Found this the other day at La Bodega in Riverside. I was curious about this Great Beer Company but they don't even have this on their website. The bottle says that its brewed by them and only brewed for Sushi Roku. The Sushi Roku website lists this as their own brew.

The beer pours a very light clear yellow color. Very characteristic and typical of japanese beers (atleast from the few that I've tried). The foam is stark white and only lasts a few seconds.

The smell is very mild but pleasant and not distracting. It makes sense that one would drink this with sushi as the light qualities compliment delicate foods like fish. The little smell that is there is alright but again, very weak.

The flavor is pilsner and rice. No hops no anything else. Not quite as good as Kirin, not quite as dry as Asahi. Reminds me of the regular Sapporo, not that awful harvest version.

Drinkable but if you're an ale drinker like me, this is almost a waste of time. Have one with dinner if you're into enjoying expensive seafood.
