COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looking for something a little different? Brewed with rice and barley malts, Samurai is an easy drinking, unfiltered ale that changes the status quo for unfiltered beers. The addition of rice gives Samurai a slightly fruity, crisp, refreshing and clean taste. This is definitely not your everyday unfiltered beer.

Light and hazy look, not much head. Aroma of fruit/citrus. Taste is pretty unremarkable - light with a little hops in the aftertaste. Nothing offensive, but not something I’d go out of my way for.

Draught at tap room for Great Divide, visited on October 7, 2012
Hazy pale straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Light acidic fruity scent. Sweet, acidic, herbal taste. Sweet, cream, herbal aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a hazy pale straw yellow with an average (1-2 fingers) white frothy head, which receded down to a thin cap and created some excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light pale grain malt, a mild grassy hop and light musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a mild adjunct presence (rice), a slight hint of vanilla and a mild fruity ester. The taste was a bit sweet with a good grain malt presence early on, and then became mildly bitter with a note of citrus and a bitter adjunct ending. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a lightly sweet and creamy grainy taste that was left to fade. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery/creamy texture and a mild carbonation. Overall a brew that has a firm handle on subdued taste, although it was malty- sweet with bitter-smooth feel and possessed a good drinkability...

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Light malt with a nice sweetness and a pretty good hop flavor: citrusy and fresh. The cooked corn flavor is basically not present, compared to the aroma. There’s also a bizarre minty finish, probably due to the hops. A pretty interesting beer, to say the least.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2012
On tap at Rattle N Hum, July 2012. Clear golden with a medium white head. Nothing to write home about. Some tutti-frutti, spices and malt. Short aftertaste. Very easy to drink.

The rice really came through in the aroma, and offers a light, and uniquely flavored beer.

On tap at Great Divide. Pours light. Fizzy head. Rice and dry. Slight bitterness. Not a big fan of this one.

Tap - good size foamy head, very pale straw color, sweet malt/rice aroma, pretty bland overall

This is a simple beer, but sometimes all you need is something cold, crisp, and refreshing. Sometimes you are in an unairconditioned 100 year old clock tower at a wedding on the 4th of July (for example) and a bottle of this is everything you want and need. A portable oasis in your hands. This will be my go to for those hot summer nights (which are becoming more regular it seems here in Denver).

Nephilium (1495) - Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Mild aroma, with just a touch of floral notes. Pours a clear golden with just a dusting of white head. The flavor is floral, with an astringent quality, and a fruity note that doesn’t mesh well. It’s light on the palate and easy to drink. I’m just not a fan of the beer, the off note is off-putting.
