look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

Nose, almost nothing...busy getting fizz popped up at my nose like a soda, not off to a good start...slight half cooked rice scent.

Color, pale straw, can see straight through it.

Taste, very watery and very fizzy like a bad soda, kills a lot a lot of flavor comprehension...maybe thats the idea. rice flavor after you get through the fizz and on the aftertaste especially...(surprise its almost half rice)

Palate, sits like water...feels a little oily after several.

overall, god awful, poor quality ingredients and its half rice...what is rice doing so heavy in a beer?
