2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a good lacing. The mild aroma was alcohol musty and malt hop. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strange bubbly flavor contained notes of acidity. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Poured a golden to hazy yellow with huge white head. My wife was pissed off by the skunk smell that filled the bedroom when I cracked this, very pungent mold as well. Taste is spice, sour corn and grain. The finish is very bitter. I’m hoping that this is bad because the style didn’t hold up over time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden color out of the bottle with a frothy white head. Light wheat and earthy yeast in the nose. Some lemon grass, wet hay and nice yeast notes in the taste. Dry beer. I really don’t know what the rice and mirin add here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours a hazy straw color, smells yeasty and grassy. It tastes of light, sweet, pils malt with a bubbly body and a yeasty, dry character that reminds me of saisons. Okay.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy of, "AKfaust". Colour... light straw with a thick off white head. Nose... grass, light citrus and iodine (the seaweed I’m guessing). Palate... starts off fresh and light with some mild citrus, hops and honey then rapidly becomes a metallically laden palate wrecker reminiscent of too much zinc in the diet! It is a very rare occasion that finds me disappointed with an MSBC beer, but this is one of those occasions! Where’s my Berserker?! I need to cleanse my palate!!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Tap] Tried this at the brewery in mid-September. Clear golden pour includes a small amount of head. Aroma of thin floral hops and what I suspect is sake yeast. Smells a little like malt liqour actually. Pilsner malt backbone, with vegetal hops and rice. A simple flavor profile really. After the initial aroma, I was a little worried about this one, but it turns out OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at City Beer Store. Bright clear golden in color with a one finger white head and great lacing. Very nice aroma of grassy and floral hops with a touch of pale malt. The flavor is like a good hoppy pilsner with an interesting twist. I can taste the seaweed, as it’s a bit briny and leafy. Good pilsner malt base with grassy hop bitterness and a bit of rice. Good light body and crispness that you want from a pilsner. Really good overall with a nice unique twist to it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2011 22 oz bottle. Clear pale yellow with a small white head and visible carbonation. Light aroma of pils malt, herbal hops and a faint brine. The flavor is light malt with a mellow bitterness for balance. Light body with active carbonation and a thin mouth feel. Well, this is pretty much just solid light pils, I only get a faint hint of seaweed in the aroma. There is a light residual sweetness which is surprising considering what a light beer it is and that they used sake yeast.
