Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. Pours dark straw orange with a white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of weak grain not much else. Tastes of watery grain, but with a tad of fruitiness. Beer is heavily carbonated and light bodied. Overall an ok beer.

Purchased at the LCBO for $1.35 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well. Pours and looks like a mass produced beer

S- Rice and sugar

T- Rice and sugar.

M- Dry like a rice beer should be. Tart too believe it or not

O- Pretty good beer. Like a Sapporo.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: sweetish malt with a little bit of an adjuncty and plasticy character. A bit bland; not the worst thing in the world, though.

Taste: like the aroma, there's not a lot going on in the flavor department past a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of bitterness. I would not go so far as to say there is any hop flavor, though. It's not disgusting, but it doesn't really appeal to me.

Mouthfeel: light body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this beer is uninspiring to me, but it's also not terrible. It's hot out today, which is contextually appropriate, but even that doesn't strongly help its drinkability.

A: Clear, light gold color, with half a finger of white head; lacing is nil.

S: Grassy notes, with faint grain aromas. Hints of floral hops. Nothing powerful here.

T: There's a brief moment of sweet and bready malt, but if you blink you'll miss it. It's followed by another brief moment of tartness, then a mild but lingering bitterness from slightly spicy hops takes over through the finish.

M: Moist, but nicely carbonated. Refreshing, with a hint of dryness. By far, the mouthfeel is the best attribute of this beer.

O: Decent for what it is: A thirst-quenching lager designed to cool you down on a hot day, or pair with a salty, spicy bowl of Vietnamese phở noodle soup.
