2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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......

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 ...
