Bottle from BevMo in La Jolla, California. Pours to an effervescent golden body with a bubbly coating white head. Aroma of crisp corn silage. Flavors are clean macro like corn silage with light toffee and subtle sulfur. But, surprisingly clean and crisp. Drinkable. Palate is crisp.

ffbot (328) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Out of a bottle smell of damp bitter grain and funky yeast. Taste follows. Nice and strong, bitter and biting carbonation. Actually has a fucking flavor here unlike many. I liked it

Bottle. Clear yellow/golden with a medium sized diminishing white head. Hay, grain and flowers in the nose. Flavour has flowers, almost perfumy, then grain, dry grass and hay. Fine carbonation, low sweetness, fine bitterness. Dry finish. More flavour than I expected and pleasant bitterness.

Shared bottle. Pale golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of cereal and stale grass Mildly sweet and bitter finish. A pretty typical macro lager - guess I’m not a ’demanding connoisseur’.

Aroma: lightly lager-like; nothing special; Appearance: golden straw, clear pour with thin, white head; Taste: follows nose; nothing objectionable but not good; Palate: light body with long, corny finish; Overall: glad to get the country tick but noting else to recommend about it.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to ChrisO. Bright clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has mild fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, some paper. Traces of floralness and citrus. More paper. Light semi dry finish. About what you would expect, but I remember it tasting better in the stifling hear of Tahiti.

HuskerTan (1560) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle. A- Straw, cereal, corn. A- Yellow color, yellow liquid, white head. T- Buttered sweet corn, straw, stale bread. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish. O- Still not sure why I grabbed this over the many Japanese craft beers I could have chosen from. I guess the desire for a new country tick and liking the bottle label is too strong...or I’m too stupid. This was pretty awful. Sorry people of Tahiti, stick to cocktails.
