3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
275 mL bottle. Never heard of Sorachi Ace hops until now, let alone known that they produce the unique buttery flavour mentioned in a few other rates. Pours a light golden colour with a fine head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. A little popcorn, yeast and lemon zest on the nose. The diacetyl comes through in the flavour as well, brioche comes to mind a little. Mildly flavoured, lightly bitter and mildly carbonated, easy on the palate and fairly light tasting. A decent quencher, but not all that interesting.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a big surprise very mild but big and flavorful.Aroma was light with grassy nose and touch of lemon. Poured cloudy off yellow two finger thick head. Mouthfeel was smooth, nicely carbed, and extremely quaffable. Tasted of pepper, lemon, grassy hops and sweet malt. Very sessionable great summer brew.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2010 On tap at Magpie - came a very pale, but slightly hazy golden. Thick, small white cap. Aroma fruity, yeasty, and a touch funky. Rice comes through in the flavour, but in a proud way, not hidden, adjunct-style. It is on show here. Gains grassy-bitter hoppiness as it warms. Not a favourite style of mine, but this is a very well-done example, and would be a lovely summer sessioner.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma with biscuit notes. Clear straw colour. Bitter front with malty notes, and grassy finish. Light body with lively carbonation. Not bad, but not good either.

On Tap. Solid, but average. A great pub brew that goes very with the food served onsite. Light, grassy and sweet malty. Drinkable but forgettable. I would prefer a more robust and malted version.

Pours light with crisp white head. Minimal aroma. Not a lot going on flavour-wise either: a bit of hop. Refreshing aftertaste.
