drinkable. Not as sweet or metallic as a lot of american lagers.
Mouth: Carbonation is extreme and somewhat stinging. Beer is incredibly light bodied with some slight lingering bitterness and sweetness that are pleasant.
Disclaimer: Not brewed in Japan, much to my chagrin it was brewed in Canada. Doh!
Home tasting, 12oz bottle into snifter. 2/18/14.
Serving type: bottle
