330ml bottle. Weizen glass. Enjoyed on junĀ“13. Golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, good retention, some lacing left. Slight metal, grainy odor. Grainy upfront, quite fizzy. Light body. Moderate/high carbonation. Watery texture. Dried adjuncts, maybe corn & low bitterness in the middle. Dry finish. Sweet extract malt on the aftertaste. Boring !!

Pretty sure this is the one I have. Says Asahi Draft Beer Super Dry. 12oz bottle.

A- Poured into my new Gulden Draak tulip from the twist off bottle. The beer fills the glass with a superbly clear, light golden yellow body. The head is foamy and somewhat creamy and forms to a few fingers high. The foam doesn't stick around very long and falls to a white, thin pillow on the beer. With each drop, countless carbonation bubbles rise to the top. Tiny ring remains after a minute leaving a few small dots of lacing.

S- Really not a ton going on. The first sniff reminded me of Coors and other BMCs that I used to purchase in my college days. Just a tiny grain sweetness, some yeast and a bit of a grassy hint. Fades very quickly and it's hard to really grasp anything going on.

T- Almost impressively neutral, it tastes like a lightly lager, yeast bread flavored seltzer or something. Light grainy feel and lightly sweet. Hops are faint but present in the finish with grassy and spicy hints. Something reminds me of lemon just a tad.

MF- Super light and pretty dry with super high carbonation. The bubbles foam up a lot to create an airy texture and there is super weak bitterness in the finish.

Really nothing offensive like some of the American BMCs, impressively lacking flavor in a way. Hard to really kill this beer but it also doesn't leave you with much to say.
