In the summer of ’74, the kids at school went crazy about one man - Bruce Lee. Enter the Dragon had hit our shores and, across the playground, second-graders were mastering their roundhouse kicks. But where other boys saw an idol, brother Dave saw an oppurtunity. Without delay, he asked me to cut up mum’s wretched bamboo screen into eight-inch sticks. Lashed together with old rope, these hand-made nunchucks fetched the pricely sum of two Sunnyboys each. Business was booming until Ms Woodruff busted him with four sets in his schoolbag. We dedicate this beer to the legend of Bruce and the brief trade that followed

Maris (1020) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2013
from a 330ml bottle on 29/8/2013. Pours a clear medium yellow with a small head. Has quite a nice light fruity aroma featuring lychee, pineapple and passionfruit. The flavour is more subdued in comparison, with some sweet fruity notes, a bit of rice and some light bready malt. The body is light and carbonation moderate. Easy to drink and very interesting for a pale lager.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle at Mrs Parma’s. Pours a pale golden color with a fairly small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma is fruity, with citrus, bit of malt sweetness and grassy. Taste of citrus, fruit, mild malt sweetness and bit of gain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, Crisp, fresh and refreshing. Nice beer that hits the sport on a hot summer day.

RafeAU (188) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Tasting at Plonk, re rating with a bottle. This pale amber coloured rice lager has some toffee sweetness and packs a surprising burst of hoppy flavour with little bitterness. Great summer session beer, very ?smashable?. Could drink one after the other in the sun very happily.

Surprisingly good. First time I tried it didn't enjoy, but second tasting was good. Lovely foamy head settles well. Nice high aroma, great rounded taste with ok palate / aftertaste. Where's the rice? Nice enough drop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It pours a bright clear yellow, fast diminishing head, fruity lemon aroma, unbelievably refreshing to drink, could easily drink several.

An interesting entry by 2 Brothers that doesn't quite engage the taste buds to the extent that you would expect a Rice Beer to. A slightly shark aroma is contrasted by a smooth palate that doesn't quite reach the peaks you expect. Worth a taste but not upper echelon. Frangimus

This beer surprised me. I am not usually a fan of rice lagers, however this has some nice complexity. Pale straw yellow with a white head. High carbonation. Very fruit arms of citrus, straw and pineapple. Nice malty flavour, unexpected because of the rice.
