Looks almost like an unfiltered wheat beer it is so cloudy.
Smells like a baseball stadium after an afternoon game in the summer - all the spilled coors, bud, and miller pooling together under the seats and evaporating - but in a good way.
Has some hints of grass & citrus balanced by just the right amount of hoppy bitterness. Goes down smooth and easy. Would be a beautiful just mowed the lawn kinda beer. Light and refreshing, but with enough complexity to make it interesting and without any of the off-putting taste so many american adjunct beers have.
A nice little experiment that shows you can use rice and still make a quaffable brew, but I personally would have enjoyed a little more intensity of flavor. Still a great beer overall.
