From the twist off bottle into my pilsener:

A: super light yellow colored body, two finger super foamy white head stays around for a good two minutes. There is fast rising carbonation. Some light lacing is left.

S: corn and rice adjuncts up front.

T: sweet with the corn and rice adjuncts up front, some hops are very faint in the background.

M: extremely light and there isn't any harshness on the tongue.

O: I haven't had many Japanese Rice lagers, but I guess its on par for the style. For me, I probably won't seek it out again, but if this was all that served, I could probably tolerate it for that night.

Looks quite nice in the Duvel chalice, though it's probably meant to be drunk from the can. Plenty of white head. Aroma is just a whiff of cereal, but at least not much cardboard.

Rather sharp. Not as metallic as some of these lo-fi brews. I don't think I mind it as much as others in the light sweepstakes. Even a little kiss of malt. Surprising touch of bitterness that actually tastes like hops. I don't think this is any worse than your average Mexican beer. That little hoppy zing brings this up a notch. Actually fairly drinkable.

From the 12 oz can.
