Subtle, complex flavors. Slightly sour and yet rich. I often drink this at the sushi bar when Im not in the mood for sake. Pairs quite well with the fish.

Botella. Color mbar rojizo. Turbia. Aroma flojito. No dice mucho. Quiz leve arroz inflado. Curioso sabor. Cereal y con toques afrutados, frutos rojos

Towey1989 (2005) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle at Beyond The Pale, Leek. Pours a hazy amber colour with thin white head. Aroma of baked beans, rice, tomato, some soy sauce, slight paprika and subtle spice. Taste of baked beans, rice, tomato, some rice and subtle spice. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A weird, rice beer. Lots of tomato and baked bean flavour. Odd but drinkable.

robforbes (2199) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Pours a very cloudy amber red with a small dirty white head that goes away quickly, heavy carbonation, and a little lacing. Smell is of fruits, hops, leaves, and malt. Taste is a bit sour, fruit, caramel, some molasses, and a little bit of hops. Ends tangy on the tongue and a little chocolate aftertaste.

De espuma fina y delicada, pero persistente, aroma muy floral y afrutado, de fcil entrada en la que sus siete grados no se encuentran por ningn lado. Muy recomendable.

MissAnthropic (49) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016
Sweet spicy nose, smells like sticky rice. The flavour is almost like jolly ranchers. Oily palate. Cinnamon on the aftertaste. Really good though?

Bue John Viande en pression. Bire rouge, lgrement voile/trouble. Carbo quasi nulle. Petit col de mousse tenue moyenne. Arme trange difficile identifier : fermier, assez lourd (riz ?). En bouche, assez ronde, pas de bulles. Final sur les fruits rouges,type grenadine et le sucr. Belle dcouverte !

Fruits in the taste, a refreshing bite to it. A very pleasant sweetness that doesnt become too much, just very tasty and different. Enjoyed it a lot!

thellgren (860) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is amber or red, cloudy and OK head. Aroma has rice. Taste has at first bitter crispness which turns into something smooth. Well, I guess thats the taste of rice. This is, however, not your typical lager with a rice adjuncts, but a serious beer with a complex taste of rice. Very Japanese - something between sake and an ale.
