Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a white frothy tight head and leaves a creamy collar. Aroma is citrus spice and malt. Taste is more the same with a lingering bitterness and spice. Palate is medium and creamy with a lively carbonation and dry finish. Easy drinker with a spice finish, not bad brew.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
22oz bottle. Poured a clear light copper color with a small, thin head. Aroma was grain notes, like brown rice (went well with my brown rice sushi I ate). Flavor was a touch of brown rice, mild, a bit like a lager. Not too bad, but nothing spectacular.

BeerandBlues2 (12198) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011

Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, grain, meal), light hops (earthy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of nutty brown rice. Flavor is heavy malt (cereal, grain, meal), light hops (earthy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of nutty brown rice. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation, and a dry finish. The clean nuttiness of the brown rice gives it a near lager-like flavor.

hoptimus_prime (73) - Utah, USA - MAR 11, 2011
took the brown the wrong way. not sure why, thought brown was for darker malts, not here.. Poured a little chill haze, gold yellow color white medium foamy head. Nose is light pale malt, a little pinch of hop, a little yeasty. The drink was light, sweet, a little light nutty/bread, light hop, a neutral taste overall. could have a bit more character, but is still enjoyable.

Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours orange/copper with off white head. The aroma is spicy with yeast and then moving toward an apricot to apple like fruitiness. The taste begins spicy then it picks up grains, apple, pear and apricot. Interesting stuff and easy drinkn’s too.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2011
Bouteille partagée avec Ibrew2or3. Couleur dorée paille, mousse blanche. Qcq notes de riz, malt et houblon avec un léger aspect de fleur. Le riz se mélange bien avec le houblon pour un palais un peu citronné laissant une fine pellicule d’amertume au fini. L’usage de riz est perceptible et donne une bonne dimension à la bière qui surpasse de loin les autres grosses brasseries qui utilisent du riz pour un résultat plus que médiocre.
