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?

A - straw, light yellow

Smell - not much to the smell

T -not much taste, slight rice taste, crisp when cold

M - light and well carbonated

O - Nothing memorable about the beer, but it will do in a pinch on a hot day. Its best out of a ice cold cooler.
