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?

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coming in a very distinctive shiny silver can, it certainly stands out in the off licence.
Appearance: The appearance was of a lovely clean looking golden yellow colour, with a pretty good white frothy head on pour
Head does die a little, no real lacing
Nice carbonation, bubbling along throughout.
Is definitely a nice looking beer, even if the head is non existent.
Aroma: Not trying to be funny but thought it smelt of shite, ha ha, now I know that’s obviously the sweet rice mixed around with the hops, grains and sweet malts. but Jesus I didn’t like the smell one bit at all, very stinky smell, bit of a generic beer smell too, Japanese style, but not very appealing.
Faint initial taste of the malts , not much to saviour, but very clean and smooth, very easy to drink
Taste only really kicks in at the back end, with the rice and the grassy hops kicking in
Has a slight kick to it alright, can definitely feel the alcohol, sweet and bitter, but not overbearing.
Ok beer, not a bad beer, nothing offensive, not much taste, but very smooth and easy to drink, but it would be nice to actually taste some real flavours.......something......anything at all....come on! And not just a bland generic taste of nothingness

22oz can 5/5/16 (Jewel-Osco Clearance Rack)-40° in Mug-Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweetness, corn and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad as I was expecting worse.

Poured from the bottle. A rather malty smelling and tasting beer. Not good, not bad, mediocre beer.

Can, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a pale golden color, perfectly clear with lots of little bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass, it’s got a very well retained and attractive fluffy white head.
The aroma is a little tinny and mostly sweet & doughy with a little bit of herbal character to it.
The flavor is fine, I mean it tastes like a above average industrial lager. It’s got a nice bit of herbal bitterness and a pretty defined rice flavor, it’s a touch sweet... but not horribly so, it’s also got a mild fruitiness to it. Honestly the hop character here really carries this beer, it’s pleasant and bitter and just mutes some of the less desirable flavors a touch.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A nice big can without information about the hops and malts.
A golden clear beer without character with a nice white head, the body is thin, light bitter, no smell, no finish,
(I have a 0.65l can with batch 0127 and best-before date 16OCT16.)
