I’ve avoided this beer in the past because usually i don’t like Asian beer, rice and beer usually is gross, unless your doing sake bombs. However great divide pulled it off with flying colors. Its got a nice standard ale flavor but its much lighter, its almost as light as a cheap pilsner, but its got the flavor of a proper ale. The rice flavor is so mild its there the entire time but its very mild. Theres a nice roasted barley flavor that comes though right after the initial taste. When the beer first enters your mouth its a very standard ale taste but quickly blends into a nice complex rice and malt flavor. This is a great ale because its extremely light but still packs good flavor.
