Standard-looking lager beer with more head than most average macro-brews. On the nose there are subtle notes of barley, wheat and hops. Taste reflects the smell of the beer. Overall a light, light-bodied and refreshing beer if drank cold.

Had that strange sweetness to it. The sweetness you get from chewing rice for a long time.
However, bland, nothing really special about it. Better than your usual BMC.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a big frothy white head.

Aroma: Clean, vaguely sweet. Some cereal grains.

Taste: Good old cold, clean lager. Inoffensive. Refreshing. Somewhat grassy and cereal grainy. Decent malt presence for style.

Mouthfeel: Easy, light lager. Quaffable.

Overall: What Kingfisher is to curry and Dos Equis is to burritos, this beer is to sushi. Stop fussing and party down with some inari and a Sapporo.

L - boring but slightly frothy head.

S - weakest aspect of this beer. Slight rice grain.

T - surprisingly creamy on draft. Hint of banana in addition to the rice and other bullshit.

F - pillowy and fluffy. Draft is best.

O - way better on draft than out of the can.

A: Pale golden-straw color, with soapy white head.
S: Ricey maltiness.
T: It tasted of ricey maltiness, very sweet, normal American-style lager flavor.
M: Slicker than American adjuncts. But, sufficiently similar.
O: Overall, while this is not a good or original beer by any means. I enjoy the slickness and the more appropriate ricey malt flavor over competitors like Miller and Bud.
