Brilliant golden color with great clarity. A trace of off white covers half of the top. Aroma is rice and a somewhat skunk note that seems to dissipate somewhat gradually. The taste is white rice. The mouth is crisp and yet a bit thin.

My first rice lager and I was not a fan. Its water with a faint hint of beer. If you are a light lager person or someone trying to expand there palate then I say go for it but for those who are looking for a full body tasting beer than I would tell you to pass on this beer.

A decent beer for the style, and better than some other macro rice lagers. Nothing special, but definitely refreshing in and inoffensive to enjoy with food. My first choice at hibachi and sushi joints.

Too much sweetness from the rice, otherwise tastes like a macro adjunct. Somewhat fond of this beer as it was always the beer half of the quintessential college "sake bomb" combination.
