Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tasting cup.
The color is a clear yellow/orange with a slight wisp of white foamy that disappears quickly. Looks a lot like ginger ale.
The smell has a strong rice smell. There is a big of a corn aroma with some slight touches of some pilsner malts.
The taste is has slight malt flavor that is surrounded by more rice and corn flavor throughout. There may be a small bitterness that is given at the very end.
This beer does not thrill but it does have a smooth feel that seems to slide across the tongue and goes down with little effort.

Poured from the green bottle into a pint glass. A super pale straw yellow brew, maybe just a hair darker than some American examples of the adjunct lager, with the expected foaming white bubbles filling the glass. Beer remains fizzy and effervescent throughout. Smells grainy and slightly tangy, rank waterlogged barley and no trace of corn sweetness ... Rice is king here, astringent, crisp, and clean other than the aforementioned wet grain notes. Palate benefits from a cold temperature, drink up quick. Some tangy lemon rind and grape flavors, vaporous and fleeting, followed by old grain mill or malt liquor, a little like Singha but no where near as flavorful. Some medicinal aspirin and a sour metallic tang throughout. Plastic flavors emerge as the beer warms. Somewhat skunky, another feature that unfortunately gains salience over time. Stripped down. Far less sweet than most American adjunct beers. Finishes dry and with an unexpected American hop currant twang (but this feature is decidedly subtle). Meets expectations. This beer may very well complement Chinese food but that ain't going to bump up my ratings.
