MiP (15247) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle, 5.0%. Weak vinous aroma. The flavour is slightly sweet with a hint of butter and sweet, spicy hop. Fruit aftertaste, like sweet apple or something.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 18, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a yellow beer with a white head. The nose is of chestnuts, rice and herbs. Oily. The taste is sweet with notes of chestnuts and rice. Slightly sour with a very low bitterness. Some breakfast cereals and honey. Herbal buttery finish with a hint of lemon.

pivnizub (10085) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle (the COOP version, thanx to Quack-Duck !) Grainy, slightly sourish nose, pale golden, no head to speak of; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, crisp MF, light bodied; delicate bitter-sweet finish with an even more delicate fruity aftertaste. Nothing unpleasant detectable, but a real thin fizz......

Quack-Duck (9116) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2007
bottle, bought at Coop labelled Birra di Riso Ticinese. Clear golden colour, small head. Well-balanced brew, malty, slightly hoppy with slight hints of rice. Dry finish. The rice is not as obvious in the flavour as expected.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
Bottled. Pale golden, creamy head. Swet with evident rice flavour. Light-medium body. No bitterness. Drinking it side to side with a cheap Chinese beer, and it would be difficult to guess which was which. Keep the rice on the plate and not in the bottle next time please!

Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2007
clear and bright golden colour with a solid irregular white head made of big bubbles; nice lace; light corny, grainy aroma; slightly sweet, medium-bodied at best; the palate is a bit harsh; it finishes quite dry with more corny notes - poor
11/2006: under the name Birra di Riso Ticinese; brewed using rice from Ticino, brewer unknown - clear and very pale golden-yellow colour; stable white head and a nice lacing; the aroma is grainy with a hint of fat aromatic hoppiness; mild and sweet palate, a light tartness does not avoid this beer to be a little bit heavy; the finish is short and corny - I would also recommend fine food with this beer, so you will be less aware of what is in your glass ...
