look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The beer pours a very pale yellow color with a foamy white head. the smell is almost non-existent, I just noticed grain and a slight grass smell. Not much taste at all either, just a hint of grain and lemon. Very light with lots of carbonation and it actually is pretty dry. I could see this being refreshing on a hot day, not much else going on though.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: thin head on pale golden body.

S: sweet corn and a touch tangy with earthy and grain notes.

T: watery overall with light pale malts, strange slightly pungent semisweet finish.

M: light body and high carbonation. dry finish as advertised.

Overall: Just a beer. Nothing special but the members of this genre are pretty much all the same.

Asahi Dry... Part of my "Let's try random beers from around the world"

A-Typical adjunct pour. Crystal clear darkish yellow color with a half finger super short lived snow white head. Lacing is spotty.

S- Sweet grains, slight earthy aroma, I'm actually getting a touch of cooked rice. It's not offensive, just blah...

T- Cooked rice, slight cereal with a touch of boiled cabbage? land, typical adjunct. Again, not offensive just bland.

M- Clean, crisp, and slightly refreshing.

O- When you think of Japan you think of many things; Ninjas, Mt. Fuji, large doe eyed animated characters. No one ever thinks beer, I mean there are several Japanese breweries but they aren't known for their liquid libations (except maybe Sake)
