3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught@SOPP Helsinki 2013. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is rice, some floral notes as well as mild grass. Flavour is fruity, floral, grassy and some slight ricelike sweetness and mild bready malts. At first I wasn’t a fan, but actually, it turned out to be a quite pleasant thirst quencher and actually would work very well on a warm summers day on the terrace. Smooth and quite bodied for being a rice beer.

Clear yellow color, small steady white head. Flowery citrusy aroma. Light-bodied. Citrus, fruityness, rice .... Nicely hoppy, sweetish with clean mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale, but nice haze. Smells ricey and adjuncty. Similar taste. Pleasant hopping. For an adjunct lager, this is very good, but it’s still an adjunct lager, and I don’t like rice.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Keg at SOPP’13, 20130725) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, yeast and something sewer like. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was light and bitter. The beer was easy to drink but too mild flavoured.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap@sopp. Yellow, pale, cloudyness. Bulk lager character, has some of that good bud light thing going (the rice?). Good subtly green hops though, mellowy. Body light, surprisingly flavourful. Good beer for a hot day. Hoppy flavours, mild.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,2l on tap @ SOPP2013. The description promises something special but really it’s a very ordinary lager with a hint of hops in the finish.
