N: Grainy and husky earthyness with some grass/hay and yeasty notes.

Pale gold champagne colour, steady bead. Head is white and foamy, pretty decent density. Nice lace.

Grain, rice and pearl barley on the nose. Hint of grassy, European hops, but mostly grain, and pretty bland.

Taste is based on cereal grain, notes of puffed rice and pearl barley, but finishes early, some grassy, slightly soapy hop notes. Very clean, finishes dry, crisp; lagery you might say. Actually tastes alright. Not very interesting but pleasant

Decent if a little thin body, bit of fizz, finishes dry enough.

Decent crisp lager. Overall pretty uninspiring, but plenty drinkable.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light yellow amber with a thin white cap that has decent retention with slight lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light sweet apple juice and a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is light sweet malt with a minerally bitterness that eventually resolves as light grassy hops. An unusual light bland sweetness that may be the rice components. Light bodied. A pleasant light lager that is milder and slightly sweeter than a domestic adjunct lager. Bland and harmless, tasted pretty good on a hot summer day. My one hundredth style on BA.

Poured a clear pale yellow with a one finger fluffy white head that quickly dissipated to a thin ring of lacing. It's not the best looking beer, but it's very true to the style. Scents of lager yeast, some moderate hop character, and grainy malt. Flavor begins with a moderate level of floral hop bitterness and some grainy malt in the background. This moves into more nice dry grainy malt flavors with a balance of floral hop bitterness. Finish is dry with a nice grainy dryness and floral hop bitterness. Aftertaste is dry with floral hop flavors. A nice flavor profile, quite dry, grainy and with a good level of hop bitterness. Quite pleasant to drink as a result. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a drying feel. Very refreshing, easy to drink and wonderful on a warm day. Overall this is a good Japanese Rice Lager that has a nice dry flavor character, a classic aroma profile for the style and a wonderfully refreshing mouthfeel. It's not the best beer around, but for it's style it is a fantastic drink.
