17oz bottle pour, small beer glass. Pale yellow color, with little head, but lots of carbonation. Dry, crisp lager, paired great with sushi, and sriracha spice. No lingering bitterness like other Japanese premium beers.

Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 500 ml bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden - little to no head. Aroma has some light ripening fruit accents, a hint of yeast. Flavor is rather pedestrian with some biscuit-like maltiness, a touch of yeast, some light corny accents. Mouthfeel has a nice texture to it. Does in a pinch.

17 oz bottle. Pours pale straw with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of sweet malt and a hint of noble hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of herbal hops and sweet malt. Finish is long and dry. There is some taste in this brew.

Decent but not special uses rice as an afjunct but lacks much flavor or even the classic sushi beer crispness

Tried for the first time in Seattle. A decent rice beer. No real head or aroma. Crisp finish. Good with spicy food

Straw smell. Rice flavor, corn, dry peppery finish. A bit too watery but decent for a Japanese lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This brew pours a pale golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Grainy aroma with some hops behind it. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, floral hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Slightly below average overall.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. An almost good pale lager. Aroma still belies the nature, a weak, watery lager that isn’t focused on flavor. It’s exceedingly dry, which is fun, but there are still those messy, dirty fusel fruity lager notes that knock it down a bit. Lacks a crispness in three finish that builds drinkability.

A little different to your normal lager. Definitely has a better taste in my opinion.
