This was one of my souvenirs from my wife and daughter's recent trip to Japan. They thought this would be a good one to bring back for me to try with its limited distribution.

Poured this beer into my original Hoffbrau glass and admired the deep golden color and white creamy head, which was turned to a lace around the glass in not too long.

A balance of hops and malt in the aroma (I am not sure I am familiar enough with rice to pick that up in the aroma?) ...some harshness in the taste, but generally a decent albeit nondescript beer. I would have no trouble with a couple of pints of this.

It certainly went well with the tacos that I had...so a Japanese beer in a German glass with Mexican food. My international night.

Overall, good. Had this while saki bombing, and for the situation it is a great beer. Something to have some fun with. Not bitter as i remember, and not really a beer to sip on. More of a beer for downing to get woosted. I was also a little surprised, i had lower expectations from a Japanese import.
