There are worse things out there from other Asian countries that are only available in green bottles, but definitely not recommending this for anybody to purchase

Golden yellow in color with good clarity. Poured with a thick, soapy, bright white foam with excellent retention. Light aromas of cereal and sweet apples. No hop aromas. Medium light bodied with high carbonation. Despite the thin feel a light creaminess manages to show from the middle to the end. Dull fruit flavors up front followed by medium light hop bitterness and an acidic carbonic bite. Finished dryly with lingering fruit flavors. Light on flavor, feel, and character. Lingering fruit flavor hurts the sessionability of this.

This is a good beer. I don't understand the low score. It is super refreshing on a warm day. I think it's well balanced and there's just enough hop flavor there to be interesting, and just the right amount of bitterness. Good stuff when you just want a simple, clean, crisp rice beer.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a nonic pint glass. Pale straw-colored body, with an aggressive pour yielding three fingers of fluffy white head that disappeared rather quickly into a thin ring. Not much aroma or flavor when cold, but as it warmed some notes of grass and a bit of pleasant bitterness began to come through. Mouthfeel is light, and the finish is insanely dry as advertised. Not a great beer, but nowhere near as bad as the ratings would suggest. As always, YMMV.
