Looking for something a little different? Brewed with rice and barley malts, Samurai is an easy drinking, unfiltered ale that changes the status quo for unfiltered beers. The addition of rice gives Samurai a slightly fruity, crisp, refreshing and clean taste. This is definitely not your everyday unfiltered beer.

hotstuff (4947) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rated on 12-09-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small white fizzy head with short retention, transparent/slightly hazy pale yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is rice, crisp and fruity. The Taste mimics the Aroma and it has a dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, I did not enjoy the flavor of this beer as the rice just does not jive with the rest of the beer and thus this is a beer I will not seek out or recommend.

One of my least favorite Great Divide beers. I wanted to like it. Im always excited to see great brewers experiment, especially when they go lighter. This beer, unfortunately, has an awkward palate, grainy with an overly mild character.

July 2010. From bottle. Cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Fruit, malt and grassy aromas. Interesting ale, but not my kind.

Hazy light golden pour. Good carbonation. Medium bodied with some citrus and floral hops. A decent but not really good beer.

Something must have changed. Older posts each describe this as "hazy" yet what Ive poured is crystal clearwait poured last ounce once the head settled & there is the haze. Bottle poured light hazy yellow hue with a slowly diminishing bright white head and good lacing. Light aroma of grain and mellon. Initial flavor very light sweet with a long bitter finish. Great beer to pair with food.

Pours very clear pale yellow with a small white head. Nose is melons, cherry, peach and corn syrup with a slight woody ginger note. The taste is ultra sweet, not enough bitter to balance it out. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, body is light and the finish is long.

Slightly nutty, very crisp, and goes tremendously well with Japanese food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
