2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Smells and tastes like an adjunct lager, possible a little light struck funk to go with it. Pale golden with musty grain aroma (rice?). Taste is more grain, export lager quality.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. And it’s a crappy and cheap export lager. It tastes stale and a little sweet with little real character to it. A bit of corn and bleh.

Golden color with a white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma has grassy notes, light malts and hay. Light maltiness with a light sweetness. Watery on palate.

Piwo ryżowe i ten aromat i smak jest wyczuwalny, słodkie orzeżwiające. Łagodna goryczka. Pijalne ale brakuje mu charakteru. Pite z butelki.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An interesting rice beer. Pours an ugly pee yellow with a white head. Smells a bit of sweet rice and sake. Taste is more creamy then expected, with a sweet rice throughout. Nice finish. Paired with Thai shrimp rolls, more sweetness and a bit of ginger is brought out. Had in the bottle. 997

It’s a lager. Little else to say. Light malts, a bit of sweetness. Refreshing but not too memorable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Bottle at The General, 8/30/14
Aroma: The aroma is similar to most pale lagers, slightly sweeter, light hop, notes of rice
Appearance: It pours a golden-orange color with a fairly small head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is light as well, with a bit of sweetness, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light with plenty of carbonation, not as watery as many of the pale lagers around
I thought this was a pretty decent example example of a pale lager. It has more flavor than many in the style, and comes off as less watery as well. Not a great beer, but you could do a lot worse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant aroma of grain malt, caramel, subtle hops and biscuit. Appears gold with no foam. Taste is malty sweetness, creamy caramel, biscuit malt and toasted grains. Overall, very simple yet refreshing. Tastes very similar to Kirin Ichiban.
