Wild Rice pours into the glass a nice, some what light, copper color. There is a nice foamy head that last for a reasonable amount of time, with a bit of lacing along the sides of the glass. There is an odd smell, which I can't figure out: a first there is a whif of yeast, the a metallic aroma, and then what must be spice. The taste is very similar to the smell, with a metallic-spice, sensation. A pleasant enough mouthfeel, but sadly the metallic flavor lingers on the tongue. I can't say that I would recommend this as a first choice, if other reasonable options are available.

A: Clear yellow-amber in color with virtually no head, not even a surface coating.

S: Bread. Light yeast, some grains and a little alcohol.

T: Grains and brown rice. A faint nuttiness and maybe even some cream. Some minimal hops on the ass end. Very short finish.

M: Light with medium carbonation.

D: Not much more going on here than an adjunct lager. Simplistic and while it does offer some benefits over your typical macro, there simply isn't much flavor or aroma. Really, about an average a beer as you can get.
