riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Nose of grainy rice notes, a little sweetness, a touch of earthy notes as well. Smells to me like that japanese brown rice green tea. Fucking good, i like that shit. Pours amber, thin fizzy head. Flavors of that good ass japanese brown rice tea, light sweetness, a little toasty and earthy, grain, rice is there. Crisp finish, dry, quenching. Really good specialty grain beer. I enjoyed it.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2011
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.

DrSilverworm (6937) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to DanielCoor for sharing! Release #9, 5.6% ABV. Totally hazy orange amber color. Minimal white head, dots of lace. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good toasty, grainy malt bill. Light citrusy hop to it. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid, easy-drinking smooth brown rice ale.. Never had a rice ale that was specifically brown rice, pretty cool

sebletitje (6895) - 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.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bomber from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 4/26/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of rice, floral hops and faint nutty notes. The taste is very much similar with a bit of apple and caramel as well. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours opaque yellow with a white head. Nose is malt, hops, slight nail polish, and noticeble sweetness with some pepper and some apple. Flavor is sweetness, apple, and pepper. Sweetness, some yeast, and more pepper bring up the rear into the finish. Interesting beer.
