from bottle. Aroma is straw. Pours pale yellow with thin head and lots of carbonation. First sip is sweet straw with almost cough medicine aftertaste. Almost easy to drink but I get hung up on the straw/syrup finish. Probably be good with sushi?

Light, gentle flavors and aromas with some floral grassy character and the dry finish I’d expect with the use of rice in the brewing. Would make a great combination with food in a traditional Japanese restaurant.

like to describe this as Japanese guinness. While it’s not as full bodied and flavorful, it’s certainly smooth, easy to drink and pretty tasty.love it ,one the best.

rikstar (1228) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
0,33l fles in amsterdam bij de ah. Goudgeel smaak en geur met een degelijke moutbasis. Zeker geen verkeerd pils

Bottle, pours golden with a white head. Soft and sweet. Yet another unremarkable industrial lager.

60minuteman (1004) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Yellow in color. Pale malts and fruity hop. Does have some bite. Mild citrus component. Pretty good actually. It can hold up to the best of lagers.

panzerwolf (167) - FINLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Pours clear gold. A slight bite to the first taste, then blends into caramel, rice malts and corn. Some carbonation, so it does give a fizzle. Easy enough a beer to drink, alright.

Iznogud (1318) - CROATIA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from Lidl, Zagreb. Pours golden with white head. Malty sweetish, light bitterness. Actually drinkable and better than expected.

Not a great wrap for rice brewed beer but seems to gell well with the Japanese food. And Julie definitely likes it!
