Had this with my sushi tonight, was pleasantly suprised
Poured an effervescent golden with a 2 fingers-deep head. Average head retention & a little lacing
S: Slight sweet rice/malt smell
T: Malt sweetness up front, then dryness. Finishes sweet with slight floral hops crispness
MF: Light, medium with vigirous, but not overdone carbonation, skews a little too sweet balance-wise
Drank pretty easy, certainally a cut above BMC & went well with the sushi, the 2, 12 oz bottles went down easy

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.
