Served in a pint glass.

It's golden in color with a foamy white head. Very caronated.

It's a bit hoppy. The aroma isn't very strong.

It's a bit straw like. The beer has a pleasant bitterness.

It's fizzy and thin.

Overall, this beers ok. Not too memorable, but good enough.

Poured from a can into a pilsner, the beer is an extremely light, pale, clear, yellow coloring with a tall, foamy, light, white head. Roasty and grainy aromas, but light overall. Flavors are light, with a grainy profile, and a slight lemon highlight. The aftertaste is toasty and slightly cereal, with a crisp, clean finish. About what is expected from a rice brew.
