2.25/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a very thin yellow with lots of carbonation, though little to no head remains after a minute or so. Pale straw, starch, and rice in the nose with only the faintest hop spice...yep, this is a "rice lager" all right.

Taste is...ok, I suppose if you want something cold, fizzy, and beer-y to go with food or pub snacks. The rice and starch have really cut the taste of the malt, and there is much of a hop presence.

Serving type: can
