Shared this bottle with Craig at the Brauhaus. Wish they’d used more rice so this could be a cream ale. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of bready yeast, caramel and barley. Similar flavours. Mildly bitter with lingering grassy hops. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Small bottle in Vientiane, Laos. Pours a pale golden yellow. One finger white head that lingers. Aroma of hops and rice. Some sweet citrus taste with bitter hops and yeast. Medium body. Light and refreshing on a hot day. Unremarkable with a slight bitter aftertaste.

PanMarek (220) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Sweet hop/malt nose. Pours light golden with thick white foam. Crisp, active carbonation with medium body. Slight skunk that the hoppiness balances out. Another good beer for the heat and humidity.

adamnowek (1734) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Got it for the country tick. Aroma is hay. Taste is somewhat sweet with a spicy little finish, but it’s imbalanced on the former.

LazyPyro (524) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with a minimal white head disappearing immediately. Aroma is typically grainy but has some good malt character to it. Taste of typical pale malt, grainy, corn, some hops. Watery. Average. Probably better with spicy food, or on a really hot day.

Cimbasso (705) - - APR 19, 2016
A golden-coloured lager with a white head. Slight corn syrup aroma. Taste is thin and in unmemorable. Sweet, slightly syrupy taste, with a bland rice-based flavour. Little bitterness. Quite forgettable.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Gold color and clear. Little head and no lace. Grainy corn macro aroma. Some stew to the nose. Lots of corn to the taste. I give some credit for the presence of hops thin body and elevated carbonation.
