Hazy bronze colour with a thick creamy head of foam. A grassy hop smell. Taste is of grain and a nondescript bitterness that does remind me of grass but more of an earthiness going on. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Good.

Crispy and sharp all the way through. Little sweet hint of the same type of rice you'd taste in a better Sake. Carbonation was present but not at all overwhelming. Really enjoyed the dry earthy after taste. I could easily put this down with a sushi roll and enjoy the complimenting flavorings. In a nutshell it like was a bastard child of a wheat or Sake and an ale, I had no problem giving it a home with me.
