Love the sweet maltiness off this beer, super refreshing pairing to spicy Asian cuisine. This beer really suits my palate and comes across extremely well.

One of my favourite beers, my score will reflect this.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose—corn seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell and has stronger flavors of rice adjuncts along with a little sweetness and faint amounts of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that bad for the style because there are no "off" flavors.
