Transfer from BA review on 10-27-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a very light patchy lacing. Smell – The aroma is malty with notes of rice. With these aromas is a very light citrus hop aroma. Taste – The flavor begins with a light sweetness and a malty flavor. The flavors up front are a mixed with some notes of a mild rice flavor. As the taste advances some more sweetness of a more sweet light caramel and corn flavor comes to the tongue. These sweeter flavors then begin to die down again more toward the end, where some light hop flavors come in to the taste and with the drying out of the sweetness, they combined to leave a crisper taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is moderate in thickness and smoothness with a carbonation level that is a little above average. Rather appropriate for the style and makes it more refreshing. Overall – A fairly standard lager style for the most part. Quite easy to drink, non-offensive, but nothing with tons of flavor.

VincentKabel (209) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
This beer has a freshness that is normal for every beer made with rice. Not interesting at all. Slightly malty, almost no hops. Watery beer. But, as any other, refreshing on a hot day (if cooled down properly). Not interesting at all.

33cl bottle thanks to Lynn. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - pale malt and just a hint of citrus. Taste - more lemon malt and some honey. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a good solid lager.

generallee08 (714) - New York, USA - JUL 25, 2014
A bright golden colored beer with great clarity and some carbonation fills my big German mug. On top I got a tall bright white head of foam that quickly faded to a thin wispy covering and as I drank it only made some light spotty lacing. In the nose there is very little to pick up. All I got was a light cracker like maltiness with a wisp of grassy hops. The flavor is simple, light and refreshing. I get a mild dry biscuity/cracker like malt base with a light kiss of hop bitterness. The finish is dry and a tad astringent. It has a light body with light carbonation and a thin watery feel.

Fles gekocht bij de Carrefour, helder goedgeel met een witte schuimkraag. In geur en smaak duidelijk pils tonen maar ook de rijst. Matige body.
