COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft samples at Great Divide. Pale gold. Small white head. Nose is grainy and sort of sweet. They told me this was a rice beer. Taste is grainy, rice flavors, and sort of sweet. Body is light and crisp. Ends with more grains, sweet malts and rice. Ok I guess. Didnt so a whole lot for me.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Draft...Mid-GABF 06, Great Divide Open House, Denver... Hazy golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention. Meek floral aroma and grainy flavor. Mild sweetness and tanginess with a gentle hop bite. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Tap at Great Divide. Pours to an extremely carbonated unfiltered straw/caramel body. Thick lasting white head. The flavor is lightly ricey tart pale malt. Sounds boring, but tastes great. The aroma is lightly floral simple pale malts and light rice. The palate is smooth, very easy drinking. Nice texture and a medium mouthfeel. Ill give credit where its due, this is an easy drinking beer. I liked it a lot.

On tap at the Great Divide Brewery Tour 9/28/06. Aroma is clean, light malt, almost nothing though. Color is light straw, slight haziness, white head. Flavor - very light and clean, almost a blonde. Finishes dry--nothing negative. Overall, a good lawnmower beer, but fairly tasteless.

I am not a big fan of rice beer...but whenever Great Divide brews, they bring the pain. I would have liked a little more malty aroma, and perhaps a bit of citrus finish to coincide with the summer beer catagory, but hey - its rice beer. What can you do?

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2006
this one caught my attention because the brewmaster kinda skipped over the tap as we sampled the hibernation, hercules, etc. this once is actually brewed with rice. which aint the norm for a micro or should i say a good micro. golden hazed appearance with white head. slight malt crunch nose. palate marks same territory with a crisp easy drinkn fresh beer. lemon zest and tinge of bitterness.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2005
GABF week. Pours very light color with an ok head. Light malt with some herbal hints and a slight fruitiness. Flavor is very light but clean and easy drinking wiht some light malt and a touch of bitterness. Ok overall, but not up to GDs standards.
