Asahi Super Dry (Japan) 5.0%
A lightly malty, lightly hopped aroma. Asahi pours a shade paler than full gold with a head of respectable. The taste is quite sweet, lightly malty (a bit like the way canned corn smells) and lightly bitter but with a more bitter than expected finish. Basically Asahi Super Dry is a typical international lager but I'd choose it over Budweiser or Molson Canadian if I was at a Yomiuri Giants game at the Tokyo Dome (and those beers were my only choices). Also it comes in a can that is frankly adorably small and perfect, I suppose, for the commuting salaryman.
