2.05/5  rDev -27.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

In my father-in-law's fridge for the holiday... so why not?

Appearance: Pours light yellow - very pale and clear.

Smell: Grainy. The scent could probably pass for an American Macro Lager. Nothing impressive at all (but nothing offensive either.)

Taste: There's not much to the taste. I could tell right away that rice is the primary adjunct here. The flavor is grainy with a very dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, but quite fizzy.

Drinkability: I'm left unsatisfied with a dry mouthfeel. If anything, it makes me crave a good winter holiday brew.

Overall: Maybe this could be a beer for your guests who swear by the beers that they see on commercials during football games - perhaps served with Japanese cuisine. Actually, just save some money and buy an American Macro Lager. Or better still, offer something with flavor and let's your friends bring the 30-packs if they'd like :-D

2.53/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

Pours a lager-like clear and golden color with about two fingers of medium head that quickly settles down.
There is a faint grainy and malty aroma which is basically all about the smell.
The taste is light and slightly watery, sweet and grainy, finishing with a bit of bittery feel.
Not bad, not good. Drinkable.
