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.

Bottle. The pour was a hazy pale straw yellow with an average (1-2 fingers) white frothy head, which receded down to a thin cap and created some excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light pale grain malt, a mild grassy hop and light musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a mild adjunct presence (rice), a slight hint of vanilla and a mild fruity ester. The taste was a bit sweet with a good grain malt presence early on, and then became mildly bitter with a note of citrus and a bitter adjunct ending. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a lightly sweet and creamy grainy taste that was left to fade. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery/creamy texture and a mild carbonation. Overall a brew that has a firm handle on subdued taste, although it was malty- sweet with bitter-smooth feel and possessed a good drinkability...

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.

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.

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.

On draft. Yellow pour, lightly hazy, with a white head. Lightly bready, rice cracker, corn, mild hops, and watery. Easy drinking.

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.

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.

Barreras (1687) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours a light yellow color with a light fruit aroma. Taste is crisp, lightly fruity, the rice gives this beer an easy drinkability. A nice refreshing beer that could be a poolside beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5084) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 10, 2016
Apparently this used to be regularly distributed in Japan. Bready fruity aroma on a bright gold body. Smells like a golden ale, its got a very dry body and fruity (peach) and soda bread flavor. Its ok.
