Massachusetts

2.75/5  rDev -10.1%

Pours clear and gold with a fluffy white head.

Smells slightly malty

Taste- Not much there. Some malts and grain. A little bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel- Light, a little watery.

Overall- Better than Hite, Cass, and Cafri thats for sure. Not great though.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear golden colored body. Live up to the name.
The aroma is not great: metallic and ricey.
The taste has a smooth sweetness and balanced pretty well with the mildest lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp with soft edges.
It's not bursting with flavor, but its not bad (aside from the smell).

A: Pale golden color. Forms a fizzy white head that quickly fizzes away. No lacing.

S: Aroma is of faint malts and grains. Brown rice. And just a hint of earthy hops.

T: Taste is thin, but at least there is a something there and it's not digesting. Very mild caramel malts, brown rice, kraft paper. Quick, clean finish.

M: Light bodied. Medium carbonation. No bitterness.

O: Purchased this one along with a Hite Ice Point to go with a Korean meal I was making. Figured if I was going through the trouble to cook Korean, I might as well drink it well (and didn't feel like going the shochu route). While this is not a terribly impressive beer, it was certainly the better of the two.

This beer is very simple in a very bad way.

The flavor is somehow simultaneously sweet and bland. This beer tastes very grainy and watered down. This isn't something that I would purchase again or think to grab when i just wanted something to enjoy. It probably goes well with korean food but as a stand alone it's really disappointing .
