Served in a Dogfish Head shaker pint glass.

Let's just dive in for a rice lager, eh? This stuff pours a clear straw topped by a half-finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises hard water, wet grass, a hint of plastic, and a tiny and evanescent whiff of egg. The taste brings in more of the same, the egg thankfully a momentary bit of madness that never recurs. Still, not much goodness to be found here. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, this stuff just isn't for me. Rice, barley: it don't matter when it has to be served ice cold to enjoy it.

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.
