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, served in a tall thin glass, what the bar called a "Strange." This was quite a bit fruitier than I had thought it would be - poured a very light and refreshing-looking yellow-orange, bubbly aroma of rice that put a very sweet tinge on the entire experience. I really like the color of this beer, but the glassware really left something to be desired, and didn’t do justice to this beer. Overall, it was refreshing, but I didn’t think it had what I really like about a Golden Ale - it was just too sweet in a ricey-grainy sort of way.

Sweet grain and bread malts, light, sweet citrus fruits. Hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More sweet grain and bread malts, light caramel, molasses, bittersweet citrus fruits, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Boring, sweet malt juice. Keg at brewery barrel warehouse, Denver.

Aroma is rice/malts, fruit and grainy. The flavor is rice/grains/malts, fruit and a mix of tart, mild sweetness and a slight hint of funk in the finish.

Flaska, en trappa upp, pitchers örebro. Gul vätska. Doft av bröd och lite löv. Trist och intetsägande smak. Blött ljust bröd med majscorn och ris.

Poured at the Eastern Oregon Beer Festival a slightly cloudy light yellow brew with a small white head. The aroma was alcohol and rice grain. The body was medium. Very subtle flavor. I tasted the grain and some hops. Aftertaste was a little sweetness and fruit.

Can from Beers of the World. Aroma reminded me of rice pudding in a somewhat unpleasant way.

12oz can @ home. Hazy pale yellow pour with a sizeable fluffy white head. Light grain and wheat aroma. Flavors are very mild, grain, light citrus, touch of sweet malt. Drinkable and smooth, just not a ton of character.

Can - Very clear yellow color. Crisp flavor. Doesn’t linger on the palate for very long at all. Refreshing. Has more of an alcohol taste then I would like but still not bad.

Sampled at 777th Criderfest in a Willybecher glass, a hazy yellow colour, thin but long-lasting white foam, no lace. Low-level aroma and flavour, good enough, but not great. Light and sessionable at least, high carbonation, refreshing. Too bad about the name though...not exactly racist. But Samurai, really? Couldn’t come up with anything more clever for a rice beer?

Hazy straw color. Light and fruity aroma...some warm lager fermentation smell, nice cider and saki notes. Taste is light and refreshing, a bit sweet, effervescent. Some light citrus notes. Easy drinking. Not amazing, but interesting.

Interesting beer. Poured from a can. Pale yellow in color, hazy. Aroma is similar to that of a lager or pilsner. Flavor is like a lager, but with a bit of citrus or fruitiness, and a little bit tart. Smooth, refreshing, easy to drink. A bit fizzy, but not bad.
