Huhzubendah (2580) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! A: This brew appears clear (perhaps a very light haze) and yellow hued with a half inch of white, fluffy head. As the head slowly recedes, it leaves a nice trail of lacing in its wake. S: What can I say? It smells like a Japanese rice lager - slightly sweet, mild grain, a hint of a vegetal scent. T: A mediocre beer. The aroma and flavor are a tad bolder than what I have experienced in other macro produced lagers of this genre. Even so, my small glass was more than enough. M: Thin in body, with an adequate level of carbonation. The aftertaste is slightly odd. D: Fun to try, but not particularly enjoyable. While it wasnít terrible, I wonít be having this again.

Ratman197 (9874) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bomber poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, crackers, citrus, floral notes and light spicy hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of crackers, straw, floral notes and light citrus with a crisp dry finish.

(Bottle from Total Wine Summerlin). Pours clear straw yellow with a massive, chunky white head. Looks like an extra-light Light beer its so pale. Aroma is tartness, rice, bread. Taste is tart and a little bit of spice. Its almost berliner weisse-like. I canít believe that is intentional though. Very thin with a dry finish. This bottle wasnít bad, but again, I think something went wrong with this beer. Wrong in a good way.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Served in a snifter. Pours a pale straw-yellow color with the slightest bit of a white head and a bit of lacing. After that, adjuncts galore. The nose is sickening in its amount of old rice character. The taste doesnít make this any better--itís just a bit of plain white rice and a bit of off astringency in the finish. Light body with moderate carbonation and a terrible finish. Not a good beer and definitely not something Iíd have again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-26-2011

Bottle calls it a "Japanese Style Pilsener". Also, the name must stand for Night Fox. This is a mostly flat beer, not a lot of flavor one way or the other, just an okay beer. A little orangeish. Eh.
