I'm very surprised with this beer. It gives a great lava lamp cloudy look to it and gives a pretty strong aroma for a light looking beer. I instantly get a strong smell of rice like if you were to stick your nose in white rice you'd get from a Chinese place. That white rice smell mixes in with a fruitiness that reminds me of lemons with some sweetness from the malt. This such an easy drinking beer its almost impossible to drink slow. For a lighter beer it has an amazing mouthfeel to it that's almost creamy. I get a spicy bite from the hops then that rice and sweetness in the middle and ending with that lemon fruitiness some wheat husk and I'm pretty sure some spicy Noble hops that gives a smooth bitterness. I wish I had more of this one... this would be my go to lighter beer style.
