12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw with heavy-duty carbonation and a soapy white head that had better retention than I'd have guessed. Leaves decent lacing.

Aroma: Smells like rice cooker water and farts. Not super appealing.

Taste: The front and back ends of this beer are quite different. The initial taste kind of smells like someone whizzed in the rice cooker. However, the finish is nice and dry, as advertised - I'll give them that.

Mouthfeel: It's pretty watery. It's hot as heck in Japan in the summer and I can see a beer of this depth coming in handy.

Overall: It was neat seeing this beer in seemingly every third vending machine I encountered in Tokyo. It's not really appealing to me, though. I'd like to find out exactly how much rice they use in this puppy, because it tastes like a lot, but their website suggests it isn't. There's almost no malt backbone or hop presence at all. It's kind of like Budweiser, which is fitting, because it's the Budweiser of Japan.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a beautiful clear copper color under a white film of suds after the head recedes. The aroma is straight forward and simple with earthy grains and rice. The taste is also simple and clean. Sweetness from rice adjuncts and a dryness from subdued grassy notes. Finishes clean.

Overall, I think this is above average compared to other rice lagers I've tried.
