Pours a nice light amber color with decent head retention. The smell had some hops to it, but also what seemed like cooked rice and little bit of oak. The flavor was a little underwhelming with most of the flavor being in the aftertaste. The beginning has a bit of bread flavor while finish has a bit of hop bite that lingers. Not bad, but nothing great either.
