Pours a cloudy golden color with a fruity aroma. Taste is semi sweet with a citrus, grassy taste that dissipates after you swallow. There is a slight hay taste as well, maybe its the rice. Overall a good tasting beer that is both refreshing and easy drinking.

Crisp and refreshing. Nothing to write home about but tasty on a hot day. Good carbonation, attractive golden hue, and just a bit of hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bestway shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of grainy, dusty malts, sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts, mild green hops. Medium bodied.

Hazy, cloudy amber pour. Mild aroma. Decent for the class. Drinkable but nothing special

This has got to be the cleanest american standard on the market. Although it says its made with rice, there is not much adjuncty nonsense going on in the flavor...there is no alcohol bite that you get from some cheap lagers..in fact, it tastes really really light...a beer for people that don't like beer, i suppose..4.5% is a little low, but what the hell are you going to do. This is definitely a beer that i will come back to.

Bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a small white head that fades. Sweet aroma, of yeast, sugar, malt. Taste also has a rather nice sweetness, with a hint of hops, and a lot of sugar, grass, yeast. Lingering crisp sweetness. Better than I thought it would be.

Had this is Taiwan airport. With a can like that, how could you not. Actually, not too bad for a LA pale lager. Pretty clean and full malt flavor with a lightly floral hop note and a crisp finish. Fairly full malt flavor compared to other swill. Not too shabby.

One look at the can and I was in love. The can design gives this beer its character, nothing comes from the taste. Taste is your usual cheap, thin beer. I’d like to decorate my apartment in the same style as the can though...

Pours gold with a white head. Aromas of bread and noble hop. Nar med body. Flavor is bready, a little grapey (?), with a nice amount of bitter. Pretty good lager. Drinks well.
