I am quite shocked to see the bad reviews. I love the dryness of this beer. To me it is better than Sapporo, though who can compete with the sturdiness of that can? Well, this is one of my favorite beers so wanted to give it a thumbs up. This minimum character ruling is annoying by the way!

This is a delicious change of pace.A nice crisp taste with little or no aftertaste.This beer offers little carbonation without any bloating.Slightly higher price than your average beer but your tastebuds and stomach will thank you for it.In my opinion give it at least a try!

Asahi Super Dry has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with a decent amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of indistinguishable grains and some slight sweetness. Taste is initially of malt, but then at the middle to the end of the sip one encounters a partially sweet alcohol flavor, and this is fairly bold. The aftertaste is grassy and stinging. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Asahi Super Dry finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and super dry. Overall, I really like this beer, and I recommend it.

I feel like I have to defend Super Dry a little. But I have to acknowledge that, for some reason, it is not good in the bottle. DO NOT buy Asahi Super Dry in a bottle, buy it in a can. Since it is a dry beer, it's taste and mouth feel are different and less sweet than usual, which makes it an ideal pairing with salty foods, especially East Asian cuisines. Served cold it is a great summer time thirst quencher as well.
