Bought a bottle at Martinettis in Brighton. Smells like Beast. Slightly hazey golden color. Super light taste. Has gross, rice-like after taste. Taste like old rice. Note: this beer was drank slightly after the freshness date. I cant imagine anyone drinking this regularly.

Pale yellow with a thin white head, thin and watery body, average carbonation. Very little flavour and bitterness. Sweet & fizzy. Not terrible but not great.

Although not remarkable, it was enjoyable. Pours pretty much like a typical American macro. Slightly hoppy aroma, that drinks easy with a light malted corn taste and a crisp dry finish.

24 oz can, canned on 4/16/13. Pours clear gold with a force-carbonated head. Aroma is tap water. Taste is sweet malts, boiled vegetables and white rice. No hops, but a very unusual vegetable finish. Very simple and easy to drink, but I dont think Ill pay $2.50 for it again.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Yes, its golden clear with a very clean white head and its a lager. It goes great with Asian food--I wouldnt laze on a summer afternoon guzzling them. No strong taste of its own makes it a good choice for certain cuisine.

A distictive lager with an odd aroma, falvor. Hard to explain, but tastes like olives. Pours as expected in color and gravity but no head. Good mouthfeel.

...interesting! not normally a fan of asian beers, but this is probably one of the best. very smooth, no aftertaste.

Pours golden color with white head. Lots of adjunct (rice), grass, straw, some citrus. Minimal hops. Light bodied and easily drinkable, good with sushi. Nothing complex or exciting here as expected.
