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.

Draught at tap room for Great Divide, visited on October 7, 2012
Hazy pale straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Light acidic fruity scent. Sweet, acidic, herbal taste. Sweet, cream, herbal aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

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.

seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2017
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.

Sidnne (11) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2017
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.

pours a hazy pale straw color with a fluffy, pillowy head. aromas of hay and wheat. the beer lacked the effervescent zip that most refreshing lagers and light ales have. underwhelming.

RobertDale (6483) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Sample at Parkville Microbrew Fest 2017. Comes a somewhat hazy pale gold with an average white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and grain. Taste is malt, citrus, grain, and floral. Enjoyable.

JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2017
On draft. Yellow pour, lightly hazy, with a white head. Lightly bready, rice cracker, corn, mild hops, and watery. Easy drinking.

ajnepple (6625) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Sampled at WinterWonderGrass in Steamboat Springs, CO. Pale yellow and pretty clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of toasted malt, light yeast and light zesty hops. Similar flavor, adding a light grainy sweetness and a light hop bitterness (floral, herbal). Light body with a crisp feel and a light dry finish. OK.

2.6
AleJones (22) - Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Bright and clearer than I expected from the description. I'm smelling pair, banana, and apple. Faint hops fade into a grainy and crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A light, crisp summer beer. Nice and bright. And a pretty cool can, too. Better than I was expecting.
