(Translated from the Japanese on the can) Weve used the delicious water and Koshihikari rice that Niigatas nature has provided and made this in a German-style decoction mash. This is a dry beer with a crisp palate and finish.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
honey aromas with light grassy notes. Pours clear blonde with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Flavor is very malty, richer flavor than i expected for a light lager. Nice honey malts upfront with bitter grassy hops. Finishes with a dry earthy bitter hop flavor.

Thank you jmgreenuk. 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Clear pale golden, little white head. Nose is mellow sweet paper, bread, sugar, neutral. Taste is dull cereal, sugar, rice, sugar, bland, neutral no bad notes. Quite bland, boring, hollow. Given that this is a German styled lager made with rice, this is pretty decent for what it is even it isnt all that good.
