Pint can pours a lightly Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of jasmine and a specific Asian citrus fruit which name I cannot place. Taste of sweet tea flavors and fruit, light yeast on finish. Pleasant and tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Just the right amount of spice without overpowering this crisp lager. A nice compliment to Chinese food but completely enjoyable on its own.

I usually don’t care for Lagers but the Asian Spices really ad a lot of flavor to the beer. Can’t wait to try it with sushi or as a saki bomb.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 Funk foot taste of a lager but with some spice to it. The spice makes it more enjoyable than a normal lager, but still a bit odd. Has a bit of a citrus and crisp taste. Could be refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Lakewood Location. Pour is clear straw with a big white head and great lacing. Fairly muted aroma - cereal, grain, lightly toasted, grass, and spice. Taste is pretty clean - lavender, dough, straw, grass, floral, and minerally with a crisp dry finish. Light body with high carbobation. Decent beer, but could have done without the "secret spices."

On tap at C2. Gold and clear appearance. A crisp and refreshing lager with spices, tea and light fruit. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter with an average body and a clean finish. Pretty tasty light lager.

On tap at Caution! poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of straw, citrus and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest and light spice with a crisp dry ligering lemon zest finish.

Tap at the brewery - a fairly simple, borderline boring lager - the rice is fairly evident, giving an almost watered-down sake kind of charcter to the beer - a mild honey sweetness and very subtle grainy character - a mild saffron note and some peppery spiciness, especially in the finish - pretty boring, even with the spice addition - oh well.

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2012
draft @ Denver Bicycle Cafe. filtered gold with a white head. "secret spices" comes across as strong lavender in nose and taste, and there are notes that come across as saffron. otherwise it’s fairly neutral and simple, the rice doesn’t exactly taste like much but the light body and almost-neutral pear/rice/sake character is present. medium acid, moderately rough carbonation and a lengthy potpourri/floral/lavender finish. too rough, too fizzy and abrasive, and over-spiced. ah well.
