Has some on tap at the Magic Hat brewery. I really liked it. Pours a light brown with a mld white head. Nose is slightly sweet certain crispness to it. Taste is mild and balanced, with notes of rice. Smooth with a clean finish, this is a very drinkable beer.

Growler fills at Half-Time. Pours a light clear brown with a huge honey beige head that eventually falls down enough to drink, though some of that may be that I tasted it fairly soon after we hooked up the keg. Smells clean and sweet with a touch of citrus and a bit of roasted rice smell to it that reminds me of my favorite Korean restaurant which serves their rice in these large super heated rock bowls that retain their heat and brown and crisp up the rice in contact with the bowl, caramelizing it slightly. Smooth and sweet with a little caramel. Pretty tasty, especially compared to some of their other recent odd notions which seem to have been more on the miss side of the equation. Finishes with some big lager notes, a touch grainy, and almost a hint of metal.

Sample at the VT brewers fest. Not sure exactly the class this one falls into, maybe specialty grain, maybe lager. Either way this was one of my favorites a the festival this year. It poured a slightly hazy amber with a nice white head and some lacing. Aroma was malty/hoppy/grainy. Some really nice flavors going on. A woody, grainy character melded nicely with a slight hop edge. Light bodied with a great full flavor. Really liked it and hope to see the new trail mix soon!
