UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 On tap in Thailand. Pours a light yello and small head. Aroma is light and hoppy. Taste is not bad but hard to place. Not as bad as I expected.

Bottle 330ml. Boring, but not offensive. Aroma is floral, and taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Thin and watery in the palate. Yellow, with a fizzy white head.

330ml bottle. Aroma of toasted rice and cilantro. Pours golden yellow. Tastes like rice and pale malts, grassy hops. Easy to drink. Not what anyone really looks for in a mind blowing flavorful brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle, best before July 14, 2010. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both average. Aroma is sweet malt and grain/adjuncts, not much else. Taste is the same as the aroma, it’s all malt/grain/adjuncts. However, there aren’t any offensive aromas/flavors at all. Mouthfeel/body is light, and also crisp. Drinkability isn’t awful, it’s not exactly enjoyable to drink but it’s not bad to drink either. For the style, it’s a decent enough brew. I’ve certainly had worse!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Spice in atlanta. Just what I had expected. Clear yellow with some white head. No offensive notes, but nothing particularly enjoyable either. Not particularly refreshing. But goes well enough with pad thai. Blah.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a six pack of this from Sawall Health Foods – nice to be able to get your liver supplements and beer in one stop. Expectations were low but this proved surprising good. Pour from an 11.5 oz bottle was medium gold tone with two fingers of dense head. Good head retention and lively carbonation make up for an otherwise thin palae. Pleasant aroma dominated by light aromatic hops. Flavor is clean and refreshing, but still somewhat complex. Interesting graininess at the start – no doubt the rice / malt combination – and very satisfying hops blend in the finish. fishi is a great mixutre of aromatic hoppiness that is nicely dry and bitter at the final end, with no linering aftertast. The flavor is actually rather unique and it does not slot well into any kind of style, but it is tasty and good.

pours a clear golden yellow with heavy carbonation. While there doesn’t appear to be much of a head, the carbonation is rather taxing on the palate. Nose is of bitter hops and some other sort of grain (I think I get rice out of this one); yes its rather ricey. Flavor is mild with a combination of bitterness and greens (like beans or something). Its actually rather unpleasant. Too much carbonation.
