22 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with a half inch white head that stuck around a little while. There's also a decent amount of lacing. Not much to the aroma, the brew smells like sweet malt and some light breadiness. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, it's sweet and bready, but also has a bit of bitterness in the finish. Also has a flavor that reminds me of Budweiser. Not sure if it's from the rice, but there's just something similar about it to me. Mouthfeel/body is light, it has a good amount of carbonation and it's easy enough to drink. For what it is, it's not a bad brew at all. I'd just have to be in a certain mood to drink this again, it's certainly not an every day beer for me. It's worth a try if you've never had it before.
