New to Suntory’s new genre line-up is Suntory Gran Dry, just released to the masses last month, and just in time for hanami season in Japan. In the glass it’s got your basic straw color, nothing unique about it. Taking the first gulp, it had some nice refreshing effervescence right off the bat. There’s malt with just a hint of bitterness at the end. The finish tastes clean and dry, true to label.
Suntory Gran Dry is a decent beverage, nothing exciting, just good taste to price ratio, if you’re looking for your standard Japanese lager replacement.
